Caps want a review for interference. No hope, in my opinion.

It's a good goal. I guess Trotz was not too hopeful either. He had to try that, with only 5:12 left.

You can't expect a hockey team not to want to head to the Super Bowl parties, can you?

Looks like a "Let's get out of here" game.

Caps pull Grubauer with less than 1:40 left, at first the Knights are defending high and even get a chance (Bellemare misses the empty net), then Caps stay in the offensive zone. Good chances, but not enough. Game over. Knights win.

I take back the "Let's get out" statement.

Nice finish.


Loss. 0-2 against this team.

"Party time! Super Bowl!" I can hear them in the locker room now.

Better start polishing up those golf clubs, the way this team is playing.

Caps are 4-4-2 in their last 10 games. Not good enough. It will be hard to stay at the top of the division at this rate.

guam64 at Bumper's:

The biggest advantage you get with the extra man is that you can have numbers down low to go after garbage goals.

They pull the goalie and send out known perimeter players Oshie, Connolly, Kuznetsov, and Backstrom to dick around with the puck around the perimeter while Ovechkin and Carlson watch from the point. :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling:

You want an honest appraisal of this team?

Watch Niskanen's interview.

Indeed (about extra man).

This team is so bland, I tried to answer your question as to who was scratched, and couldn't figure it out.

It was Chiasson.

Oh, yes, I had forgotten him, although I think he showed some good things in the previous game. But they had to scratch someone to give another chance to Vrana, and it was not going to be Stephenson.

I was not able to find a video of Niskanen's interview, by the way.

I think this team is still great. They don't do much in the regular season but they still won two consecutive Presidents' Trophies like that, and are still leading their division this year.

Last year, they had two great playoff rounds, but the Pens managed to beat them while being completely dominated. I was really impressed by the Caps' first round against the Leafs, who played great.

This year, the Pens seem to be good (when they won the Cup last year, they were horrible), but they still gave up four even-strength goals in this game. They're one of the worst 5-on-5 teams in the league. I don't think they'll go far.

Hornqvist is week-to-week, by the way, after that hit by Orpik. It did look serious when he was helped to the locker room.
