I hope you don't mind me joining the conversation. Ovechkin's defensive play has been a focus. Its been very public his work on his defensive game. I certainly hope you are not trying to lay Nash's shortie on Ovechkin. That was on Backstrom who should not have attempted that pass.

Ovechkin's defense play on the PP point has been a joy to watch. He is a destroyer.

As for Cheechootrain's point, he is correct. Nash was laying on top of Johnson in the crease when Backstrom started Ovechkin the other way for the first Washington goal of the game. that was as crash the net as you get.

When there was absolutely no retaliation for Pazzy, I realized the team had died.

On the other hand, when Boll flattened Brashear, Brashear was really shook up while he was sitting on the bench. It took awhile to recover.

I had been putting off scheduling any trips in April. I guess that month just opened up for travel.
That was a good hit by Boll. I thought Brashear had an injured shoulder after the way he went off the ice...

It was an awesome hit. I'm actually surprised Brash kept his cool and didn't go after Boll after that.

I've been working on a Jared Boll highlight movie all year, anyone know where I can find video of his hit on Brash. The DVR didn't work last night

I saw a comment that Pazzy let in a softie on the first goal. From my seat in 203, I heard the puck hit Pazzy's pad. A very loud thump. From our angle, it literally looked like the puck went through Pazzy. Not sure how that is a softie, he got part of it.

Ovie just has a lot of power. Both of his goals were absolute bullets - so quick. We just need to pick a player to go work with Ovie's personal trainer over the summer to get the proper upper body strength or whatever it takes to do that.

As far as their third goal, it was in and out of the net so fast I didn't even see it. It would have been nice to see a replay in the arena. People started booing because people didn't see the goal happen in the first place.

It looked like Foote's job last night was "cover Ovie". There was once in the third that the puck went down their side of the ice behind Foote and he just stayed with Ovie. Foote can get away with stuff that would have had Tollie sitting in the box all night. That is what experience and a reputation can get ya. Ovie was giving people little shoves and stuff all night long too.

We needed 2 points. I'll take 1. Giving them the 2nd point doesn't directly hurt us.

I think the guys are feeling better, but are not healthy yet. The question is whether it ends up going around a second time through the room before they are all healthy. They seemed to have more jump last night then in the Minny game.

I did some quick math and figured out, point-percentage-wise, phoenix is rounding out the 8th spot with a final total average looking like 91 pts. To finish with 92 points we need to go 17-9-1 the rest of the way. Can the CBJ make this happen?

We got the backup treatment with Brent Johnson again, and still couldn't win.

I thought that last night at one point to, but it's been said before we have a way of making many goalies look great. It's just a simple lack of enough skilled players, plain and simple. One of the problems is that we can play so well at times under Hitchcocks leadership we expect to play that way all the time. Perhaps that's another bar I have set to high. We need some skilled offensive players other than Nash and Zherdev, if that doesn't happen one way or another our scoring woes will continue.

The other thing, one major reason we are (or were?) even close to the 8th seed is due to Leclaires 8 shutouts, if he hadn't played so well this year we wouldn't be this close to making the post season.

Oh yeah, if it wasn't for Leclaire we'd be on the bottom with LA and Edmonton.

And now that he's banged up, the Jackets true colors are showing.

Leclaire made us look like a better team than we really were.

You could say the same thing about Zher and Nasher.

It's probably true about ALL team sports that one or two players makes the team better than they would be without them.

Another question that remains unanswered is whether or not Leclaire HIMSELF was playing above his level, and the last few games he was finding his true level. I hope not.

Half of those have got to be from us who were at the game trying to figure out how the third goal was scored. And this video package STILL doesn't show me what happened!
(I heard it WAS in BTW)

It was in. Did a lap around the back of the net, just under the crossbar.
But, man, was it fast.

(Yeah, Freddy No really sucks. He can't stop what we can't even see)

Think of the goal Nashville scored a few weeks back.
