Detroit showed what can happen when you can't kill a penality no matter how bad the PP yoi are playing is. Lets hope the Caps took notice and stay out of the box.

So in each case last night the "underdogs" dropped the favorites. This should be a cautionary tale for the Caps. The Caps should also heed what @tess2201 described at the end of the last thread that the Bears were totally flat last night (tho they fortunately pulled out an OT win).

It happens. It happened to the Caps last year, in fact. The good news is that this year's Caps team does not often play a bad game. Come out strong tonight!

I swear I'm going to get some work done today, but sometime before 5:00 I'm putting on the red jersey and I'll probably walk over to Chinatown from Farrugut for some food, drink, and then a great game.

Like last year, we're starting the playoffs on my birthday, though since we were playing the Rags we had to play game 2 on Sunday for NBC, while this year we get to play Sat night for CBC.

There are much bigger differences, fortunately, since we ended up dropping those games. We stumbled and bumbled into the playoffs last year. Theo was looking very questionable; our passing stunk; we couldn't get the puck out of the zone; and our skill guys were playing nothing but cute with the puck. Schultz was playing the third line. Flash, Laich & Fehr were just not as good. Kozlov was our first line right wing not Knuble. The Caps would have to have a stunning turnabout in play for the worse this year if they wanted to resemble the one that entered the playoffs last year.

This year? It's different.

Caps are awake this time. I don't think they're gonna be upset. They're alert, they respect the challenge of the Habs, and they're ready to go.

Caps win 1st 3, then drop 1, then clinch it in game 5.
