Second Period

Much like the first period the Capitals have had two early power plays and failed to score on either of them. Alexander Semin had an outstanding chance on the second man-advantage of this period however, standing alone atop the crease with the puck and was robbed by Predators goaltender Dan Ellis.

The Caps also hit the post three times on their fourth power play of the game, which came when Greg DeVries was whistled for holding at 5:58.

Update:
2-2 Predators tie it up on even strength goal. Arnott from Dumont and Hornqvist at 11:20.

Mike Green appeared to get a stick on a Predators pass but wound up sending it to where Jason Arnott -- on a three on two -- was able to get a quick, and what looked to be a relatively weak backhand shot off and past Jose Theodore, who has allowed two goals on seven shots. Once again Theodore was moving side to side when the puck slipped past him.

Update:
After the Predators scored their second goal of the game, they were held without a shot for 6 minutes and 18 seconds. There's no question that the Caps are dominating this game but it matters little with a 2-2 score.

Despite the long drought though, the Predators kept pace with the Caps in shots this period with each team registering seven. The Caps still have a game advantage of 26-11 though.

jt officially sucks 2 goals on 7 shots!!!! 17 foot backhander -- come on! How long before Varmalov is called up

So, should we be mad at JT or were they goals that even Broduer would have let in?

Why can't we score on PP?

Huet is to JT as overpriced backup is to...overpriced backup.

So does JT just have to let in at least 2 goals every night? Seriously, has he played a game yet where he has not let in at least 2?

Talking to my 10 year old, she asked if the Caps scored first. I told her yes, she said they will probably lose, and didn't they notice the pattern and should they just let the other team score first so they can win? Love that kid.

Once again the opposing goalie is completely outplaying ours. It sounds like we're completely dominating the game and yet it's 2-2.

Call up Varlamov already!

the Caps with JT cannot hold a lead!!! Off with his head!

Varlamov has an injury. He hasn't dressed in a few games. Neuvirth is in the Czech Republic. All you've got right now is who's already in a Caps jersey, Machesney and Goepfort (sp?). Take your pick. And then stop whining about how "awful" JT is. Please.

0-4 pp -- ok, what is going on the man advantage?

Posted by: JIMALLCAPS | October 28, 2008 8:36 PM | Report abuse

Listening to the game on computer feed. Not happy. Hearing ""Ellis with the save! over and over. Not happy. "Hearing Theodore makes the save!" Priceless.

If we do not score on a PP soon, I am going to lose my Jack and Cokes.

so it's whining being upset with one team really outplaying the other and the only reason the game is close is that one goalie is thoroughly outplaying the other?

Leeguru,

Your daughter is spot on. Kids are great! My nine year old daughter is sitting next to me doing play by play on hubby's microphone. Think she is set to replace Koken for next Comcast broadcast.

Oh, and she is really pretty hard on JT and keeps telling the Caps to stop hitting like a Crosby.

Posted by: Kim-3 | October 28, 2008 8:43 PM | Report abuse

Certainly not. Its whining when you blame it completely on JT. Why not give Ellis some credit?
Sorry, bad day. Didn't mean to sound like such a ...

All good -- Ellis is standing on his head, and JT is not. Just frustrated with letting the Preds hang in there. I would like to see JT back up a good effort by the rest of the team. Do not mean to take my frustrations out on jmu_capsgirl

Posted by: JIMALLCAPS | October 28, 2008 8:47 PM | Report abuse

Okay, can we get just one game where both JT and the rest of the team play on fire?

I am just saying...

Posted by: Kim-3 | October 28, 2008 8:51 PM | Report abuse

The game is tied going into the third period. I havent seen the goals JT has given up, so I will give him the benefit of the doubt.....unlike a few.

Seems like JT and the team can't get on the same page. They play a good game and he sorta falls flat. He plays well and they can't get anything going. What a team we'd have if they could both get on the "doing well" page!
No worries, I'm just grouchy. Definitely leaving next time they decide to bring a presidential candidate to JMU. My job gets a lot harder to do when they decide that it requires security clearance. :\ Go Caps!!

Posted by: fullright | October 28, 2008 8:55 PM | Report abuse

please, please, please -- hold onto this lead!

Kim, my kid calls Crosby "Crybaby Crosby." I so love that kid!
