Up 2 in the 3rd and lose 3-2.  Never ends.  :rolleyes:

Too many turnovers and sloppy play.

I was hoping Ovi's wide open miss in the 1st wouldn't matter.  It did.

Yea, any time you miss opportunities like that it bites you .....

One of the first things I tought the kids, you have to make your opportunities count because if you don't the other team will eventually.....

Caps hit them back in the teeth today.  Shame they blew game one, or they'd be a lock to take this.

won a must win game so we got us a series for now.....

I liked how fast they played the other day, end to end, not just set pieces,  but the "experts" criticised them for that .....

Well they played heavy today and it worked out well .....

Backstrom on Crosby seemed to be a good call by trotz....

Never easy watching though, always waiting for something bad to happen, no lead is big enough to relax .....

If that reviewed goal would have counted, the momentum was definitely shifting.  Fortunately it didn't.

Agreed, but it's about time a call or a break went the Caps way against this team.  The BS penalties(or lack of), lucky bounces, and whatever never seem to go their way against the Pens.  

The call was correct though, whatever was called on the ice needed to stand.  The front angle where it appears there is a tiny patch of white between the puck and the line is misleading, as it appears the white you see is actually ice shavings that the puck is resting on.  Not to mention that the line is actually an inch or so below the ice, which would give the illusion of a gap anyway.  The top view it definitely looks like the puck isn't over, IMO.

The Pens have gotten way too many easy scoring chances in the series so far.  Holtby has been the difference there, and conversely, Murray has been beatable aside from his heroics at the end of game 1.

I thought it could have been snow as well.....

Definitely snow piled up on the right hand side of the puck near the post.....

No way you can overturn the call on the ice on that .....

Now we have to wait to see if Wilson gets suspended......

I don't think he should be but with his rep.....

That would be huge .....

I don't think it deserves a suspension, and it wouldn't even come up if not for the NBCS crew.

Wow....

What a game....

Glad to see the Caps stick it to the dirtiest and cheapest team in all of sports.   Murray is wicked shakey.

I am not confident.  I think the league has made its choice .  Backstrom is right, the league has become the WWE.
