I can't wait to see what they do with this.
Slapshot 2 was pretty brutal though.
Hopefully they do a better job with this project.
I actually had the honor of skating with the Hanson brothers in a benefit game.
Those guys are a riot!

Need to finish this period 2-0 and no worse.

I know NJ are less defensive than previous years but any hopes they had of getting an early lead and killing the game has gone out the window now. They have to come onto us now and that only suits us.

Posted by: DaveUKCapsFan | February 3, 2009 7:37 PM | Report abuse

Sick start. Green is on fire, Semin with the Backstrom like across both D saucer...that faceoff play on Laich's goal was superb. Theo looks sharp so far not much anything dangerous his way yet but he looks on his game.

Wow Greenie and Fehr off the iron. I kinda like Nylander skating with Flash and Fehr, as they both seem to create more chances moving off the puck. All 3 scoring lines have looked dangerous so far. Good to see Laich get out of his mini-slump. Step on the gas and put this game away in the 2nd.

Looking Ahead: Really really Good News UPDATE!!!

The last 21 games of the season the Caps schedule includes:

13 games against division foe
4 against Atlanta
3 against Tampa
3 against Florida
3 against carolina (2 at home)

2 games against the Maple Leafs

1 against the Bruins (A)
1 against the Penguins (H)
1 against the Flyers (A)
1 against the Predators (A)
1 against the Sabers (H)
1 against the Islanders (A)

Looking good for the stretch run! All we need is a veteran puck moving defensman.

cool
