Re: Stanley Cup Playoffs 2010

Theo wasn't yanked game 1, he started and played the entire game 1 and we lost in OT. After a game two start and two shots on and two goals later he was yanked, just as he should have been. Varly came in to relieve in game 2 and we came back to win.

Game 7 who knows what direction Gabby goes.

We need to attack the net, stay in the crease and play grind it out hockey. Stop aiming the puck for small areas in the net and just pepper the shit outta halak and capitalize on the rebounds (keep there asses planted in his face/the crease) and get some dirty goals.

We will get this thing, we won't loss three straight!

GO CAPS!!!!!

i would also start theo, i wouldnt have switched goalies half way thru game 1 either but thats bruce's call and hes been making pretty good ones so far.

id just like to welcome all the new (i wont call ya bandwagon) caps fans they have gained over the past few years, playoff hockey actually kinda sorta looks like how hockey is supposed to look. you know, pre-1998 rule changes to compliment the russian speedsters like pavel bure, teammu selanne and make hockey more exciting for americans.

you crash the net, you back check your ass off and dont take stupid penalties.

Re: Stanley Cup Playoffs 2010

Interesting, not sure how much I believe that alone, but I'm sure it could have something to do with it.

Hell, it's unheard of for an owner to even monitor those situations or comment on them, nice to see that he has a clear oversight on pretty much all aspects of the team.

Re: Stanley Cup Playoffs 2010

Personally I have as good of a feeling as you can have going into this situation. No way we let our season end here. If anything though watching anything to do with hockey over the last few days has been painful, except ironically the prospect of playing hockey.

I know what you mean about the bandwagon fans. I've been playing hockey for close to 17 years. I played for UMD, and grew up in Frederick playing for the Phantoms turned Fury. It's tough to see all of these people who act like they've been caps fans and have followed the team forever. But, hey - at least they can't say our fanbase is weak anymore...haha.

Its bound to happen when a team gets good...you know?
damn thats sweet you got to play hockey for so long. i played when i was young then about 14 stopped playing. luckily i was able to play college lax.

back in teh day we had caps season tickets from the mid 80s to mid 90s. saw every freakin game they played, got to go back in the locker room. they would send us all-paid to see playoff games.

shoot, the caps gave me and my brother official official caps equipment. each set probably cost thousands upon thousands of dollars. now that i think about it, that might have been when they were still wearing the red white and blue but switched to that god awful blue and gold.

don beaupre goalie sticks, lou fransecitti sticks, langway, bondra, bobby gould, etc..

it was a different time back then, when hockey players were nothing more than guys who played hockey.

JLW you remember LOUUUUUUUUUUU! he was the man.

i do find it hard to root for the caps now thoo, dont know why, maybe subconciously i do hold something against this new breed of caps fans who dont know ridley, miller, pivonka, gustafson, murphy, langway, dino, sheehy, john trip over the blue line druce, sally johanson, bob mason, pete peeters, etc.... its weird, i should be happy that the caps are now the pens of the 90's with their high scoring offense. so many years of blue collar scrap it out hockey got replaced by 4 on 4s and rules enforced to open the ice.

Re: Stanley Cup Playoffs 2010

They may not be done yet but this team is nowhere near a championship caliber team. Uuuf. 2001 Mariners anyone?

No doubt. Spotty goaltending and poor defense won't win you a Stanley Cup. We're a defenseman or three away from being a real contender (I don't care what our regular season record says). You can't half-ass it for a period or two and then suddenly decide you're going to try to outscore everyone. That doesn't work in the playoffs, and we're finding that out.

It certainly doesn't help us that Poti will be out tonight after taking that puck to the face on Monday.

Re: Stanley Cup Playoffs 2010

Not sure I agree with this.

Capitals Insider - Varlamov appears set to start

definitely

just like in any sport stopping the other team is a huge part of it, shootouts (not the overtime variety) are no way to take home a championship

hopefully Alzner can help us out tonight
