I don't always make GDT's but when I do ....
Woke up early today, @ 7 am. It will be tough to stay up for the whole game (until around 4 am, and this is without a potential OT)
I have a bad feeling about this.
I don't know why I keep looking forward to the playoffs. I'm sick to my stomach since I got up, and it will be that way until its over.
I'm years beyond feeling sick anymore, i'm ready for my annual disappointment.
I am once again comfortably numb. I think Caps will win, Grubauer is ready for his shot.
Just don't get rekt like philly
People, relax! It's fun time, what can be better than the playoffs? Only a playoffs with a new opponent! Looking forward to see what they ice, should be fun i'm not worried and it's not because i'm confident or conversely gave up, but because my life has been **** last few weeks and i'm happy there is something that can put my mind away for time being. So let's enjoy this time, my fellow caps fans
As you should. The regular season is over
Well, I would prefer a 5-0 loss than an double OT loss. It's not that heartbreaking.
Fellow Caps fans, it's time to assume the position:
I would absolutely, 100% feel better going into game 2 after a double OT loss instead of 5-0 drubbing.
It's old hat by now to get geared up about them one way or another. Let's see what they're made of.
I expect suffering and hope for joy.
anyone who is optimistic, check yo self
I expect nothing more than the usual. Typically they would fight tooth and nail and not at their best to a first round win. The step up their game for round 2 and find some painful way to lose. I expect them to beat Columbus.
I am , but I have an excuse for that, see my early post
I think they watched how the Pens spanked Filthadephia and the Caps will be energized to imitate.
Or, our pass to shot attempt ratio is 1000 to 1.
Sad thread is sad.
3-2 good guys!
Me every fall: "This team is a farce, they will fool you and break your heart. I will not fall for their schtick, I'll watch but I'll be detached and realistic about them."
Me every spring:
Hoping for the best but always expecting this:
I am feeling it this year. We are trending up peaking at the right time. Ovi Nick Kuz even Oshie are making noise.
Suddenly a seasons worth of deceitful sandbagged advanced stats have turned so strongly in our favor, that Orpik is no longer THE hands down worst player in the NHL. I don't know who is worse, but whatever.
I have been down on playoff holts for 3 years and welcome new blood. That tells me Barry is thinking outside the box, which he desperately needs to do, to make this year different than the 19 seasons before it. Will he be tactical anytime before game 4 this year? I think he will.
Without even trying we took first place. Give me a breathalyzer, *****!
RH is sounding positive. Hope? I like it.
Here's to seeing this on my TV screen multiple times (well, with CBJ instead of NYR):
Appears Greenberg in the WaPo is going with Columbus
Its not that far out of the box. Is it? One guy was the best goalie in the league the second half and the other guy cant keep 3 goals out of his net every game. Seems pretty much in the box to go the route he did
