Re: Official Capitals vs Flyers Playoff Thread

What a great game. Caught from about 5 minutes left in the 2nd period on (did see Brashear's goal early on), and Ovie's robbery and goal was awesome. But Greenie was on fire last night.

The big stat of the night to me is the Caps taking 12 shots on goal (scoring 3) vs. the Flyers taking 3. Not only did the Caps offense step up, their defense really put the screws to the Flyers. Should be a great game 2.

Re: Official Capitals vs Flyers Playoff Thread

Where oh where is 8858's mouth? This team showed so much heart last night. To fight the way they fought, to score 3 unanswered in the final period, Ovie's INSANE game winner...

If there was any question who the best player in the league was... if there was any question on whether he could step it up in the bright lights of the playoffs... shhhhhh

Right here is my mouth, what do I care, the PENS are up 2 games, and totally dominating the senators just like they will the entire playoffs. Sure the caps won, good for them but remember it is the best out of 7...

Re: Official Capitals vs Flyers Playoff Thread

Pens are dominating?? They let the Senators back into the 2nd game in the 3rd period and give them a tough time. Domination is an overstatement.

Let's see, after 2 game:

TOTAL GOALS
Pens - 9
Senators - 3

TOTAL SHOTS ON GOAL
Pens - 89
Senators - 56

So, yes that is total domination. If you want to see what it is like to totally dominate a game, don't be afraid to tune in Monday night @ 7 as the PENS skate on to win game 3...

Great stats, and you guys did dominate game one but I did watch the closing minutes of the third period game 2, and it was NOT domination. Those numbers you cited include game one, and while shots alone are a cute little stat they do not determine the outcome of the game.

The Pens let the Senators back into the game, period.

Malone scored Pittsburgh’s third power-play goal with only 1:02 remaining and the Penguins squandered a three-goal lead...


I am not saying the Pens will lose the series. But don't sit here and say game 2 was easy for the Pens. It was not.

Re: Official Capitals vs Flyers Playoff Thread

Yeah I was watching Game 2 from early in the second quarter and they did not dominate. Ottawa didn't score 3 goals on accident, the Pens let them back into the game. Yes the Pens stepped up when it mattered and scored to put them ahead for good but Ottawa had started to regain a little momentum. Domination is when you have the game in hand for the entire 60 minutes and that was definitely not the case in game 2.

i'd say, the refs stepped up when it mattered. heck the refs put the sens in the box for 16 min. while only putting the pens in the box for 8 min. 3 of the pens 5 goals were powerplay goals and 1 was a empty net goal. the pens did not dominate the game at all, the refs did.

Well, in all fairness, the refs don't dominate anything. If teams dont commit penalties, the refs wont put them in the box. Its not the refs job not to hook, or slash or anything. If the Senators dont make penalties, they dont let the Penguins score power play goals. I mean look at the Capitals go ahead goal on Friday, they were essencially on the power play since one of the Flyers was just laying on the ice for 10 seconds. I mean I'm rooting hard for both Pittsburgh and Washington in the series, but you can't put anything on the refs. Pittsburgh outplayed Ottawa, straight simple.

your crazy, refs can and do dominate games all the time. furtermore a refs domination can affect the outcome of a game. penalties happen all the time, it's when and where the refs choose to call them.

Yeah, I'm crazy. Did you watch the Ottawa Pittsburgh Friday night? Pittsburgh did dominate that game. They got lazy in the second and allowed Ottawa to sneak back into the game, and then regrouped and scored two goals. It dosent matter if its on a power play, or not. Thats part of hockey, if you commit a penalty, thats your own fault. Where did the refs call a penalty that shouldnt have been called against Ottawa? Where did they miss a call against Pittsburgh?

I mean hell, Ottawa was 0 for like 6 or 7 on Wensday, they didnt cash in. Pittsburgh is cashing in on their power play chances. Thats really the difference in the series right now. Maybe I'm just mis interpreting what you're saying, but there is no way the refs are who are responsible for Ottawa being in a 2-0 hole right now.

Tough loss for the Capitals today. Flyers got what they wanted, a split heading home. Capitals have been riding a hot streak for a while now (all luck of course), now let's see how they respond on Tuesday.

Re: Official Capitals vs Flyers Playoff Thread

Yeah the Caps definitely have some work to do, they got outplayed the entire game pretty much. Philly seems to have their number right now and Boudreau is gonna have to find some ways to change what he's doing because what we're doing right now isn't working.
