Caps win 3-2 in overtime.

Kessel
Ovechkin
Kulemin
Ovechkin
Ovechkin (OT)(EN)

Ovechkin gets his 300th career goal, an overtime game winner into an empty net, and (finally) ties Crosby in goals on the season. The main boards implode.

Hoping for a solid game tonight, though we still have the same recent blue line abscences and no Semin tonight. Semin I can live without, another Sloan/Collins pairing may be pushing our luck though.

The way I see it, the Caps have 0 excuse to drop any of these last three games, especially if Green comes back for the Panthers home and home.

Erskine/Collins, according to the Twitterverse. Sloan's a scratch.

Just got my twitter to load here at work. ****ing AT&T. Sounds like a slap in the face for TFS. Can't imagine he's happy about getting sat for a guy that has 1 NHL game in the last two years.

Sadly, Collins/Erskine is a more solid pairing simply by lack of Sloan.

Boudreau has specified that Semin's injury is playable were this the playoffs. Maintenance day for Sasha I guess.

What Boudreau should've probably also specified is that they would lie about it were this the playoffs, too. I have a feeling it's worse than they're admitting to. We'll see, I guess.

I'll politely disagree. Green/Hannan is an outstanding pairing. Green/Schultz on the other hand...

I'm going to be annoyed if we see ridiculous minutes for any top player. Let the grinders play.

Schultz is up there. And Varlamov when he's injured. But yeah, they're probably top 3.

I guess. Though we're all a little manic on this board as far as who we're angry at this week. The Green hate is unwarranted though.

IMO the top whipping boys in order around here are Semin, Schultz, Sloan, and Green.

This season is a massive improvement over the last two defensively, and while last year especially was awful - sitting here and ignoring his growth as a player isn't going to make us feel any better about this years playoffs.

Believe me, I was swearing at my TV just as much as you were - but knowing that Green is likely not going anywhere, I feel the need to accept his improvements as defenseman instead of spouting hate at every opportunity. He's far from a liability these days.

I still hate Willsie, and he's in the organization, so he counts.

So the Green hate is unwarranted because you think he might get better some day?

Got it.

Is there a reason you're getting ****** with me? Green is far from the liability he was over the last few seasons. That's merely an opinion. You're acting like I said TFS deserves a Norris nomination.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with treating TFS like the awful, awful hockey player that he is. At least Semin and Green clearly have redeeming qualities.
