"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.
@ 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.
George McPhee....The Teflon GM. 15 years of failure and counting....
6 - Number of playoff series the Capitals have won since George McPhee took over as General Manager in 1997 (which makes him the third-longest-tenured GM in the League), three of which came in McPhee's first season on the job.
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.
