No thug Backstrom, of course...

I want to see the Caps win, but I doubt it. my heart isn't in it.

Got the game on, but muted- tipping the audio to Levon Helm and The Band, this evening. 7-8 tracks left to enjoy before the game audio takes precedence.

RIP, Levon. One of the all-time greats.


I guess many of us are now getting to the age where we'll lose several musical idols a year (the last two days, it's been Dick Clark, Greg Ham of Men At Work, and today Levon Helm)...

life is hard- then, we die.

Music has always been my road to surcease of sorrow throughout this life. Where would I be without it?

Hi, Roger. I think there are good chances, though. They spread the threat: Ovechkin, Semin and Brouwer are on three different lines, and Ward's line is good too. I think the Caps will try to play like they did in Boston, at least in the first period.

Crazy series between Flyers and Pens. These two teams have no goaltending at all. They should play with 6 skaters.

Game on in Washington. Go, Caps!

SCORES!!!!!! JOHANSSON.

Great play. Top line Ovechkin-Laich-Johansson has struck.

Caps are trying to give you a smile. I understand what you're saying, though.

Shots are 8-1 Bruins but the Caps' shot was good, hehe.

Holtby does have a lot of work to do. Caps must have tighter defense.

Green got a stick in his face, but refs didn't see it.

Another good shift from the 4th line (which includes Knuble, this time). I think they'll score. Ward had a huge chance but he forgot the puck.

11 minutes of play and Thomas has not made a save, LOL.

Still 1-0 Caps.

So much for the "Thomas no save, Caps lead" game...

Ovechkin with a great pass to Laich in front of the net, but not enough room to take a shot. Seconds later, Ovechkin loses the puck and the Bruins thanks to a line change get a 3-on-1 and score!

1-1.

OK, Roger, but so far:

Thomas: .500
Holtby: .909

Delayed penalty for the Caps, extra attacker, but they don't get into the zone with the puck. A Bruin touches it. PP.

Not the Caps' best PP ever. Killed.

A chance for Beagle's line in the last seconds, and the period ends in a tie, 1-1.

EDIT: Hehe, same analysis.

SOGs are 14 (Bos)-3 (Caps)... does that sound like a team fighting for its playoff life?

I think not.

Where is friend TAK when we need him?

Elsewhere, thoughts are this looks like two teams out of it at the end of the regular season. I tend to agree.

NEXT GOAL IS HUGE!
