 Columbus AGAIN comes back from multiple goal deficit, twice in a row in this series and at least the fifth time in the last month. Just a thrill of a ride watching this team mature, built well fun to watch.

Well, at least the Caps won't get knocked out by the Pens this time if they end up losing this series.

 

I do feel for Ovechkin though. It would be nice if he played on a team that wasn't cursed. And with Carlson UFA this year their window may be closed, unless they do a quick retool/rebuild (which will be difficult given their cap situation).

It's not the team that's cursed - it's OV. I see him leaving the NHL soon to finish out his career in the KHL.

Has anyone ever told the Caps, their bandwagon fans and their monster truck screaming PA announcer that the NHL season doesn’t end in April? :VeryCool:

And they came back again tonight.  3rd OT game in a row.

The Caps are putting a good deal of pressure on to start the 2nd OT. I think Kuznetsov gets the GW.

I know they're down in the series and everyone is making choke jokes...but, the Caps could have won all 3 games.

This series is one of those where the teams are evenly matched and playing like it. The games have been entertaining.

I'm a Hershey Bears fan so seeing some guys from the Bears on the Caps makes it more interesting for me.  I can't actually root for the Caps because their fans in my area are more unbearable than the pgh fans though.

Honestly, IMO, Caps fans are the worst in hockey.  They make it impossible for me to ever cheer for Washington (I really dislike Ovechkin, so I would't anyway).   I get the wanting to cheer for Bears alum, though.

So Columbus wins this one in 7, 

neither team wins a home game,

the Caps :capitals: leave one round earlier than usual,

and Blue Jacket fans :bluejackets: are encouraged to

travel abroad to see a playoff victory in person...:question:

I think the Caps can end this tonight.  But pretty much all but one went to OT.

When Trotz and Torts met in the lineup to shake hands, they looked like a pair of rams about to knock heads...both those guys always seem to have a scowl on their faces.

 

Then of course, they both smiled and gave each other big handshakes and pats on the back.... but it seemed testy for just a moment or two... :lol:

Damn. Just damn. I picked the Caps but really wanted the jackets to advance for my wife and because quite frankly they are a fun young team.

 

  This series turned in game 3 when the Caps won in overtime. The CBJ win, it is all over. Instead momentum swung, Holtby played lights out and that was the proverbial that. Oh well. Props to the Caps.

      Hey come on, Pilldoc!  You know full well that  the Caps lose in the  second round.     That movie's bad enough as things stand!

      I would doubt Hynes' sanity if he went with Schneider to start the playoffs. He's lost 12 straight starts and has given up at least 3 goals in all of them.   Back to Holtby though he hasn't been quite as bad as Cory has, but has given up 3 or more goals in 11 of his last 14 games. I think at this point a coach is looking for consistency and right now that's Grubauer if you're looking at the two. If he flops, Holtby can save the day and earn back the starting job. If Grubauer doesn't flop, maybe the Caps finally win something (doubtful with the Pens looming in the second round again). If Holtby is unhappy backing up a team that finally does something, that's on him for underperforming and losing his job.

      I've seen this movie before.  Caps...Caps...Caps is all hear during the regular season.   Caps will find a way to give this series away.  Bob vs. Holtby looks good on paper, BUT I see more pain in the future for Capital fans.   Yes ....the more fair weathered fans in the entire NHL.  Glad to see them in agony again.   Blue Jackets in 6
