7:00 start time
Kuzy -2, Ovie 2 ppg, Caps win 6-1.
Wait, Kuzy 2 goals, or Kuzy minus 2?
Official Kuznetsov prediction: 3 secondary assists on the PP, 10 angry looks at the referee, 0 calories burnt in the defensive zone
Time for Kuz to change his chewing gum
Monster game from Ovenchicken and 2pts. I don't care what else happens.
Nice choice of theme for this one. All we gotta do is keep flying this thing straight.... the destination is in sight.
Kuzy will sit whole game, and they will sent him AHL to bring DSP who's hot now.
looks like Holtby in net again tonight. Hmmm. This would seem to be the game to let Copley start. Guess he won't in Tampa either. Starting to worry about Holtby's fatigue factor a bit going into the playoffs.
How about a hat trick from 8?
He just sat a game on Sunday. I imagine Holtby will play tonight and Saturday and then Copley will play next Tuesday against the Devils.
He needs to put some more distance between himself and these pretenders on his tail.
Kuzy 8 months ago was unbelievable with amazing stats, helped Caps win a Cup, had arguably most exciting goal is Caps history when it eliminated the Pens, Caps have won 7 of 8 currently, and fans here are mad at him.
What he does now isn’t super important. A month from now is the important time for Kuzy.
Hoping General Orlov isn't making pizzas tonight.
This bears further discussion, AFTER the playoffs.
Tuesday's gaffe was egregious and deserved a stern talking to by Batya/Ovie/coaches/Holtby. I'm confident that happened because of the locker room culture this team has. It's over now. Next.
Anyone catch ESPNs power rankings? It's obvious enough that they are clueless but it's slightly comical to see Winnipeg in front of us, given that they have only won 4 of their last 10, sit 5 points behind us and we just beat them 3-1.. Hilarious.
Speaking of DSP....
Joe B was on the junks this am and all but said his demotion/waiver was due to ‘tude.
Regardless of how many points he’s put up so far, or going forward in the A, he’d better get that corrected if he wants to be a part of the team come playoffs.
At this point, there's only one slot that may be open to rotation and thats Boyd. No taking Hags or Burky out at this point, so DSP needs to show he's more valuable than Boyd, or he'll be a spectator.
I think we all agree, but it would be nice to see a long slow steady turning on of the Kuz GAS* switch, starting maybe last week, instead of waiting to the last minute.
*GAS = Kuzy's Give A **** quotient.
interesting. playoffs went to his head. hopefully riding a bus for a bit brings him down to Earth.
IINM, its not the first time he's reported to an NHL camp out of shape. He just doesn't seem to have the appetite for an NHL fitness lifestyle. Hopefully, like you say, some time in the A will help him find it.
I'll be satisfied with finding it for the next 4 months and playing with an edge. I don't think Boyd has the defensive awareness for the playoffs at this stage in his development.
Time for a multi goal game for Ovie after missing so many last game
