This game was an abomination from the moment this thread was created! Lol....
We are the kings of piling up points against teams of no note
That ice is a dumpster fire right now. So many bouncing pucks or shit bounces.
I mean the Caps dominated both this games this weekend. Won one, lost the other against a good team. If anything, how they played this weekend was a big improvement. I think they were a combined 70% or so in xG% on the weekend. Cant get much better than that.
Now 3 games in a row vs NYI... Lavi better have some words after this one
Let Sammy play all 3 and lets see if he can be playoff #1
New toy scored a goal again, NYR chances are getting slimmer, and we get true test coming up with remaining schedule. Rest up caps, you'll need it. No more bottom feeder teams left.
THIs teams goalies are pathetic
We lost this one, and Bruins have had the best of us lately (if you dont count that game where they played with Providence team). But im not that worried meeting them in playoffs.. they depend for their first line more than anyone, and their D is not strong.
we missed Chara and its clear we need him on the lineup. He has fastly become so important.
Rask took 4-5 big saves on the third, could have gone either way.
third game for short time.
This has always been true of Cap One Arena. Welcome to 2021 lol.
Time to ride with Sammy until he doesn't win. Vitek good for 4+ a game lately. Don't want to hear about defense, good goalies make big saves. Samsonov finds ways to win and get 2 points.
I'm getting flashbacks of the Bruce era. No defense. No goalie. Great offense.
can someone remind me why of all things we traded for a forward at the deadline?
I was low key hoping for a OT loss but if these teams meet in the playoffs it would be a bloodbath
I had this thought this morning. Yikes.
Today Carlson looked either drunk or concussed, possibly both.
Great game. Rask was the difference. Bruins are missing 3 of their top 4 D. With the addition of Hall, the second line (with Krecji and Craig Smith) should be much better, I think it's Washington and Boston in this division. Looking forward to getting our D healthy.
Mate I think I made it pretty obvious that my main problem with them is goalies. What does xG% have to do with that?
atleast the Sabres are beating the Pens lol
That's just Laviolette hockey for you. The Flyers were mostly the same way when he was our coach.
That's how one of the former Lavi team fanbases described him, but I don't remember which one. Maybe NSH.
In Lavi's defense though, 5v5 scoring is a huge component of successful playoff hockey.
You do get that feeling that first place is about to slip away.
Guess we’ll see how those Isles games play out.
They better get their shit square or they will be lucky to make the playoffs.
Dillon had a really good game today.
Carlson though ... woof.
