The thing that could hurt the Caps is the same thing that could hurt the Hawks - goaltending.
Their defense looks shoddy also. Sam said in the beginning that they're used to facing a ton of shots in the first period or something like that. They might be on a winning streak, but when the games start taking on more meaning I have a feeling they will get exposed again.
I guess his offense must outweigh his terrible defense, i enjoyed watching him just stand next to callahan on that deflection, he is twice as big as cally and he still just leans on him rather than push him around, poti is still a bum, but its not as noticeable on the caps
I am SO ashamed to be a Rangers fan when I read some of you guys' posts. That was an easy penalty by Girardi. Take off the homer goggles.
There was a time when if the puck was in the crease and in the vicinity of another player that you could take the body. Girardi didn't use his stick, he didn't hit him from behind, he pushed him and Ovechkin fell down and stared the ref into a call. The whistle hadn't blown yet, it wasn't late. You should be ashamed of yourself.
if you are SO ashamed, dont repond to anyones posts..........otherwise deal with it.....its a forum
Don't make a bigger fool of yourself. You wanna complain about the officiating? I wanna complain about my fellow fans not being able to admit a blatant penalty just because it went against US. Deal with it, it's a forum.
Don't forget all the quality saves Henrik has made.
If Hank's not in net I think the score is much higher in favor of Washington. Some weak plays, and some plays where he's stood on his head to keep this a 1 goal game.
I think this easily could've ended with double digits against. Easily. That's what happens when you buy a discount to the penalty box and ignore the body and player on every defensive play, except for when the refs makes the call on you.
