Caps won't look ahead until they're done with Montreal

Tonight at Verizon Center the Caps can accomplish something they haven't managed to do in 12 years: Win a playoff series in five games.

The last time they did it was against the Senators in the spring of 1998 - the same year the Caps made the franchise's only Stanley Cup finals appearance.

A win wouldn't just give them significantly more rest -- the next round wouldn't begin until Thursday or Friday -- it would also set up an semifinal matchup against the rival injury-plagued Flyers, who eliminated the Devils in five games Thursday night despite losing star forwards Simon Gagne and Jeff Carter to foot injuries.

"We've never had [this] opportunity," said Coach Bruce Boudreau, whose teams in Washington have never played fewer than seven games in a series (three times). "Tonight is baptism under fire with this group as far as having a lead in the playoffs and seeing if we can finish it.

"We don't want to give them life," he added. "I'm sure Pittsburgh didn't want to give Ottawa life. In the end, we just have to be ready and prepared and not take anything for granted."

Semyon Varlamov will start in goal and the forward lines, based on the morning skate, will remain the same as Game 4. The only question is whether defenseman Shaone Morrisonn will be able to suit up. He told me he'll be a game-time decision.

If Morrisonn can't play, he'll be replaced by Tyler Sloan again.

Jaroslav Halak, meanwhile, is expected to return to the Habs' net tonight after Carey Price yielded four goals Wednesday, including goals on back-to-back shots 52 seconds apart in a pivotal third period.

Price, of course, also received a pair of unsportsmanlike penalties -- one for firing the puck at the Caps' goal celebration and the other for taking a swipe at Nicklas Backstrom with his stick from the bench.

"It's frustration," Boudreau said of Price. "He wanted to, but he held back. It was just a little love tap."

Backstrom said he was surprised but amused.

"That was the first time," he said with a chuckle. "I felt it. I didn't know it was the goalie. It's not a big deal."

While it's unclear whether Price's late meltdown had anything to do with the switch, the Caps didn't sound overly concerned about who's starting in net for the Habs.

They're just worried about finishing off an opponent they know will be more desperate tonight than ever.

"Closing games are very difficult because the team you're facing, it's the end of the line for them," Mike Knuble said. "So you know you're going to see a good effort."

Brooks Laich added: "They're going to play loose and carefree and they're not going to hold anything back. I watched a hockey game last night where Ottawa played that way. They played with fire and passion and desire to win and I think they outworked the other team. Montreal is going to come in a down the same thing. We're going to have to be at our best."

Laich reiterated his coach's sentiments about not overlooking the Habs. But he also acknowledged the importance of keeping pace with potential second-round opponents.

"You can't look at what's going to happen down the road," he said. "That means you're totally disrespecting the team you're playing right now. That being said, you want to keep pace -- it's the same during the regular season -- with the top teams. With the teams that move onto the next round, you want to be right there with them."

Some other notes and quotes from KCI:

*Canadiens defenseman Jaroslav Spacek did not make the trip to Washington and will miss his second straight game.

*Boudreau on Backstrom, who is second behind Sidney Crosby in points (13-9) and tied with Crosby for the league lead in goals (5): "He's always going to be overshadowed Every team has one player who gets the attention. And another good player or two or [more] who gets overlooked. Nicky is a guy who gets overlooked a little bit because of Alex."

*Boudreau on the Flyers advancing past the second seeded Devils: "They played great. They looked like a team that's really committed to what they're doing. When you've got guys like Ian [Laperriere] blocked shots like that, and still coming back. Whoever plays them is going to have a tough assignment."

Then Boudreau caught himself.

"I don't know why you're asking me Flyers questions," he said. "I'm not worried about the Flyers. I'm worried about the Montreal Canadiens."

Well, is anyone else on here already worried about tonight's game. This is a change for me too. Years ago, even when the Caps went to the Finals, I was always content with the Caps winning a certain amount of games and just making a good showing. I never got nervous back then because advancing in the playoffs was gravy. Now I expect more and now I find myself getting nervous. I need to get back to a place where I can enjoy these games relatively stress free. My first step would probably be to stop reading these message boards because I think I get nervous for the team because I know if they lose they will get trashed by their own fans.

