How did Kuzy miss that one?
They were good enough to outclass us. I think most prognosticators would pick Boston over us, I know Mike Kelly did.
All good is quite a stretch.
So back to mediocrity I guess.
Well we're back to playing a bad team tomorrow.
At least 8 got another.
Not sure what this team does well.
Well, that was a microcosm of Kuzy’s game in general. Inconsistent, undependable . We caught lighting in a bottle in 2018, will always be thankful for that.
Vrana was floating all game
Carr over Sprong was a mistake
Dillon is a pilon.
Inexplicable that during the 4v4 Laviolette played Dowd and Hagelin and didn’t give a single shift to Kuznetsov or Vrana.
Trending down against the playoffs opponents + Rags, make me nervous come to the playoffs. At least we know who they are. Hopefully they'll surprise us.
Glad this is happening ore deadline. This isn’t good enough.
The Pens beat the Rangers after getting stomped by them the other night
Every team has there slump, we are in ours. We have time. We know this team can play well.
Grade A, hot, dogcrap. No excuse for that crapshow...
At least Ovie scored a goal. Up to 1313 points.
I don’t think Sammy played all that well tonight. Then again same was true for most of team. Looked like Kuz missed a tap-in toward the end.
Not a good night for us, with Pens, Isles and B’s all earning 2pts
Don’t count on BMac doing much. He has put himself into a box.
I would ride Vanicek for a while
Well, not to mention he literally kicked the puck to him. Bang-bang play, but yeah, Z was another Cap who was noticeably unimpressive tonight
Unfortunately, you are right. He handed out 4 year deals like they were candy on Halloween.
He needs to shake this thing up.
I agree but the stats show that throughout the season, the Capitals get less shots on goal but more xG’s. Again, I don’t think they’ve played great lately but overall I think they’re in an ok spot.
not good bob
Not even nervous myself. Just extremely low expectations
Probably not a big difference maker either way, but i really don’t understand plugging Carr in for Sprong tonight
I think they were finishing at a very high rate for a stretch, not necessarily getting better opportunities. At least to my naked eye watching them. As expected that has evened out and there’s not a lot left except for teams to skate circles around them. I don’t think I remember a Caps team (and I’ve been watching since about 1979) get beaten one on one quite as much. We’re making a lot of opponents look like Mario.
