now thats just silly, theyve won his last 4 of his last 5 starts
But people don't need to be this negative. Its a bad game. Its happens to every team.
Holtby was fine tonight. He didn't lose this game for us.
Whats grubauer status healthwise? I hope whatever he tweaked a couple games ago doesnt turn into lingering nagging thing which limits him in playoffs. I think he gives us better chance than 70 right now
lets not forget they are 10-2 in last 12 games
I remember when Holtby’s best games were more than just fine.
Just a bad game, but what a miserable one to watch...
He didn't exactly win it either.
I don't. I think Holtby is the guy.
What did you want him to do? He made some very good saves in this game. The team didn't play well in front if him. Unless you think Holtby should have scored a goal or 2.
This isn't the same team in front of him.
Holtby has been exposed. He isn’t as good as he has appeared the last two seasons, nor is he as bad as people claim he is. Somewhere in between.
Sometimes you need your goalie to steal you a game. I'm not mad he didn't, but it sure would be nice if he could demonstrate that level again. I mean, when was the last time?
Respectfully, I think Holtby's game is screaming that he is not the guy.
I would love to be wrong, because there are elements of Gruby's game that terrify me. But Holtby remains a fugging mess
Well he did his job. The game should have been worse. Could have easily been 6 or 7 goals against.
And offensively how many quality scoring chances did we get. We might not have had 5. Even the goal we scored wasn't really a great scoring chance.
I think our best chance to do anything in the playoffs is with Holtby. We need him to get back on his game in a hurry. If we are relying on Grubauer, we are done.
Wonderful, for 6M bux. True re the team in front of him.
Another truth: Scott Darling, Scott mutha you know what DARLING outplayed BH
The lose is no big deal, they can’t win every game.
I was bored so I went to the game and all I can say is DSP, while I know he made that nice pass to Vrana, should not be playing. He is sooooo slow. He is two steps behind everyone else. Let Gersich get a game with Lars or Nick, sit DSP, bump useless Burka down, but get the speediest lineup in for a game or two.
The Caps are gonna get destroyed in round one if they play slow guys and Eller with DSP is a really really slow line.
Here’s hoping Oshie is ok. It had to be the hit along the boards in the second period.
Good thing we have the internet... o/w finding that could take some time
Holtby almost drowned this team with his little '3 goals on 9 shots' era. Grubi put the team on his back and should be in net for the playoffs. Hopefully he'll be healthy by then because if they put Holthree in there...
If you think Darling outplayed Holtby then all you are looking at is the final score. Darling wasn't tested at all. He didn't make ant spectacular saves. And he probably should have stopped the one that got by him. Darling did not out play Holtby. The Canes outplayed the Caps.
and who was saving the caps when grubauer was stinking it up in the first half? why holtby of course
