yea, so far I'm not impressed with the passing, but it's still early

Yep, it looks like it's the first time they've played together in a year. Hopefully they get some jam goin in the next 40.. VV looks like the best player on the ice for us.

In other news, I read where they had to help Reaves off the ice in NYR game.. Leg/knee buckled apparently after getting tangled up with Subban.

So, Im watching and there's a delayed penalty on the Caps.. Going to commercial I see Kuznetsov climbing back over the wall onto the ice. He looks bummed. So I figure, oh the penalty must be on him.. Turns out, it was because Lavi called his # for the PK..  :rofl:

I got to watch a game!!! IT was on NHL Network for me.  I watched it late.


1st period was pretty piss poor except for the Oshie/McMichael/Sheary Line.  They had several good chances and I thought they were the best line all night, continually hustling and creating chances.
Kuzy actually looked pretty good on the game as a whole.  Doing that circling the wagons thing again round and round the zone he goes.  Although his circling drop pass at the blue line to Jenson (I think) scared the living shit out of me - it was about 4" from being a drop pass to a 2 on none break away for the Bruins.
Nice to see Big Willy score too.


No Kicking motion?   :huh:   What the fuck replay did they watch?  The guy totally kicked the puck in...It's second nature and how you get the puck out of your feet, you kick it up to your stick.  I'm sure it was not his intent to just kick the puck in the goal, but that is what happened.  Even the Boston announcers were laughing about it and later when they missed on a scoring chance one of them said "just kick it in!"


Vitek looked very good except for the one he thought he had and it was laying on the ice Taylor Hall chipped in.  And he didn't look so good on the Pasternak breakaway, but.....it was like the 10th breakaway or odd man rush so...
Actually Vitek made LOTS of great stops to keep us in the game so I'm not faulting him at all.  I'd say he had a very good game to give us chance to win.


So overall...we looked like slow doo-doo in the first (except for TJ/MM/Sheary), but picked it up pretty well after that.
Pretty sloppy D overall, but I have to be happy with the outcome:  goals by Kuzy, Willy, Oshie, and Mantha including one PP and one in OT.  Especially nice to see all four of those guys score.  I think Ovie had 2 assists?


Our goalies are going to have to be sharp if this is the kind of team D we are going to play in front of them.


I thought VamRiemsdyk played well.  Have not really seen him play much.  Well....he moved the puck well and was involved in the play -  I don't know that any of our guys played good D


I'll take it...got to watch the game and even got a OT and shootout win  :huh:

Caps roster has 15 forwards, 8 D and 3 goalies.


Guess we are skating 5 forward lines, and 4 d lines, and 3 goalies


Each forward line gets 12 minutes
Each D line gets 15 minutes
Each goalie gets 20

 :wackysmile:

Not that I will be watching  :raised-eyebrow:

I tried three different live streams and all I got was "the game will begin shortly".  I reloaded, refreshed, etc.


About to head home anyway, guess I will catch couple minutes on radio before LOS

FFS.  I tried to open the Washington Caps app on my phone to listen live and it says the developer of the app needs to update it to work with iOS.


FFS  - I thought the Caps were like a legit multi-faceted entertainment group or something.

Well I got the stream to work on about the 28th try - just in time to see Ovie go down hurt.
