When you have a team with a half decent coach who has his team practice quick puck movement, you get some success. That was a textbook power play, made ours look bush league. And before BB lovers point to Pittsburgh's lack of success, think about the absurdity of your analogy before you make that argument.
Bruce "I get the least out of my talent" Boudreau, what's your next move besides putting your hand on your head?
at least he called him out on national tv and took him off the PP for a bit. But then he put him right back out there to fail again. I think more of BB this year than I did last. But that's not saying much. I really have to wonder if this group will ever learn.
Same old story. Carry the play until the special teams starts. Proceed to suck eggs on the PP before getting waxed on the PK. Tampa's up, they'll sit back, Caps will struggle to break the zone and will hustle less. Game over.
This'll be a short series, folks. Might steal one in Tampa if they ease up a little and Roloson stops stoning everything, but they'll only disappoint the faithful in home ice in game 5.
Disappointing but not altogether shocking. GL Sharks - if the Caps can't step up, at least make me some money.
This game is far from over but Caps need to wake up
They're awake. Not like the 3rd period of last game. But they simply aren't playing good hockey. No traffic, lack of shots, stand watching on the PK. The Lightning aren't even playing all that well, but they convert their chances at an alarmingly better rate than the Caps. If the Bolts create more chances, the Caps will get swept.
Its time for someone on this team to grow a set of testes and get in Roloson's face. The powerplay is broken, so the only way to score is to get Roloson off his game. The only question now is: who is willing to do something that may actually be considered aggressive? Put the purses away and play like you give a sh**.
