This is the way...
2 point night! Needed that!
That shouldn't have been so stressful.
Take the points, hit the showers
Really nice of the Caps to concede to let Jake have the GWG
Super unimpressive win but the 2 points are most welcome.
Islanders 0 points. Back tied (but we own tiebreaker) for first place.
Get Sabres again in a few games. Good times.
yes they were quite offensive...
More of the same from this team. Some good and some bad but not the type of game that’s good enough to consistently win in the playoffs.
1 goal games is our specialty
I feel like we have said, "get the points and get the hell out of here" all season long.
So for what its worth, 8-92-43 was out there 5 on 6 in the last few mins when Sabers scored the ENG, but that was 100% on the defense. Lazy clear by JC, didn't tie up his man by Orlov. Still indicated some trust for 92 late. Progress.
Vrana still wasn't very impressive. Was pretty much invisible. On the goal he waited for someone to feed him the puck.
Buffalo didn't score an empty net goal.
I agree he wasn’t impressive for most of the game.
But part of his job is to get open and wait for people to feed him the puck. That was a good play.
Seems like i saw 4-2 a few times as well as 9-74. But then on Sabres third goal it was 4-74. I’d like to see the pairs changed for a whole game.
But we need more out of him. We need him to help defensively. We need him to forecheck. We need him to accidentally hit someone. He might be the biggest floater in the league.
He is up there with Kutcherov, Panarin and Kane except those guys are alot better offensively.
How about 34 instead of 33
I’d like to see Seiges in. That doesn’t seem to be an option Lavi wants though. Even when he got a sweater he played like 19 seconds (last shift of game). At least TVR got a few shifts through the game. not sure what to make of that.
They don't look like a playoff winner right now, but their 5v5 offense is excellent relative to the rest of the league, which is important for the post-season, and Lavi has an excellent record in the playoffs. So I'm not despairing yet.
Tom Wilson made some nice plays but I think he played smarter last year. That offside could have been avoided if he made an effort to walk the blue line.
If Seigenthaler was in the lineup he might be our best shutdown guy.
yeah sorry, meant to say they scored the 6 on 5 when THEY had the empty net, but thanks for the correction.
Lol I sense some sarcasm. I deserved it.
