2nd Round - Capitals vs Rangers

Recommended Posts

I didn't get to see the game, as for some reason DirecTV decided yesterday was a terrific day to limit my access to NBCS. Even though it went 114 minutes and we lost, something tells me I really missed out.

You missed a whale of a game, although I fell asleep after regulation myself, so I missed about half of it as well. Tough break to lose a game like that. If there's one thing about this years Caps is they've been resilient, countless times in the regular season and in the playoffs they've bounced back and they are going to have to do it again. Don't want to lose game 4 and go down 3-1. Stinks that I'm going to be on the road on Saturday and won't be able to watch/listen at all, ugh!

Man I'm dragging ass today after staying up to watch that. The Caps were just completely out of gas by the end of the game. The Rangers literally looked like they had a man advantage for a large part of the 3rd OT. Hopefully they can bounce back and win game 4 (I'll be in NYC during that game wearing my Ovie jersey proudly).

Great game with so many chances for each side to end it earlier. I stayed up to watch too; luckily, I'm in the central time zone.

P.S. I love Matt Hendricks.

Completely OT, but I always under-estimate how far "west" the Southeast truly is. Arkansas is further west than Chicago! Crazy stuff.

Ok, back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Me too, and I had some important appointments today at the office. I am hurting.

Great game last night, other than the loss thing. Looked like they were trying to skate thru quick sand during the third OT, but the effort certainly was there. Hopefully with the extra day off, the boys will come out Saturday with even a little more hop.

I watched the game from regulation and the 3 OTs. Heartbreaking when Mr. Glass himself, Marion Gaborik, was able to solve Holtby, but it was an instant classic type of game regardless of the outcome. Both goalies had ice water in their veins. Hopefully the Caps come out strong on Saturday and even the series before returning to New York for game five.

I watched most of the two OT's and felt the feeling that the Rags would pull it out so went to bed after two OT's. Both teams deserved it and every game can go this way from here on out. We had multiple opportunities and didn't get the breaks but they can say the same. Two hustling teams, two super goaltenders and some of the best hockey end to end I have seen. I can still remember the days of Scott Stevens, Dale Hunter, Bengt Gustaffson et al - and this is the way we wanted them to play back then. I am very proud of this team! No goons, clean play and great playoff hockey.

I miss the east coast sometimes, but then I remember that football starts at noon here and primetime tv ends at 10 pm. How do you guys get any sleep?

The schedule has been incredibly annoying... here they play a 12:30 game tomorrow, and the O's game is at 1. Ugh.

Anyway, go get 'em boys. Gotta have this one tomorrow.

Lucky for you... while I have MLB.TV, the stupid ass blackout rules prevent me from watching the O's on my laptop.

    • 2 of the 4 you mentioned aren't garunteed to even be with the Orioles after Spring Training ends. 
    • I'm not sure what happened to the post about the Orioles adding more speed. Escobar stole 8 out of 10 bases last year. As recently as 2012 and 2014 he stole over 30 bases.  He is a very good base stealer when he runs. He has one of the highest success ratings in baseball history stealing bases. He is 174 for 218 or 80%. Having Young, Jr 80%, Villar 78%, Mullins 79% and Escobar 80% so far will help us on the bases and hopefully we will stop being a station to station team. Amazing Elias has added two more stolen base guys with 80% success rates to go with our 78 % and 79% rates.
    • I wanted to create a catch all thread for the labor agreement and the potential work stoppage after 2021. Adam Wainwright and Sean Doolittle are very vocal on Twitter from a player's perspective. I am hoping to find discussion around potential solutions along with links to good articles. Is there a good resource that collects all draft bonuses?  I was hoping to see that when thinking about minor league compensation.
    • Love these chats.  Already looking forward to the next one.  Agree with the comment above about a weekly update. Great info, great chemistry.  Love the fact that you guys are local and know the players better than some of the national media. From a marketing standpoint, give yourselves some credit.  I know Terry mentions 105.7 and Orioleshangout.com several times but how about getting rid of the plain (sahara desert) background and put up some type of wall, curtain, banner behind you that gives the youtube viewer direction to the website Great job.  Thanks! 
    • O's just doing their part to get these dominos rolling.  With Escobar out of the way, Manny should be next 🙄😂
    • Several reporters have said Davis arrived last Saturday February 9th and has been sick the entire time. He didn't just arrive on Thursday or yesterday the 15th. I would like to see his stance during his first appearance in batting practice and in his first spring training game. Can someone in Sarasota film or photograph him?
    • I think he is adding to the collective talent in the organization without breaking the bank or making any crazy commitment.   The combination of veteran presence, additional competition, and his ability to play every day and multiple positions makes this a no brainer right now for this organization.
