No comments?

I guess the fanbase is showing up about the same time as the Caps these days.

This team, because of its outstanding offense, has played with fire all season long--like the Chicago game--by being listless, and then kicking it in for the win. I hope that their success in doing that hasn't made them comfortable trailing by three goals in the first period.

The NHL since the Olympics has looked more like playoff-style hockey, the Ottawa game notwithstanding, and the Capitals haven't fared as well as their league-leading standings points would suggest.

I really hope that the team's incredible success and effort this regular season doesn't turn into an asterisk because the team is unable to come back from a a 3-1 series deficit in the opening round.

IMHO, the Caps are not playing 'playoff' style hockey because they are unable to. Coach BB's style is offense, offense, and more offense, backed up by 4 puck-moving d-men. GMGM, for some unknown reason, decided not to shore up the defensive corps and instead got another of those puck movers on the blue line. Fans know it, the other teams know it, announcers know it, analysts know it, the Caps do not, or cannot, or don't care to, clear the crease. It also appears that the Caps don't care much about killing penalties, or are not being coached properly on how to do it. All these things lead to the high possibility of one series and out during the playoffs. And the blame goes to one man...Gen Mgr. George McPhee.
