2018 - 19 Stanley Cup Champion Washington Capitals Thread

Recommended Posts

The Caps should make the playoffs, but they have a lot of road games coming up including a dreaded west coast swing on this next brutal road trip. During this road trip, Carolina has a great opportunity to make up ground. 

 

Caps haven't had a really good game from start to finish in a month. They need to put together some good games and get some convincing, dominating wins.

I feel like the road trip is where we'll really hit our stride. That's what champions do, step up when the going gets toughest.

 

Just gotta make the playoffs, then its all a complete reset anyway.

If the Capitals win tonight against LA they will have secured 8 out of 12 possible points on this homestand

What a WEAK call. And Clifford needs to get 2 for roughing for hitting a player after the whistle. You can’t check someone after touching up for icing or a delayed penalty.

why Does this team suck so bad after we score?

 

also im so sick of Reirdens “o shucks” face every time they show him behind the bench. He looks as clueless as Jay Gruden on the sidelines.

Can't match the opposition intensity following a score? That or we take a lazy penalty.. It was silly a month ago, it's getting ridiculous now.

Not sure what game these refs are watching. 3 hooks called on Caps (I personally don’t think any were legit hooks) and they ignore blatant trips and interference.

Kuznetsov played a great game 

 

a second too late for the hatty. He has really turned it on lately. I’m thinking he was playing hurt before the break. 

 

Important game tomorrow.

Kuznetsov is really doing his thing lately, the break was good for him. He’s earning that big contract.

Every win is a good win. Gotta start giving up fewer goals. This is not a long term recipe for success.

Be nice if they could keep the stick infractions down too.

Tomorrow is an actual test. (They mocked Kuzy after last game.) We're 4 pts ahead, they have 2 games in hand..

Yep, no coincidence they won the Cup as soon as he had an extended period of dominating play during the playoffs.

When he's on and his mind is right he's almost unbeatable.   Dude has the abilities to be in the conversation of the best in the league at times.

So it only took Reirden 2/3rds of the season to get back to the line combos that won them a Stanley Cup last year.  Bravo.

Would love to get the home cooking every other team gets. Christ, the Caps are THE most penalized team at home.
