Regular season game N°84
Seriously, can this person skate? I like her compete level.
His compete level. And nimble feet for such impressive girth. Maybe he can play goalie.
i used to think one of the greatest publicity stunts ever would have been Mike Tyson lacing up the skates for one game at MSG for a game vs the Flyers. Yes, he would wear boxing gloves. #hungover
Very low expectations on this one.
I hope it gets physical so maybe we'll atleast see some kind of effort level.
If there's no effort level on this one then just close the curtains and blow some **** up this summer. If they can't feel the immense sense of urgency now having lost G1, at home, facing going back to Columbus being down 2-0, with Trotz's (and other's) jobs on the line, on the brink of another early playoff exit then there's no hope it'll ever change.
That is how i felt before last years Game 7 and they completely tanked that game.
win the game idiots. it's f****** columbus lol
... the hottest team to finish the season ... lol
stop toying with him. Finish Bubba!
Close victory please. Nothing for them to rally round like PIT/PHI.
Hard worked win to remind them what it takes
Ovechkin's Caps are 7-3 in 1st rd game 2
6-3 when Caps have home ice.
I wonder if things would have been different if Kuznetsov didn't whiff on a wide open tip from Shattenkirk's shot-pass or if Winnick didn't shoot the puck 6 feet high and wide on his breakaway. Same thing with Ovechkin's breakaway back in 2010. They've had opportunities early in those games to establish a little positive momentum and didn't, and it felt like the weight of the situation got heavier as the game went on and opportunities were missed. Then again, Ovechkin scored first in G7 against the Rangers in 2015 and they still blew it that year, so... yeah.
I expect this to be a litmus test for the next couple of weeks. Win today and they should be back on track against a weak opponent (yes, CBJ sucks). Lose and we might as well start booking tee times.
With Gruby in net, I have 0 confidence of us winning the game. I don’t understand what people see in him, he’s just a backup who was on a hot streak, happens all the time.
Tell that to Pittsburgh and Matt Murray. A backup with a hot streak that now has two Stanley Cup rings, one of which he was a huge part of
Vrana scratched. LOL. This team.
Glad beagle’s back, but Vrana sits. I would have went...a different way
Murray has way better PO stats than Gruby in a much larger sample size. No team can win a series when the goalie allows 3.5 goals per game, which is Gruby’s playoff GAA.
Barry Trotz is a caveman. Might as well us a rock rather than a puck.
The guy with speed and drawing penalties? Thanks Coach Clueless.
Murray got the net with zero playoff starts and was a huge reason the Penguins won their first of back to back cups. Your argument has zero merit
Oh for ****'s sake. Who needs fast players with quick strike potential when you can replace them with offensive black hole security blankets?
And once he got in net he, unlike, Gruby, actually played well.
Called this one. I knew Trotz would go with the plodding, useless, "heavy" line up against CBJ because why ice a lineup that helps you dictate pace of play when you can just let Tortarella suck you into the slow-moving, suckfest brand of hockey he wants to initiate? Let the other team dictate terms and hope you get the bounces. Playoff Trotz, ladies and gentlemen... as if there was ever any doubt. Later, Barry.
Can’t wait to hire AV once Trotz is gone after getting swept by Columbus. At least he plays an uptempo style.
Scratching Vrana is LITERALLY the opposite of what we need to do. Trotz is indeed a caveman. Vrana had a few turnovers so Trotz, and I'm assuming a few posters on this board who seem to be related to him, see that as reason enough to scratch him.
Even with those turnovers Vrana was one of our three most dangerous players.
3 players that the Jackets seemed to have no answer for, Kuzy, Bura, and Vrana. Now what the hell do those guys have in common?
I mean Vrana used his deadly speed to gift wrap DSP a goal. I bet when Vrana asked why he was scratched instead of DSP Trotz replied, "Well, he scored a goal.:
