Is it just me or have there been a lot of penalties so far in these first 5 games?

Anyone watching that game?

I am committed to the Caps/Philly game.

Caps really turning it up as the game moves forward.

I'm flipping back and forth.

That was so incredibly dumb of Simmonds. I can't get over how insanely stupid that was.

Yes there have been. Tonight's game was littered with penalties and i know that isn't the first time

I didn't see any part of the final two periods where the Flyers played better, honestly. Really solid start from the Caps. First was rocky, but it's period one of game one. They fixed it. And by period 3 they seemed completely in control. It's just the first game. But it was a good one.

I didn't mean than the Caps, I meant they were playing better than they had been earlier in the period. They killed off the 4 minute power play and had some positive offense. Would not have been a confusing comment had you seen when I posted it. I could see how it was confusing to back read it though.

Anyway, Caps played a solid game one. Got the shutout. Only concern would be not generating more offense on the 4 minute power play...and that is not a huge concern.

Great game by the Caps in all facets. Power Play created great chances. Dominated puck possession on 5v5. Penalty was on point. Played a great physical game. Great way to start the series. Only one down though, 15 more to go

You're right about the 4 minute power play but I actually thought the pp was surprisingly good other than that. Still their basic look but they had some chances

Haha yeah, no doubt the Caps were the better team.

Their power play looked great on all the other attempts. I just wonder why when they had a double power play it seemed a little off. Maybe feeling like you have more time makes you slow down the attack too much? Not sure, but I thought they would score on that for sure.

Not putting in that dagger on the 4 min PP was not ideal. Though you're right, overall they got great looks on the PP overall.

Granted, Oshie should have scored on his attempt in front of the net. I think that was on the 4 min

Caps only gave up 8 shots in periods 2 & 3 #CrazyStat

Wes Johnson is the man http://i.imgur.com/JzbAUyR.jpg

Glad Caps fans stayed classy during the moment for Snider

Couturier could be a big loss for the Flyers

Hi everyone. Back from my hiatus. I'm not backreading. I feel slightly better now. Being a DC sports fan, I still expect us to blow it. I still love you all.

P.S. One person I don't love is the Flyers fan who sat over my left shoulder tonight but didn't have the guts to wear orange so instead wore a black Eagles pullover with a small Iggles logo on the left chest but also didn't shut up for the whole game.

Stephen Whyno ‏@SWhyno 1m1 minute ago
Hakstol on Couturier: "We had to go without him for the rest of the game tonight. Won't go any further than that."

I read this as he's still available

Edit: nvm

Tim Panaccio says Sean Couturier has an AC sprain and is done for the season according to #Flyers PGL...

Fucking ESPN spoiled the game score but oh well now I don't have to stay up. Stay sheet shows Mason had to have played solid. Was the Caps defense superb and that's how the Flyers only had 19 shots or did the Flyers just suck?

Fuck really? He is one of the most underrated players in Philly and the NHL. He should be a perrenial Selke candidate and his offense is starting to get there

Caps had a bad first but Holtby played well. Final two Caps basically overwhelmed the Flyers, but I didn't necessarily think the Flyers sucked. Mason absolutely played well. He kept the game close until late, really. The Flyers had basically zero offense going for the final 30 minutes.

Yeah, huge loss. Came as a result of an Ovie hit but it wasn't dirty at all and really didn't even seem like much at first
