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.

    • They need Trey at 1B. That is his future. Ditch one of Trumbo or Davis. Hopefully both. 
    • Yeah like I said in another thread people who are complaining about Davis are also saying sign Manny to a 400 million dollar contract. Like that wouldn't end badly.  
    • Excellent article by Ed and Peter that verified a lot of what was in my piece but also clarified Lou's role in baseball operations. That was something I wasn't clear about. What this tells us though is several things: - The Orioles are still run by Peter Angelos even if his sons are taking more responsibility and that ownership is still making final baseball decisions.
      - Ownership veteoed deals for Britton and Machado that baseball people liked and thought would help rebuild the team.
      - Lou was in charge of the baseball operations budgeting this off season and perhaps longer, including international scouting. So the fact that they didn't spend much at all in international budgeting would suggest he won't change the poor policy of not spending internationally much in the future.
      - Duquette acts as the GM, but only to bring deals to ownership who then makes final decisions (2hich could include Brady with influence)
      - Like in my piece, Brady wants to be President but doesn't want to do the dirty work of being a GM. He likes to do what he wants when he wants.
        Basically, all things point to this team continually being run like it's been run. No clear hierarchy, multiple people having influences, and the Angelos' running things as they always have. In other words, more of the same.
    • Don't feel like reading the article. Is it much different than Tony's?
    • And you get a deeply flawed roster when you have 3 or more people building on their own without a plan.  Buck may not deserve all of that blame...but he damn sure gets some. This is correct, the systemic issue IS the problem, but Buck has more than a little bit of that blame and not just for last night. Sadly, every word of this is pretty spot on.  The magic is gone. It's piling on, but yep.
    • Sisco's walk rate is at 7.5%.  That's just about average, isn't it? I'm a bit disappointed by his bat thus far, but he's had an adjustment period at just about every level he's been at.  Unfortunately he's been given inconsistent playing time as Buck absolutely refuses to start him against lefties (because our right handed catchers have been doing so awesome) and we've had several steady streams of lefties.  Gary Thorne mentioned last night that Chance never could have imagined he'd see so much playing time and I almost fell of my chair.  He's on pace to start 71 games, though that number will go up as we face more right handers. With all of that said, as Frobby said, I expect he'll adjust.  But he needs ABs to do so.
