The Habs did their best...the Caps withstood the onslaught of the second...got timely goaltending...and then Ovy delivered at a critical time...hard to imagine this not being done on Friday...well, at least we had some playoff hockey...and we were actually competitive for long stretches against a powerful team...
And if gomez hadnt thrown the puck away for no reason we might have had sustained pressure instead of a goal. He caused the goal, when gill goes up against ovechkin HE LOSES, its not rocket science. No our mentally challenged 7 million dollar 3rd liner wanted all the glory with a bad angle weak shot.
You've gotta feel bad for Price tonight. The deadly duo of Hamrlik and Bergy have absolutely killed any chance he had of giving us this victory. Quite frankly, I have no problem with Price's penalty, no matter how dumb it was. At least it shows that he cares, unlike Jaro who couldn't take responsibility for his terrible play.
It's back to the drawing board boys.
Ya, but Price still gets paid to make those saves. If he only stopped the easy ones, we could have any damn goalie in net. You going to blame Hammer on the first goal when Price should have had it too? I mean let's face it, the Caps goalie totally outplayed Price tonight.
team stopped playing, they know they can't win with this ******** reffing and their ******** coach.
Give me a break with the ref and the coach. You cant blame them for losing.
You're going to play the ref for giving us a powerplay that lead to a short handed goal?
The fact is the Caps are strong and they are getting great goal-tending too. We can play 40 minutes all we want but unless we score a **** load of goals we are not going to score.. the caps come off as monsters after the 3rd period all the time.
well we played well, our breaking point is giving up bad goals late in periods, but hey, good thing to build on for next year, ovechkins tearing us apart, but theres FEW teams in the nhl that he can't do that too.
