4-1 Caps. Please don't take the third period off this time!

MLK day. It seems like the Isles always have afternoon games on these Monday Federal holidays (do the same thing for Columbus day).

you are correct in that assessment. in fact, last year these two teams met on Columbus Day, with Brooks Laich scoring the game winner.

The Capitals went to 3-0-0 and..... well we all know what happened after that!

Hopefully the Caps are done with the looking past the umm....standingsly challenged teams.

Hopefully the offense shows up for this one. Caps haven't been too impressive 5on5 scoring-wise lately.

And now a positive note on the scoring, Pens have allowed just 9 goals in the last 4 games, the Caps scored 6 of them.

Can the league just go ahead and give the Islanders Tavares and put them (slightly) out of their misery? Nylander would be on their top line right now. Of course that's if we didn't give them the Stingrays because he would then have to beat them out. Naturally this means we'll make the game interesting to say the least

starting to get a bit more faith with Feds there and more than 1.5 lines capable of scoring.
Hopefully Ovi is starting one of his 10 game scoring sprees.

5-2 Caps

CAps Better come out ready to play. Can't be looking paSt teams wIth fewer poiNTs. THosE types of teams can be dangerous.


On a slightly related note, I wonder if Brendan Witt wishes he was still in DC.

I'm a teacher and it's a snow day here


The recent returnees to the lineup seem to be getting their legs back and the boys seem to be clicking again. Let's win these last 2 before the break. Easy teams so we need to take advantage and claim these points.

Hopefully Ovie starts it up again. He's been playing well but the scoring just hasn't bounced his way recently (except for the 2g 1a vs. the Pens).


GO CAPS GO!

The Islanders are going to lose the lottery. With the luck they have been having thats a sure thing.

If you end up in last place and lose the lottery this isn't a bad year to do it.

You get Hedman or Tavares and don't have to worry about anyone saying you picked the wrong one.

Yup. Especially for the Isles who could really use both players. There are some teams (like the Kings, or the Thrashers) for whom drafting Hedman would be a huge disappointment given their recent drafts.

I don't care if this game goes to OT or not, so long as we come home with 2.

So do I. But we should be able to finish this game in regulation.