@vermontcaps: Not at all. He just doesn't match up well against the Canadiens. If we advance and play the Philly you will see a lot more of the Lumberjack.

I assume Erskine is not playing because he is too slow against the little but quick Habs...If we make it to the 2nd round i would think we see him there.

@vermontcaps

the lumberjack isn't a locker room cancer. The habs just have some small, quick, shifty forwards that he doesn't do to well with. If ShaMo is still hurts AND we advance to play the flyers, big john will be in there

vermontcaps: Erskine as you know is a gritty d-man. He does not have the speed or quickness to be effective against the small and quick Habs line-up. If the Caps advance to the next round I would venture to say you would see Erskine in the line-up rather than Sloan if ShaMo is still out. Right now, it's all about beating Montreal and Erskine doesn't have the tools to be effective.

vermontcaps, He will be in if and when the Caps finsih off the Canadiens. They simply have too much speed for the lumberjack but his services will be needed in a big way against the goonish play of Philly. That is my take on the situation anyway.

BTW - I was reading, but didn't get to post on a previous thread regarding new Caps fans.

I think the leaning issue is by far the worst of the worst. I don't have season tickets, but only cause I can't afford them right now, but I grew up going to games and stuff. I went to game one at the Phonebooth this year and dropped some cash to go with my fiance. The whole time we are there I'm stuck behind season ticket holders who leaned completely forward the entire time. I was in the fifth row so I figured asking them to lean back was fine, but they got so pissed when I told them I couldn't see anything beyond the blue line cause they leaned forward so far. I couldn't believe it! One of the women there even had a big red feather hat on. I'm all for rocking the red and wearing cool/crazy red things, but COME ON! Not at the expense of everyone else.

Someone brought up a good point on the goal that changed game 4. Sloan controlled the forward by taking him to the boards and Semin took off with the puck, carried out of the zone, through the neutral zone, into the offensive zone and had it poke-checked to Ovi and Ovi....!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Could argue that if not for Sloan that play doesn't happen.

The problem is, it takes longer to get from the entrance to your seat than the break in play lasts ...

Not exactly. The problem is that they continue to allow people to head to their seats even when it is obvious that the play is about to resume. Nobody is going to make to their seat in less than 5 seconds so somebody's view will always be obscured.

This is a problem that could be easily solved. TV timeouts are rigidly timed and it is fairly simple to predict the length of an icing stoppage. All they would have to do is install a little red/green light in every tunnel. Make it red while the puck is in play and 20 seconds before the puck is put into play. Problem fixed!

That could never happen in section 400. We keep order there.

Posted by: Wiley_One1 | April 23, 2010 1:59 PM | Report abuse

sloan definitely played a part in that goal, and Semin's play up ice was a very strong talented play. He was strong on the puck the whole way.

"So does anyone think Erskine would be in the lineup if we get through to the next round?"

yes, when we're down in the series. Thats when Bruce starts shuffling in players on the 4th line and the bottom 3rd pairing. Even if we win a game 7-6, Bruce will generally not change the lineup. He waits till we lose a game, whether its 3-2 or 6-5 before he starts making changes.

How about hiring ushers that know what to do? That would be easier and cheaper than lights! The section next to ours, guaranteed after 2nd or 3rd.. is just a flow of people. even when people are yelling; the same people are up and down the aisles.

the same lax work ethic also allows us to sneak down below to the 100 sections from time to time.

They had a whole row of people that apparently knew eachother from seeing eachother at all the games. I heard them chatting about being at the different games this season, etc, etc.

I was in 421. I actually looked over at my fiance half way through and said this is why we should have just decided to really get better tickets in 400, or even down on the 100s, where people spend enough money to care about other people's experiences as well.

Yep, I tried to buy those tickets to save some dough. I actually live in the district and make it to about 5-10 games a year. I usually try to sit on the "caps shoot twice" side or in the middle, but decided to save a few dollars and get closer seats on the "other side". Bad choice, I'll never do it again. I was almost sorry I went, having to deal with those people. From now on, I either buy good seats or I watch it at home.

Like BB, I'm not thinking about the Flyers or the Pens or any other d*** thing (though that was one mighty game last night, full props to both teams). I'm thinking about just one thing, and that is sending the Canadiens to find their golf clubs. Forget the rest.

