    Agree. While Backstrom is super smart, you pair that with his conditioning and (i think confidence to score has come with that), he is aging very well. I’m less concerned about his contract if he can stay in good health.

    I never watch the post game show, but I missed the 2nd period so I wanted to see the goals I missed, half an hour they don’t show the goals, WTF

    Backstrom remains hot. Ovi is now hot. If we can somehow get Kuzy hot, this team is going to be a mutherf***er to play against. All that skill plus Chara, Dillon, Willy, Hath bringing the hits, and Orly, Shultzy and Jensen moving the pucks out of the zone, I like this team.

    Crazy how playing Kuznetsov in the third period instead of benching him leads to shutting down the other team by keeping the puck in the other team's zone.

    Also this is where I say that Kuznetsov has been playing this well pretty much all season, except now he is getting points.

    What is that, 6-0 on Wilson's suspension? Suck it, league office.

    Amazing how actual goals and assists contribute to a good record...

    On another note, the discipline shown by Panik and others by not retaliating on Mayfield led to a PP and Backstrom's goal.

    Tom Wilson should take some notes on not allowing goons from the other team to goad him into a sideshow that will put the team at a disadvantage.

    Stats like these are always misleading. Basically every player is going to have a great record when they record a point, because of selection bias. All it's basically saying is that "The Capitals do well when their players do a good thing"

    They survived a lop-sided first period thanks to Samsonov, and took control from there. Glad the patience with the netminders is panning out. Both of the young goalies are finding their groove.

    The Capitals are 1276-0 when they outscore the opposition.

    Its a pretty remarkable streak really, kinda unprecedented.

    The calm puck control in tight spaces with players seemingly within reach of him. He just pulls the puck back 6 inches and then passes.

    I'm really invested in the consecutive 30 goal season streak. Getting it done despite two shortened seasons might make it one of the most impressive records in the game.

    Nice win, btw.

    You will probably not get full credit for your position until after you die (hopefully in 75 years or so) but at your eulogy I will stand up and say "Twabby was right all along".

    Just feels good to win. Feels like we take it for granted all the winning in the regular season over the past 10+ years. It rules

    Ovechkin scoring, Caps winning. Never gets old. Enjoy it while it’s still here!

    Who sits after Wilson comes back? We need to let Sprong ride this heater out, developing him could be massive for keeping the team more competitive than it has any business being in the coming years.

    I’d say a rotation of Sprong/Sheary/Panik? Maybe even Hathaway or Hagelin. Give guys a game off, rotate them in. Lots of hockey in a short period of time so some rest would be in order.

    but honestly it could be Eller sitting if he’s still injured. Then we are looking at Oshie at C again most likely.

    I think it is less about who sits and more about who earns playing time. Someone has to sit so fight to stay in the lineup. I doubt we do anything to break up fourth line unless they go downhill quick. We count on that line to do the dirty (or as my Indian friends say, “do the needful”.

    Panik drew two penalties.

    Didn’t get any points so obviously he played poorly. :sarcasm:

    Needs 18 goals in 27 games. Definitely not out the realm of possibility.

    He needs to start scoring multiple goals (including hattricks) to continue the streak. Amazingly, Ovi scored more than one goal only once thus far.

    Let’s say he goes on a 10 goals in 10 game run. 3 two goal games and 4 one goal games in a ten game span would do it.

    That’d leave him 17 games to score 8 goals. Two two goal games and 4 one goal games would do that.

    So, 5 two goal games and 8 one goal games. He’d only need to score in 13 of the 27 remaining games.

    I'd go and trade Siege for a good forward at the trade deadline but we are set for playoffs.

    Ovechkin-Kuznetsov-Wilson
    Vrana-Backstrom-Sprong
    Panik/Sheary-Eller-Oshie
    Hagelin-Dowd-Hathaway

    Dillon-Carlson
    Orlov-Schiltz
    Chara-Jensen
    TVR

    Samsonov
    Vanacek
