Panik scored too. Good for Vrana. I will always root for that kid.
I think he is. It's his mental strength that bothers me. Need to see him more before playoffs started.
Wasn’t a brag at all, but you got it dude
There were several plays where Wilson actively avoid checking players against the wall. Come playoff time, I assume Wilson will be let off the leash a bit to resume hitting people.
You probably right. I just hope he doesn't start it the very first game, need to give time for refs to adapt for a faster pace and better hitting game.
yea...went back and watched it. Ov had some leg thing happen.
I love the two point night. Unfortunately only +1 against the Isles. Playoffs start with these last 10 games.
How was that awful? It was a very entertaining game. Both teams played well and the goalies were fantastic.
I saw 1 goal in two full games AND an overtime that was just hideous.
Ugh...a win but in the Bettmanout.
Playing the Trotz turtle is super boring. Zzzzzzz....
Hope Ovie is ok.
Nice game from the team defensively. No cheapies, and when there were breakdowns Samsonov was great.
I thought they generated some great chances too, just couldn’t convert.
It was rather low impact in terms of hatred between the two teams battling for the division lead and beyond that largely uneventful. The goaltenders were good but aside from a few moments neither had to be all that great. It was mostly a defensive battle. NYI are so much more dangerous in transition, though. I pine for the days when the Caps had more of that element in them at will.
Raffl had a solid debut. He's always going to bring solid energy and he turns the third-line more of a territorial line. I do wonder if there's any production in him and, if not, whether mucking/checking is enough. The bottom two lines work hard but beyond maybe some ugly ones now and then I don't know if they'll produce much. I'm sure they'll like how they won tonight and how Samsonov was able to hold the fort. That said, more pace and crisp passing are a must.
The 3 on 3 was and is a joke. The rest of the game was played very well. I love these types of games. Had a playoff atmosphere. It was intense game.
The goaltending was great. I was on the edge of my seat the entire game.
Except the 3 on 3. I despise 3 on 3.
There was no turtle by either team today.
Maybe you should refrain from using the term turtle until you learn the meaning.
rofl.. that was a hideous game. Not because the caps... because the Isles are a terrible team... unless they clutch and grab the entire game. Even in the 3v3... they dare not risk a shot because it'd be game over for them the other way.
It's a shit way to play hockey and quite embarrassing.
That terrible team beat us in 5 games...
I was going to read the Isles GDT but can’t even see it
ugh, please be ok ovie. Would rather give up the points and have a healthy 8
They just skated it back out of the offensive zone again to get another line change.
The Islanders are a terrible team? When the night started they had the exact same record as us. Does that make us terrible too.
I don't think you understand the concept of team.
I remember when the Isles traded for palmieri and zajac and people thought that would put them over the edge. I said it then and I believe it now...those players don’t scare me.
He carried the puck at speed out of the d zone and stopped skating before the redline. He pushed the puck forward and turned to the bench. I didnt see him take another stride after he pulled up
Yea... I dont think you read my post about the clutch and grab... without it, they're a bottom tier team.
It takes alot to keep that man out of a game
