    Nothing he could do on that shot, you should be commenting on whoever lost the faceoff clean to set up a heavily screened shot.

    I RARELY say this but that was a lay your **** on the table performance tonight by the Capitals in every facet. PK, PP, even strength. Every line did its job and man Chandler Stephenson, welcome to the second line. He may've played his best game as a Capital tonight - was great defensively. When you eliminate the AHL-level odd man rushes from this CBJ all of a sudden their offensive firepower isn't that scary. Now, this is just one game, we're only halfway there but a very encouraging performance. Keep Stephenson on that second line, he was better than Burakovsky on both ends of the ice. Doesn't have the top end skill but way better defensively and was working in the offensive end just making smart plays.

    I cannot wait until Trotz is gone. I really can't at this point.

    Also if Jay Beagle is out this series, we are in TROUBLE. We could not win a face off to save our lives in the third. Lost the last 8 in the D-zone.

    I feel any talk of the Penguins domination over us has to include the 90s also to truly measure the gravity of the domination. Also where was Ovechkin? There's an APB out.

    The Penguins have already won 5. You're forgetting the two Cups Lemieux and Jagr won going through the Capitals.

    Orpik is garbage. I cannot wait till he never plays for us again. Vrana needs WAY more playing time, and I still don't get why they hate Connolly so much. One silver lining is a first round exit means Trotz gets fired and maybe we hire a coach that actually knows what Round 3 feels like.

    Burakovsky is such a disappointment. Underwhelming first round pick.

    Have been saying all year, the key to getting over the hump is not #8 it's #92. He's a more explosive Backstrom and the closest thing we have to Malkin.
  10. The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    So embarrassing to watch. Everything to play for against a team with nothing to play for and you lose. Meanwhile their Verizon Center neighbors clinch the division and then with nothing to play for, beat a St. Louis team that was so desperate for a win to get into the playoffs. That's the difference between the two organizations. Accepted a R2 plateau for no reason at all.

    Honestly if they get waxed by Toronto, I won't feel bad and I hope it stings. This roster is so full of itself for a franchise that has not won 50 games since the disco era. You have a hobbled Boston team waiting to be defeated, that you just beat. And you don't go for the 7th seed. I'm not going to go on hot take mode on coaches and specific players, but they lost to a team that was trying to lose when they had a PERFECT matchup waiting in round 1. The makeup of this team is just...not proud of this group. Best case scenario is now getting swept by Cleveland in round 2. Not that interested in their playoff run at this point, I wanted hope of an ECF like last year but that's eroded.

    YESSSS. I honestly am 10x more excited with Grubauer starting. I know what I get with Holtby and that's evisceration when we play Pittsburgh. So much more excited now.
  13. 2017 - 18 Washington Capitals Thread

    Would REALLY be great if Philadelphia could eliminate Pittsburgh. Of course, we have our hands full with Columbus. In Grubauer I trust. In Holtby I do not.

    He's also a should-be 2x Conn Smythe Trophy winner : /

    Grubauer gives me hope because Holtby can't stop a beach ball vs. PITT. Grubauer has to get the start R1G1 - it's literally unacceptable otherwise.
