    That was intense! Don't think I breathed through the last 2 minutes.

    Vasy was our 1st, 2nd and 3rd star tonight with the PK getting honorable mention. Back to Tampa with the series tied?!?! Whoda thunk it? o_O

    He looked good in round 1 and was a physical beast in round 2, but he sure did fall off a cliff in round 3, so has McDonagh

    Apparently Washington played Thunderstruck in the arena right before the PP and Killer’s goal. What were they thinking?!?!?! So great.

    It felt like he and McDonagh were in a horse race tonight. Now granted, McDonagh made a few key tips on passes so I won't bust the guy too hard. But at one point somewhere around the 3rd time he had the puck on his stick and failed to clear I was openly frustrated. I hope he gets better soon. Game 5 is gonna be hell

    We knew his career playoff stats were bad coming into this but it's strange to see him lose his effectiveness along the boards and not use his big body, things that were on full display with 91 & 86 to end the season. We desperately need some guys outside of our 4th line to lay some muscle against the Caps, and Miller's a guy who can make contributions here. Guys who can't find roles to play are useless.

    I was thinking the same thing. I recall them always showing watch partys for teams.

    Meh it is what it is there. People get so hung up on numbers that they forget we were playing an Eastern Conference powerhouse playing in its 3rd ECF in 4 years with the NYR and then the inevitable 2 time champions. I would rather enjoy to see what our record is in games at home where we can clinch and what the goal differential is there. We did it twice against Detroit on our 1st opportunity, against the Islanders at the 1st opportunity, did it against Montreal in our 2nd opportunity at home and twice this year against the Devils and Bruins on our 1st opportunity. The other series we merely made history clinching game 7 on the road at MSG. No big deal

    In the end I would rather see us lose a game here and there late in the playoffs at home than knowing our goose is cooked on the road. If history has taught us anything it's that when we can close it off at home we get the chance

    Thought the same thing, didn’t want to say it lol. Those are the ones you look back in after squeaking out a win like this

    My tactic usually involves throwing negative shade and pessimistic thoughts out so the reverse jinx kicks in lol

    Doesn't matter. We'll keep tearing up whatever script they wanna write that doesn't have us hoisting the Cup at the end of the season.

    Miller's been getting worse as the playoffs have progressed. I'd still take him 10/10 times over Vlad in a playoff game, but he's playing softer and softer as the competition heats up.

    Always nice to see the guys happy after a win.

    That 4th line was on more than I would have liked to have seen but they did well. I've been impressed with how well Paquette and Callahan have done throughout the entire series, and in general, this postseason. Sure they make a mistake every now and then or don't provide too much offense but hot damn Callahan and Paquette on the defensive side of the game have done a fine job. Truly invaluable at times the effort Callahan goes to for shot blocking. Paquette as well.

    Kunitz I have mixed feelings on, he's not a liability most of the times but he's a tire fire every few shifts in his own end when he fails on clearing attempts. Provides no offense but I feel like he tries too hard at getting cute in our end and it backfires. Sometimes he's money and then times like tonight, he just hems us in from losing board battles.

    Miller has sucked this round. Hard. McDonagh also had some frustrating moments but he did manage to make a few key plays. Danny G I thought played well. Slow, but sound positioning.

    I really thought this series was gonna be over in 4 or 5 with the way we played the first two and tonight wasn't much different bar Khabilevskiy stealing the nation's capital, but if we can actually look like we did against Boston in two out of the possible next three games, we can do this. I just wish these guys would perform the way we know they can.

    want Heddy to cool off hid head, too. He doesn't need to do an extra stuff to be a great D. He said he'll never act stupid like that after the spear, but now he forgot.
    Want us to give zero PP for Caps next game. They were building momentum by getting consecutive PP this game!

    Caps have mastered the accidental interference.

    Gotta give the Caps credit. Their forecheck was lethal

    Kunitz looks like he does not give a **** some shifts, turns it over, skates casually, defends half assed with his stick out then goes for a change. His linemates are shining much more then he is. He does nothing on the ice that shows he's a 4time cup winner, Callahan looks way better in that regard. Saying this he'll probably score a clutch goal for us soon, but even after scoring game 7 OT last year for the pens they still didn't want him back after his garbage season.
