Hammer is -2 so far tonight. played over 7 min. in first. At this rate he will be burnt out by christmas
Are you watching the game? I'm not sure which goals he was on for but I wouldn't be looking to put any blame on him. The goals:
1. A pass from the corner hits Green's skate and goes top corner.
2. A shot from the corner hits the back of Vokouns leg and goes in.
3. Washington's forwards forget or simply don't bother to pick up Moore who is alone in the slot.
Two bits of bad luck and some awful play by the forwards. If that awful play by the forwards helps burn him out then maybe, but the stats don't tell the story of his game IMO. See how much ice time he gets by the end of the game. But it may not have a huge impact. We'll have to wait and see.
On another note, Caps getting away with stuff in this period. And as I type that, they get called.
