WOW,brink of elimination

well,dont know what to say?the Flyers beat the Bruins four st8 last season,thats all i got....kudos to the bolts they r getting the job done and scoring greasy,timely goals!!wooow,mike green is just terrible,cant believe how bad he is,he needs to sit in the pressbox,the former norris candidate is so bad right now also backstrom must be hurt,he is just awful!!!a four game sweep by tampa bay will be yet another kick in the stomach by the Capitals,i have cheered since 1984,langway,stevens,hatcher,bondra.............but cmon on man,painful........i have to ask rock the red when is enough?i will cheer tmrw hoping for a win and so on and so on but if the winnipeg jets ever return,i might switch is that allowed after 27 yrs of utter stomach blows?go caps!!

Second Round Preview

although i was looking forward to playing pitt and beating the pens,the bolts have battled back from 3-1 to win their first round series.Tampa will be rolling {no pun intended} with confidence,they have a great pp and roloson is solid in net..The boys in red will need to bring a strong defensive effort,keep up the pk and strike on the pp when NEEDED!i think if the Capitals play their game that they can prevail,tampa will be tough out and this series will be a long battle,neuvirth could be a difference maker!see u friday night and rock the red!!

First Round Win

well,the red machine had a solid effort saturday,following up their comeback by closing out the pesky Rangers in five......hopefully Mike Green and Mike Knuble can rest and recover..i thought ovies goal was a total backbreaker,crowd and team feed off his energy,he is most effective when he doesnt try to do too much,smart line changes and better in his own end,backstrom was so patient in the defensive zone today,picking up loose pucks,checks and making smart reads...neuvirth,solid when called upon.....it really does not matter who we play in the second round,the Capitals just need to keep playing solid and have that EFFORT every night and we see what happens,good for the team to put last seasons debacle to bed!nice work bruce and staff!!lets go caps!!

wow,caps comeback!

wow,what a gutsy effort,down three on the road after two!battle back and win in ot,crazy!the crowd was insane and silenced by chimera........no knuble,mojo stepping up with two huge goals!this game wont be so special unless the caps finish off the Rangers on saturday,i am fully expecting a desperate ranger team on sat which should be a classic patrick division clash!kudos for bruce not pulling neuvy and he fought through the second and shut the door!also the penalty killing has been huge!!!any comments or thoughts on the series?

playoff push?

the caps have been playing solid since the trades of arnott and wideman but they have a two week period on the road with back to back games vs mon and det then nj,philly,ott and mon again..........tough,tough games after this 8 game streak,i hope the caps can go 3 and 3 on this road trip..........the effort and defensive presence seems to be in the teams mind nightly...........night and day for the caps and pens if u watch the winter classic series again!holtby and neuvy have to be the two playoff goalies with the oft injured varly being the odd man out....rock the red and stay tuned it is going to get interesting!

Winter Classic

nice to see the caps get a win in front of the entire hockey world,crosby vs ovie,thats the way the league has to market the sport but lets take a little deeper look into the Capitals camp.......first the ice was horrible and iam glad no-one was injured.....next the overall defensive play of the caps,solid erskine had an apple and a good fight,also carlson and alzner were rock solid vs crosbys line....the pk was solid again and overall has been better this year.The goaltending of varly was excellant as well...all positive signs pointing forward and nice to see the pp pot one....The caps have battled through their skid and i hope have learned from it but once again only time will tell...when the pens won their cup they went through a nine game losing skid i believe...any thoughts on the line combos or particular play of anyone?love to see poti healthy,he can move the puck well when he is on..
