    Ovi's wife should come back to DC ASAP. He is played very poorly at the moment. I realize he is 35 years old and all but my gosh... With this rate he is not even going to score 20+ goals...

    I'm sure Ashooh and Alexa will grow into their roles. I dont remember what Carlin was like when he first started, but its still really early for them.

    When the ice is getting tilted against you, it rarely looks like you are putting in a complete effort.

    Literally every single fan base rips their team for "not playing the full 60 minutes".

    The game has ebbs and flows.

    Have you noticed that his assists to goals ratio has changed? What he is doing has changed as a result of how he is being defended. Did you see him positioned on the power play in the left wing corner below the goal line tonight? He cant shoot from there. They are doing that for a reason

    Hate to see Sprong seemingly working out for you guys, but hopefully Lavi gives him the chance to be an NHLer. I think he has enough skill to be a Pirri type player.

    It’s weird that the Capitals have blown a lot of leads in the third this year and also that their best even strength players don’t get much ice time in the third period when they are leading.

    Must be completely unrelated.

    For what it’s worth I thought a benching was in order tonight but maybe play your best players other nights when they aren’t benched

    You hear analysts like Alan May and coaches say "don't sit back when you have the lead, keep controlling the middle of the ice and keep the other team on their heels." But when you start icing your defensive zone players constantly and stop sending the players who can actually control play and attack the other team, people act surprised that your team is on the defensive for prolonged periods.

    its because it’s hockey speak among players and coaches all the time.....fans expect it when it’s so often used.

    you are right. So a good coach takes away the most important thing from player... ice time. If they give a shit they respond. Feels like it is trending in right direction. But he won’t be a trusted 2-way player for a while.

    Surrendering a 3 goal lead is somewhat concerning. Hopefully getting that out of the way now instead of the playoffs (granted we make it) we’ve allowed 3 or more goals in the third period 3 times this season and have been 1-2-0 both losses coming against playoff teams

    Could be that they were looking ahead to the Flyer game after racing out to a 4-1 lead. The Devils are a team that can surprise you.

    Hopefully it is a good wake up call.

    That’s what Boston gets for invading our division. Them and Buffalo. Now they are discovering what a real division is like. Lol.

    Kind of like this:

    Well someone needs to light a fire under his ass, so I guess that's the same thing, right?

    I think this has more to do with coaching than anything. He is passing away shooting opps a lot more than usual. His assist to goal ratio is way up. Did you see how far out of the play it was set up on the pp?

    He is getting clean chances. I am not worried about him

    It's especially frustrating when the 1st and 4th lines have awful shifts and don't get the same treatment. Which has happened A LOT this year.
