Well folks, THIS TIME, they chose to “dial it in”, again!
 I love of course, the come from behind win, and the excellent third period Energy, against a very good Philip Grubauer tonight, in goal!


 Holtby gave us a good showing, and kept us in the game thank God!


 I hope the third period is a wake up call, for the caps, and not A reinforcement of the idea that they can slack off for 40 minutes, and play real hockey for 20 minutes,  which has, unfortunately been their overall signature for quite a while now!!


Great comeback game!

they played well in the 2nd too, it was just the 1st that they were outplayed, IMO

I guess I'm not the wmimmy of anything....    :raspberry:


It was a good call, Lil! Came very close to happening!


 You may not have hit all the numbers on the lottery ticket, for the big prize, but it was good enough to at least reimburse your original bet!!😁😁
(I was pulling for it to happen).
Chin up, girl!  It was a great win anyway !

 Yeah especially the second half of the second period!!
 That 5 on 3 PK,  and the rest of the PK kill, seem to really energizing going off the ice after the second period!

  And it wasn’t like the avalanche slacked off in the third period either!!  That was some really good strong effort, back-and-forth, energy battles, from both sides there, in the middle of the third.
 Just good freaking hockey to watch!


Then the caps showed us another level that they had in them !!👍

Agreed.  That's what made this game result so huge for us. We learned how to (and that we can) deal with a very good, very fast team that was playing very well.  To me this was different than our other come from behind wins.
 :)



Tampa Bay won their 9th game in a row tonight.

Absolutely it felt different!
A very good Avalanche team was trying to bring their 3rd period A game, as well!! And were maintaining fairly well throughout!!


What we saw, that we haven’t witnessed in so long, was the Caps returning to crisp, responsible, hockey!  The kind of hockey they already KNOW, can dominate any team, when they execute it!


 It also keeps the puck OUT of our zone, way more often,  as we keep our opponents occupied with DEFENDING US!
 The big word take away for this game… REFRESHING!!

lol..  this is new, I wonder if they make one with a couple glasses instead of bottles....


 :hopslam:




it was nice to go to bed in a good mood after a Caps game, but they need to bolster the defense if they are serious about the post season. The first move, since it's the most affordable, should be bringing Fehervary back up full time to get him more experience before April. They should nut check Johnny Norris and put him on the 10 day to make cap room

If only they could bottle up the last 25 minutes.. From the 5 on 3 at the end of the 2nd till the end they were lights out! 1st period was spoiled garbage, 2nd period was "better" but Holtby made at least half a dozen 10 beller's to keep them at 2-1.. 3rd period was pretty stout.  Would of lost the bank if someone wanted to bet me they'd come from 2- zip to beat the Avs in regulation..


It looked to me like they were trying to use the walls between the blue lines, instead of the middle? Early on they looked stiff, like they weren't sure what they were doing. Later on they got it together.. Dirty deflection goals instead of pretty snipes is always a good thing, if you can get it. Hopefully they can build on it.
