Lindsay, so you are going to yet again sit at the Phone Booth and rub it in that you are there and we are here? Because that's what these chat's are really about....

Not my intention at all!

Stuck with Screamin' Steve Kolbe... Works sucks, can't even follow the live chat because of the blocked scripts.

However

Go Caps!

Just because you score on the 5 on 3 you dont stop hustling...we got to keep the pressure on all game!! The penguins will not give up..Dump the puck and go after it and stop trying to be cute!!! BUT HEY WE ARE UP 2-1...and they are playing better than us except for VARLAMOV

Terrible period by the Caps. Very lucky to be winning this game.

Varly, even though he could've had Crosby's goal, kept us in the game. We're not playing well at all.

Keep Erskine off the ice when either Crosby or Malkin are out there.

They seem to be allot faster than us...defense needs to take better angles to the puck...2 Penalties on Chris Clark...man I miss Brashear!!

caps look like they're a little more into the game this period - but just a little more

Posted by: Capt_Kirk_in_AZ | May 2, 2009 2:23 PM | Report abuse

Just as I praise him, he gives up one of those ....trying to underhand glove the puck and it trickles by...2-2!

Posted by: seanjo93 | May 2, 2009 2:30 PM | Report abuse

noooooooooooooooooooooooo

Posted by: RedBirdie | May 2, 2009 2:32 PM | Report abuse

What a weird game. They outplayed us in the 1st and we won it. We outplayed them in the 2nd and they won it. Varly let's in a real stinker and then makes 2 incredible saves. The 2nd one on Crosby was just ridiculous!

Posted by: ranndino | May 2, 2009 2:40 PM | Report abuse

Caps almost always come out flying in the third. Fingers crossed!

Posted by: RedBirdie | May 2, 2009 2:52 PM | Report abuse

FLASH! and now the Czech Republic represents with Russia and Wisconsin.

ARE YOU KIDDIN' ME...WITH THAT HIGHLIGHT SAVE FROM VARLY!?!?!?!?

"Save of the playoffs."

Understatement. Save of the decade.

C-A-P-S caps caps caps!!!!!!!!!!

Penguins=FAIL!!!!!!

Posted by: RedBirdie | May 2, 2009 3:36 PM | Report abuse

Great Job Caps! let's keep this going! =)

Posted by: jogabonito | May 2, 2009 3:37 PM | Report abuse

anyone else worried about the amount of shots given up by us?

Posted by: rachel216 | May 2, 2009 3:37 PM | Report abuse

oh and Varly was on top of his game ! truly admirable for such a young guy

Posted by: jogabonito | May 2, 2009 3:37 PM | Report abuse

VARLY'S BETTER.

Posted by: richmondphil | May 2, 2009 3:38 PM | Report abuse

so much for the Penguins sweep, huh? :)

wonder if everyone will be rushing to talk to Steckel now!

Posted by: RedBirdie | May 2, 2009 3:39 PM | Report abuse

should be allowed by us

Posted by: rachel216 | May 2, 2009 3:39 PM | Report abuse

nbc and refs wanted to give game to pens

Posted by: dude_clutch1 | May 2, 2009 3:40 PM | Report abuse

how bad was the broadcast? (damn the people who schedule a friggin' conference during playoffs!)

Posted by: RedBirdie | May 2, 2009 3:41 PM | Report abuse

Sheesh. Got this one without playing particularly well thanks to Varly.

The reading of plays needs to improve. Way too many missed assignments and running around resulting in tons of outnumbered chances. Can't do that against a team that's as skilled as the Pens.

Anyway, congrats on the win. That's all that counts for now.

Posted by: ranndino | May 2, 2009 3:43 PM | Report abuse

BAH HA HA HA HA!!!!!! This is for all the over-confident Pen fans that said the Caps will be over-matched and it will be a quick series! BAH HA HA HA HA HA! Now, I just hope there will be just as many Capital fans polluting their stadium as they polluted the Verizon Center! That was just too much to bear to hear applause for Penguin scores at the VC.
