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..
