Now we can sit back and watch the Pens/Bruins/Sens fight for that last spot :D 

 

Of course the Pens have the easy matchup, but they've lost five straight, and badly, so who knows?

Go Caps!

Teams in the SC only go as far as their net minder takes them.

Not looking good.  Islanders so much more aggressive towards the puck.

This team doesn't cut it. I was encouraged by that last stretch but they aren't getting out of this round.

Not looking good.  They look nervous, tentative, and with the stink of the pressure of playoff failures past hanging over them like a storm cloud.

If they go on to win this series, that will be marked as the turning point. 

 

The game started with more of the same, tentative, sloppy play, unsure, and uptight.  Then Down 2-0, it seemed like they just said f***-it, and went back to playing the physical, heavy game that they've learned under Trotz.  The Isles got a break on a sloppy play and got it back up 3-1, but you could see that the Caps were really taking it to them at that point, I had no doubt they would come back when they answered to make it 3-2.  Ovie was *huge* in this game, as was Backstrom.  They might not win the series(but I think they will), but at least it's not like years past where one setback winds up being a 4-0 sweep.

No doubt the turning point if they move on ......

Middle of the second period game and hopefully series turned.....

Good to get Ovi and Backstrum back on the same line, hope it stays that way ....

I was traveling all week and missed that debacle in game 1 .....

Didn't look good last night for the first 25 minutes or so but what a great finish

Caps were back to their putrid selves today. Good god. When NYI aren't turtling the caps cannot do anything. What an embarrassing OT period.

I don't think OT lasted long enough to be embarrassing.   ;)

This.

 

Not a good game by the Caps.  Looked more like the first game and a half.

Man that was a great game and win!  Caps had much more energy in this one, and completely dominated OT.  Sweet shot by Nick to win it!

Much better overtime this time around.

 

I was definitely worried when NY scored at the very end of the 1st period.  Luckily it didn't pan out.

That was a total beatdown.  Isles look completely worn out.  I still think this goes to game 7 though.
