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!!

losing streak/hbo show

nice to see the caps losing streak end but i think they celebrated that win over ottawa waaay to much!i think the cameras following then r making them act a little different.They are winning right now 4-1 over the Devils,second intermission,hopefully a repeat of toronto wont happen{lol}watching the first hour of the hbo show,u could tell that pitt is a tighter,better team,practices look crisp and the caps dont!the Capitals top forwards are just playing brutal and the media keeps pouring it on!hopefully the caps will weather the ebbs and flows of the nhl season and go into the playoffs knowing some tough times behind them and it can help them win in the playoffs only time will tell!the hbo show is cool but i will be glad when  the cameras r gone and the team can focus on getting home ice for the postseason......
