Keep pissing it away .....

Can't capitalize on a 5 on 3 and blow 2, 2 goal leads .....

Losing the lead with 30 seconds left in the period is horrible ......

3 caps down below the goal .....

Hard to believe the Caps won't bounce back. Nobody can be that consistently unlucky.

Seems like it's always something with the Caps in the playoffs. Running into a hot goalie, a talented young team, etc.

 

At some point they need to sack up and get it done.

This is starting to look like a movie I've seen before. Don't know if I have the stomach to sit through it again.

Is Ovechkin hurt? Why else play him only 15 min?

Last year during the playoffs, I remember Jeremy Roenick saying the Caps don't have the killer instinct for whatever reason to finish off opponents.  Seems to still be true.

We will see tonight ......

Just seem to be older and slower than the leafs, especially on defense .....

Season on line and perhaps on verge of most epic collapse in a franchise known for them .....

Huge win, in the face of some true BS officiating. Still though, running out of gas and hanging on instead of putting them away. Next game is pivotal, but the Caps are clearly better, they just need to play like it.
The time has come for a centrist political party. Rational Americans are not comfortable with extreme views to the left or to the right, and our current parties have no intentions of ever abandoning their ever increasing distance from sane, reasonable thinking.

Internet and cable were out so I didn't see the game.  And they won.  Could be a coincidence there...

The end to end plays with Wilson diving in his own net to stop a goal and then getting up and scoring down the other end was an incredible minute of hockey ....

Goalie interference call was bs .....

D needs to step up ......

Should be good games this weekend .....

Wilson is seriously coming of age!  He has been the best player in the playoffs, and that play was for the ages.  It's a shame they lost game 3 because Holtby's play would have ranked up there too.

 

The defense has got to do a better job of clearing the puck.  So many goals have been allowed because they just tried to slap it around the rink instead of getting a good clear.  Winds up getting to the Leafs point position, and they take advantage.  They also have not done a good job of protecting Holtby at times.  However, I wouldn't go so far as to say they've been playing bad defense.  The Leafs have been ultra-opportunistic, and damn, if the Caps for once could get some luck to bounce THEIR way that is good, rather than the tons of unlucky bounces and deflections, they could easily have blown out the Leafs in any, or all four games thus far. 

 

The Leafs played very furious and physical last night, but the Caps also showed why they are the #1 seed.  They also showed that they tend to wear down against fast, young teams, and have pretty much in the past two games rather alarmingly.  The Leafs could wind up being a very good team next year.  Lot of speed and talent.

Huge win, big difference being up 3 2 than down 2 3 .....

Nothing ever easy watching this team, another nail biter 3rd period .....

Collective gasp when ovi went down from that cheap hit .....

Wilson used up his good will with those cheap penalties that could have been costly and went to the dog house ......

Mixed emotions about them not getting the cheap shot artist except for that slash .....

That was an intense game! Leafs giving the Caps all they can handle. Both goalies were outstanding. The officiating was again horrendous, and tilted very heavily towards the Leafs. The Caps do seem to find another gear in OT though. Bad luck and lost faceoffs cost them earlier in the series, but they weren't going to be denied last night. That was textbook tic tac toe.
