2018 - 19 Stanley Cup Champion Washington Capitals Thread

Recommended Posts

My bad guys, after the sloppy clear attempt with 1 minute left and they kept it in, I said "they are scoring before the period ends" and then 30 seconds later they did.

Dammit! Why can't DC teams stop teams from scoring before halftime/intermission?

Lack of focus which we’ve honestly lacked since our big lead in game 1.  We go from high intensity focus to heads in the cloud

Too many people watching the puck instead of watching their man. Why is Orpik standing near the point just watching?

The Caps aren't some DC team. They actually won a championship.

That goal was on Ovechkin, Burakovsky and Orpik. Ovi was gliding to the bench which didn't get Bura on the ice quickly. Bura needs to see the guy right beside him and be skating hard back on defense knowing the puck is in the defensive zone. Orpik and the D guys getting bunched leaving the center of the ice open was also a problem.

Kuzy has been about as productive as DSP this year.

The Caps need to come out with the same intensity they had that last period. They had taken the crowd completely out of the game. But when they scored, the crowd was louder than any crowd I’ve ever heard. We are sitting down low and I couldn’t hear anything. If they come out and get a goal, the crowd will go back to bringing silent. Most fans sitting around us were scared to death most of that period.

We look like the better team tonight and the numbers bear it out.

 

I like the effort.

 

Secondary scoring has to show up or Carolina is gonna win this series. It can't just be Ovechkin and Backstrom.

IMO, if they don't pull this one out tonight, it's going to be a 7 game series.  Both teams are completely different at home

How true, the Capitals need Kuzy to step up, and this third period would be a perfect time to

The effort is just lacking so hard right now.  Such lazy ass passes that keep getting nothing and then lazy ass entries.  Then nonchalant on defense.  Very frustrating to watch.

Carolina found the only game plan that slows the Caps down. We always struggle against the neutral zone trap.

72 is absolutely worthless on the 4th line. Scratch him for DSP next game. Go back to what worked last year.
