    Seriously... not great but damn good effort. This is a stepping stone in the right direction. It wasn't perfect. Jarry wasn't great. A few boneheaded plays... but we made it.

    Now build on it.

    2-0-0 since ZAR came back

    He also scored in both games.

    ZAR is all we needed to get back on track.

    ZAR was great, Matheson was great, Jarry got the job done and they won in regulation.

    Big win IMO.

    Slap Vladimirovich Malkin around with a dead fish for awhile maybe he'll sober up.

    I don't want to overreact with ZAR because I got super hyped with Jankowski after only 2 games, but man he looks completely different this year. He looks like an actual 3rd line winger for this team right now, to the point where I'm glad he's a RFA after the year and am glad they kept him.

    Just really surprising to see. I thought he was going to be completely toast after that shoulder surgery, but he looks better than ever.

    The caps are so bad they can’t beat the penguins, yet at the same time the Pens are so bad the Caps always make these close games! GONG

    Pretty impressed with some of our D.
    + Ceci, Ruhwedal, and matheson all were good today
    + Jake, Sid, and Rusty were phenominal
    + Tanev was a beat and the third line played really good.

    15 total points scored this game, 6 by dmen. That is a positive trend that I hope continues.

    We know who played well this game and who didn't.

    I'd like to shout out to Matheson and Ceci who I thought were great (above their normal, average play) this game. Two very solid games from them and I hope it continues.

    I thought Letang was good on defense, marginal on offense.

    Jarry was bad. Zucker was bad. Malkin was meh.

    One more to add: a 69.46% xGF%, which was the best on the team.

    He was amazing with every metric. Simple stats, eye test and analytics. All were terrific from him.