Tonight - folks, this is important. If you have tickets to the game or have a friend who does, pass this on: Everybody sing BOTH anthems, loudly and proudly and with no booing or stupid nonsense. That tradition was started in WWI to remember the absent troops and carries on today for a reason. Let's show the Habs fans how it's done.

I'm pretty pleased with the ushers who frequent my section. Let's have a little respect.

The Hab's fan who does the SB Nation site for Montreal pointed out that the thing that has allowed our first line to have so much success is keeping them matched up against anyone but Markov. While we were worried about Hamrlik/Spacek (at least I was), Markov has had enormous success against Ovi historically and ALL of Backstrom and Ovi's playoff goals have come against other D-men.

How BB managed that on the road is impressive, but particularly with Spacek out and Hamrlik having a weak series, there should be increasing time and space for the Caps' stars to find the room they need. With the number of goals we've managed in our wins they are also ceding us a lot more ice.

If you've ever stopped to talk to any of the ushers, you are likely to find a really nice person who knows nearly nothing about hockey. If you ask them to think any further than a red/green light, any plan will fail. It took nearly two full seasons to teach them to hold up a stop sign and most of them still can't/won't do it right! Heck, you can't even get them to show up for work half the time. I've been to several games where only every third portal on the upper level was manned.

Based on what I've seen in 429, it goes both ways. The ushers could stop people sooner to make sure that there is more time for them to get upstairs, but some people are also just incredibly, seriously slow about it. I've had several incidents in the A-B rows below me where there's an argument over who sits where and everybody is standing for a good five minutes trying to get it sorted out. Would you all please just sit down so the rest of us can see and sort it out at the first TV timeout?

There are also a certain group of people with tickets in the nosebleeds who seem to have a real problem climbing stairs. In all seriousness and with no rancor - if stairs are difficult enough for you that you need to take several minutes to climb to your seat, work your way in, and sit down, there are sections of seats meant for easier accessibility. That's what they're there for.

On the usher issue. Having worked for a sports team and having to deal with usher assignements I know how much of a pain it can be. The team I worked for had a policy where we had to get those who had worked the longest more games and could not fire them for doing something similar to what Beaupre33 taked about because they knew the season ticket holders and the team cared about making their experience better more then individual game attendees.

Not saying that is a great way to have it but teams care about those who are giving them a steady income because they are the ones who give them money if the team is winning or losing.

@vermontcaps: Ottawa doesn't have the luxury of suiting Dmen to the team they're playing - the Caps are deep enough to get away with it. Carkner was awesome last night, but he was fortunate as well.

I have no doubt that should we see the Pennsylvania Road Cones in the second round, we'll see both Oisk and Scotty Walker.

I saw this interesting comment on Hbas Inside Out:

"Looking for a hopeful precedent? Stop being delusional!

"But ... Montreal did come back from a 3-1 deficit in the first round of the 2004 playoffs when the 7th seeded Canadiens met the 2nd seeded Bruins.

"After losing the first two games in Boston, Montreal got back into the series with a 3-2 Game 3 win in Montreal. Then followed one of the most crushing losses ever suffered by the Habs. Old friend Mike Knuble tied the game with 30 seconds in regulation. Ten minutes into the 2nd OT period, Glen Murray took advantage of a mixup between Sheldon Souray and Alex Kovalev to break in alone on Jose Theodore and bury the game winner. (You may remember that Kovalev stopped skating, looking for a slashing call that never came.)

"The Habs looked dead, but miraculously stormed back in Game 5, smacking down Boston 5-1. Back home for Game 6 Montreal was again dominant in a 5-2 win that evened up the series 3-3.

"With momentum firmly on their side, Montreal won Game 7 in Boston 2-0. Theodore was outstanding in goal and Alex Kovalev fed Richard Zednick for both of his 3d period goals, including the empty-netter that sealed the deal.

"It was the first (and only) time Montreal has returned from a 3-1 deficit to win a playoff series.

"We can dream, can't we?"

I didn't realize that Knuble did that to Theodore.

All kidding aside, I think many of these problems are solved when fans--new and old fans alike--come to the games because they genuinely want to enjoy the game and support the team.

