You two need to get a room..  :snicker:

So what did I miss?  :wackysmile:


Caps win with 2/3 their team and a retired goalie...
Alta and Chaos argued a point....
Eller had a great game....
And Lil was Randy at the end...
And Mick was drunk by end of second.


So nothing new.  :snicker:


Except Caps win a hard fought game
And Eller was a star
And the caps clinch 2nd


Actually I like Eller. He is not a great playmaker or scorer but he is a very good 3c utility fill in guy who has risen to the occasion for this team many times in important situations


And Caps locked into facing Boston in the first round when the Hens beat Buffalo yesterday. After that win there was no other possible outcome. Only thing left to decide was whether they started at home or in Boston. Actually that was almost a certainty before yesterdayís game.
I donít thing home ice mattes thatís much. Especially to the Caps. They are so bipolar with their play they play better away than at home sometimes
Last game of the season will have no impact at all on anything so Iím curious to see what the roster looks like


Anyway. Good on Caps overcoming a bit of adversity and winning a game.


Go Caps

the Caps will play the #3 in the first round, #3 is still to be determined as Boston has two(2) games left and the Isls have one.


The Bruins and the Isls play each other tomorrow, so we might find out then who the Caps get.

Be interesting to see who we put on the ice Tuesday, if Boston wraps up the #3 tomorrow.. With Kuzy (salary) on covid, it seems like they could call up a bunch of Bears/Taxi players?

This makes no sense, that's the reason for the taxi squad this season. Theoretically they could have kept Carr up along with Pilon, but they didn't and elected to go with 11 forwards instead.

Maybe it was a timing/surprise they would be w/o Nicky and Carlson last night, since we didn't hear a peep about them until the warmup skate? Either way, be interesting to see how they approach Tuesday.


Who's even on the Taxi squad? Is there a list somewhere?

yep, they are required to keep a taxi roster, but this team doesnít like to tell everyone what it is.


The Caps website is one of the worst Iíve seen at giving the fans accurate information.

Iíve been looking this morning, odd that I canít find any talking head that says the Caps have won home ice. The closest is a comment by the coach saying they will start the playoffs at home.
