They are playing great .....

So and I going to the game on Saturday ....

 

Enjoy!

 

My brother in law gets tickets from the dealership he works for, and we are planning on going to a game soon.

Yeah, some sloppy defense,sign of a bored team.

I was there, sitting a few rows behind the glass in end where the shoot twice ......

Exciting game, 7 of the 10 goals scored less than 50 feet in front of me ......

The game winner was especially cool watching it dribble in like it was in slow motion .....

Fun night, exciting game .....

Caps aquire Shattenkirk from the Blues for Zach Sanford.  I did not see this one coming, at all.  Some people were really high on Sanford, others not so much.  Given the Caps depth with prospects, he was certainly expendable.  There's a lot of reasons for the move though, from the expansion draft to Alzner being a UFA, and mostly, selling out to win the Cup this season.  The Caps were already the top defensive team in the league, and just added one of the top defenders in the league.  Yikes.

Shattenkirk looked great in his first game as a Cap, made some great plays! 

 

Caps just dominated the Rags after the 1st, despite having Oshie, Orpik and Burakovsky out.  Definitely most impressive game after the break.  There were times it was a serious onslaught.

I haven't followed the Caps since I moved back to Baltimore. But I think I'll go out of my way to watch the Stanley Cup tournament. I suffered through years of heartbreaking defeats. And even though I stopped being an avid fan, I would love to see them hoist up the cup.

At this point, selling out to improve in the playoffs is fine by me.

Ovechkin should sit in the press box a few games.  He looks horrible.

Getting Burakovsky back was big.  Their slide was seemingly very coincidental with his departure.

 

Now two very impressive wins, and they are back to their former high level, just in time.

Riding a five game win streak now :D

 

Last night's game was a huge win, and overcoming a crazy lucky goal, and a goal that tied the game that the ref's should have clearly overturned.  In fact, you have to even wonder why replay exists when they couldn't see how very clearly offsides the Wild player was on that goal.  There is no way they could have been looking at that and thought that it was onsides.  He was at least a foot, maybe two offsides.

 

Anyway, Ovi getting a hat trick, and Oshie getting the other two, the Caps are back to having the gas on the pedal.  Going to need it, CBJ is right on their heels.

Didn't see the whole game.  Hard hitting between the Wild player getting hit with the high stick and Wilson getting bloodied in the payback fight.

Wilson took the guy down and got in good shot, then when they were being separated the Wild player sucker punched him several times in the face. 

 

That game really pissed me off, TBH.  Very one-sided reffing, and the very, very, very obvious offsides on the game tying goal was infuriating.  My wife and I had some colorful language at that point, and then some "Up yours" language when Oshie got the game winner in OT. 

 

Some times the NHL officiating seems extremely "tainted" if you ask me.  It needs to be cleaned up for sure.

Hell yeah! Really needed that one after the blooper reel game against the Yotes.
