4 straight wins. Pretty impressive.

Jackets just refused to take shots in those last 5+ minutes. Passed up at least 3 open looks on the PP before that too.

I think itís worth noting (and only fair to say) that Brooks Orpick came back and made some key plays in the 4 wins after being a dumpster fire in 1 and 2.

He played well overall and we need that from him so much.

No matter what, that was a hell of an effort from this group to pull four straight W's after dropping the first two at home in OT, considering the history this team carries with it. 8 days ago it looked like the Caps were gonna crumble like a stale Pop Tart. But they showed a lot of heart and determination. Just about everyone ended up having a good series. They're gonna have to button up a whole lot tighter if they wanna do the unthinkable, but for tonight, let's just leave it at that was a really impressive job from the Caps, top to bottom. Contributions throughout the lineup, defense minimized excessive high danger scoring chances for most of the series, and Holtby seemed to be himself again. Let's hope it carries over to the next round.

If the hockey gods let the Bruins win just to spite me and make me go through with this, then so be it! Bring it on!*





*I still have no faith in them winning Wednesday

If they lose with Dinato sitting on the 9th floor in a suit I'll be pissed.

Donato did not look good in gm2. Imagine if this team had Rick Nash

This is how I feel. I think they will win, but won't be surprised if they don't. Sad thing is that I feel like the B's could make a long run if they get past this series.

He didn't but they just need another body there that will shoot the puck and not Wingels. And yeah i mean we knew Nash does this in the playoffs but when you see it on your own team it really stands out.

Preach man. :lol

Nash is the worst great player I have ever seen. He is basically the David Price of the Bruins now.

Re: The NHL Thread (Hot takes! 3elieve!)
 
lol thats spot on.

All we need is for him to get in a argument with Dale Arnold

Nash had a good game yesterday. his first of the series though

I guess I'm on the Lightning bandwagon for the East. And go Preds/Jets in the West.

If you arenít rooting for the Golden Knights, you are a dick.

Wanna see Fleury get another one, like him now that he's off the Pens. James Neal is still the worst though.

Roose13 04-24-2018 02:55 PM

Re: The NHL Thread (Hot takes! 3elieve!)
 
Only way I'm only rooting for the nights if Fleury beats the Pens in the Cup. But fuck James Neal.

I was hanging with some Caps fans this past weekend that absolutely hate the Knights. They explained that they couldn't handle a first year expansion team winning the Cup before they do :lol

eh... i'm not a fan of breaking up that 4th line. Just like i wasn't a fan of Wingles playing on the second line yesterday. You probably won't agree, but i'd just roll out what worked the last few months. I'd play Heinen and Kuraly over Wingles and Donato

Marchand - Bergeron - Pastrnak

DeBrusk - Krejci - Rick Nash

Heinen - Riley Nash - Backes

Schaller - Kuraly - Acciari

Fair assumption, but I rather have the lines above. I did not like Wingles on that line yesterday (even posted about that here before the game).

Heinen was skating on the third line today.

I'd like to see a schaller - riley nash - backes line, but it's not time to start messing with things that much. I just think that line would crash the net hard and hit hard
