    I don't know why the nhl insists on wasting everyone's time with these stupid 'playoffs'. It's obvious the cup should be awarded to the statistically superior team at the end of the regular season. Anything else is just luck and therefore, not valid.

    Especially when wristers are involved!

    Ah, okay, but he boosts morale of other players; I don't consider him selfish.

    Yeah he boosts morale of his teammates but it doesn't necessarily mean that he cannot be selfish too.

    Well, in that case, everyone is selfish, even if they care about others. They stick to their best interests at least once in their lifetime.

    Indeed but I think there are different kind of selfishness and some players like Crosby can make their teammates around them better than others

    No, no, only Crosby's scoring goal number one in a 5-1 game was important.

    All of Ovechkin's goals are meaningless garbage goals.

    Idk, ask Werenski dumping the puck out of play or Boone Jenner exploding Oshie's stick. The ticky tack calls were even for both sides.

    They didnt. They were down 4-3 with two of the goals being powerplay goals.


    Again, watch the game

    Has there ever been an elite elite scorer in modern hockey, who wasn't selfish?

    Not really. It's pretty trite. Everyone looks at stats to dig into what happened.

    The Caps being beaten by so many wrist shots can tell you something as opposed to, say, 7 of 9 goals being deflections/tips.

    Other stats, and posts, are less useful.

    Neither team has scored a deflection shot. Each team has 1 tip goal. So what does that tell us?

    Is Djoos going to be in the lineup for game 3? Haven't paid much attention throughout the year, but after last playoffs I thought he was going to be a solid player.

    Every pens fan knew that the Orpik signing was going to come back and bite them. Not only or salary and bad play, but keeping someone out of the lineup that should be.

    The powerplay has been 8th best in the league since the trade deadline.

    With this lineup the Jackets are a different and much better team than the one we saw most of the season.

    Try again with the "unsustainable" nonsense

    Watch the games, people.

    I think it tells us the teams have scored the same number of tip in and deflection goals.

    Based on regular season trends you wouldn't expect too many deflections, while tip goals can vary quite a bit depending on the team. But one common fact is wrist shot goals are close to 50% of total goals for just about every team. The Jackets have scored almost 80% of their goals on wristers. These are usually close or medium range shots that a goaltender will save more than 90% of the time. Caps goaltenders are only stopping 8 of 10 wrist shots which is usually a formula for disaster.

    The Capitals have not been getting good goaltending in the playoffs for a few years. This series is no exception. If that single position decides to show up then it will be a long series.