Not just so that they'll be able to impress their friends by saying that they were there.

People who move about when they shouldn't, lean, gab about non-hockey matters, and text/yakk on cell phones when the puck is in play--IMHO--all fall into the latter category.

@VarlyisNarly: don't be so sure that the 100 level seats are that much better. At game 1 I was in 108, right next to the goal, and the person in front of me jumped up every single time the Caps had anything close to a scoring opportunity. He was in row G, so once he got up, everyone else had to as well. But hockey is so fast that by the time I (and everyone else) reacted, the play was over.

@iceman10: I saw the Capstronaut in section 100 or 101 during game 1. I didn't notice him during game 2, but I wasn't really looking.

You've never watched a game from up there then - much better than the lower level. You can actually see all of the ice at once, which you can't do from home OR the lower level. It's MUCH easier to see a play developing.

I would have to disagree. Last season, I was in 406, a corner section. This season, I'm in 409, right above the goal the Caps shoot on twice, and we never have problems with that. But the one time I sat at center in the 400's was the best. The worst - when I was in the 100's, 5 rows back from the glass in the corner. Had to watch most of the game on the Jumbotron.

It was cool to sit that close and I got a picture with Brash in the Sin Bin, but when ever the puck went along the boards or into the corner I had to strain my neck to see the jumbo tron. The 200-level provides the perfect combination of height to see the play develop and being close to the action.

It is disrespectful but mostly it annoys me because A) it has nothing to do with hockey B) it has nothing to do with Washington DC and C) it has nothing to do with the Capitals. Frankly it's embarrassing and I have to wonder if the people who shout it know why they are doing it, and do it just because everyone else is. In Dallas they shout out "STARS!" whenever that is mentioned in the song. I have an idea. Why not just listen respectfully or sing along?

I look at it with the same argument as the Canadiens' booing of the U.S. anthem. The anthem does not have anything to do with the team, therefore while the anthem is playing, be respectful and separate that from cheering for your team. Just my thoughts.

Regarding Semin:
When I saw Semin's toe drag aka curl-and-drag live and from the 3rd row at VC I became an instant fan. I hope he gets going soon. I may be prejudiced, but I hope BB doesn't take him out of the line-up. He gets a lot of attention from the other team for a reason. He is world class talent. But, I know why the detractors are out. He hasn't produced and he needs to and I understand that.

Regarding former Flyers players:
Should the Caps advance of course I want the Caps to win. However, the Flyers alumni did a lot for my rink so I have softened my once negative feelings towards them. Those alumni games brought a lot of money and interest to our rink and helped keep it afloat. Brain Propp is one of the nicest, most down to earth people you'll ever meet. Great guy. Surprisingly I thought Shultz was a nice guy as was Watson, Goodenow (sp?), and others. However, Bob Kelly is an ahole. He tripped me, he slashed me. This is in a friendly game to raise money. And off the ice his behavior was just as bad if not worse. Needless to say I don't like him a little bit.

Yeah, could there be an obnoxious poster block button? JoeK, Cstanton, B33, please take it outside.

I agree with the poster who said leaners can be asked politely to lean back. Most are okay with that. One time, though, a guy I was at the game with got tired of asking a drunken girl to stop leaning forward. She had a walkway (no seats) in front of her. Finally, my friend got fed up and STOOD in front of her so she could get the message. Problem solved.

Worse were the two federal workers (both women) who chatted non-stop very loudly throughout the entire Caps/Penguins game behind us. Finally, during the shoot out I turned around and said, "You are too loud". Shut them up for maybe 5 seconds. I love it when people make noise, or even if they are talking about the game, but I didn't want to hear every detail of every co-worker of theirs and then all their relatives.

Okay, enough whining (at least from me!) Let's go Caps!!!

@rachel216
You're right, sorry about that.

Not sorry about the CH winning though.
But now, i'm very scared about next game:the Caps played very well and we were lucky the refs didn't see us playing with 6 players like you guys got busted for!

One things's for sure, the show is great! I was most happy about playing Washington.

Varlamov was very good, too bad for you Halak was better.

Sorry again: little frustration here.... but i still hate the guy:wish he was on my team.
