"I'd be more concerned with Orpik cross checking Semin in the back of the head. Even though the injury didn't take place that was way more vicious," Boudreau said. "I'm sure they're telling [Orpik]: 'He'll take retaliation penalties go after him.' All you have to do is watch the regular season and you know that's going to happen. I thought Alex did a great job with self restraint yesterday."
I missed all that. But I will look for it tonight not being confined by TV and their absolutely ridiculous close ups on players when the action is still on. One good thing about the old NHL, you actually saw replays.

I saw it last night. It was on the play where Semin drew a penalty from someone (Scuderi? Not sure who) but Orpik knocked Semin down from behind and then threw a crosscheck to his neck/head while he was down on the ice.

If there is such thing as karma, we will win this series because of the Pen's fans arrogance.

Just *** win please.

@ chim thanks. the reality is that tons of stuff happens in hockey. If your team turns the other cheek and wishes to play it clean, go for it. I am glad Bruce pointed that out after the world turned upside down because our best hitter injured who is possibly their most fragile dman.

Who is the noob, tom googliata? I hope he gets tested tonight.

Tonight's game is an OPPORTUNITY for the Capitals to show themselves what they are capable of.

Karma's a *****. Cross-checks are love taps til your number one d man gets knocked out then its a whine fest

This series is just beginning to escalate imho. Whoever is losing late is going to just go off. Whichever side it is its going to be fun.

Does anyone else feel we might be able to capitalize on Pitt possibly trying enact some sort of revenge for OV tripping Gonchar?

I don't expect Kozlov, Semin and Fleischmann to magically understand what it takes to win these types of games.

If Ovechkin and Varly don't have their best game, they'll lose...and lose in Pittsburgh.

Please don't lump him in with the other two. Semin was perhaps our best forward in both 1st round series.

he had some high, highs and some pretty pathetic lows. He needs to step it up now that we're down to 3 games.

I don't know if all of their forwards and Green have to be at the top of their games offensively but the defense--and Green in particular--has to do a better job of limiting Pittsburgh's quality scoring opportunities.

Anyone noticed the Pens fans aren't pretending this isn't a rivalry anymore?

I mean, it was a little ridiculous when, anytime the Caps would get mentioned, they'd show up just to say how little they cared about the Caps, but that moment seems to have passed.

Here's hoping the team can get the momentum back tonight.

I was going to say the same thing. Funny.

I hope they enjoy my new avatar and tagline! Should bring back some good memories for them.
