1st RD - Caps vs. Bruins

Recommended Posts

I have really liked the way this team is starting out this series , hopefully it continues. Holtby has been lights out , I don't think I have personally seen this kid play as well as he has in the first two games. This whole team has impressed me the first two games but especially Brouwer and JOEL WARD, Ward has played better than he did all season. I got tickets to game 3 so hopefully we play with the same intensity in game 3 and 4 and make the series 3-1 heading back to beantown.LET'S GO CAPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There were just as many if not MORE on his end that didn't get called. Not to mention his goalie PUNCHING Nick in the face while he was being held.

Yeah, what a delusional POS. This kind of stuff pisses me off. Yeah, you won the cup last year, but you're not entitled to anything this year ya douche bag.

I hope they use it and go back to BOS 3-1.

Yeah I was pretty ticked off about that one. Officiating/Disciplen has been pretty inconsistent in the playoffs, not just the Caps-Bos series either. I mean how does Shea Weber not get a game or two suspension for that punch and faceboard smash in game 1 the other night. And then you've got that mess of a series between Pit and Phi. Getting back to the Caps, I've really liked their effort so far in this series and if they can keep up they have a very good chance of moving on to round two!

Bad Sasha-lazy tripping penalty

Good Sasha-nifty pp goal

LOL - Sounds about right, no?

Do you guys sense that Boston is intentionally going after Nicky's head whenever they can get away with it? Pretty bush league if you ask me.

Bruins have been borderline dirty in this series so it doesn't surprise me that h

they would go after him like that.

Yeah I think BOS would have fit in in that PHI/PIT series.

I'm proud of the guys for taking the high road so far. That just isn't our game, and it doesn't need to be... outside of defending ourselves when it becomes absolutely necessary.

    • Glad you enjoyed it.Not free  for non 2020 Birdland  members but coats are a good thing to donate.  I am just not sure what it accomplished. No former or current players or minor leaguers  Elias making the same speech for the seventh time this year. Maybe cleared out some inventory from the Oriole store.   What is a DD card? 
    • Thanks for the research, very much appreciated. This might be explained earlier in the decade long post but are the totals based on time spent on the DL/IL or total games missed due to injury even if a IL stint wasn't required?  
    • 49ers lose a trap game a home vs. ATL, fall back again to #5 seed.  NE & KC keep pressure on Ravens.
    • I think just take best player available in the first two rounds.  We need another interior lineman at some point in the draft..   T The good thing is our picks the last 2 years seem to be mostly working out so we don't have a ton of holes.  If we lose Judon we will need someone to replace him.  
    • 2010-19 Totals BAL 6,040 (3,303 position players, 954 starting pitchers, 1,783 relief pitchers) BOS 8,386 (4,051 position players, 1,558 starting pitchers, 2,777 relief pitchers) NYY 8,969 (4,322 position players, 1,929 starting pitchers, 2,718 relief pitchers) TBR 6,270 (3,044 position players, 1,544 starting pitchers, 1,682 relief pitchers) TOR 7,051 (3,095 position players, 1,841 starting pitchers, 2,115 relief pitchers)   As you can see, the Orioles were the healthiest team in the division over the decade, and strikingly, their starting pitchers were by far the healthiest.    The Yankees were the least healthy, and so were their starting pitchers.   None of that made much difference.    There are a couple of things I wanted to mention.    First, there were far more injuries in the second half of the decade than the first.    All five teams had more in the second five years: BAL 3003/3037 BOS 3947/4439 NYY 3970/4999 TBR 2267/4003 TOR 3224/3827 I don't know why, but it's getting harder to stay healthy. Another thing I thought was interesting is that the two teams whose position players missed the least time are the two teams that play their home games on artificial turf.    I've often heard people say how terrible it is to play on artificial turf and how it causes more injuries, wear and tear, etc.     Ten years of evidence does not support that.   It's been interesting to follow all this over the last decade, but also a lot of work, and I've had about enough.    Bottom line, the Orioles have not been particularly injury-prone over the last decade; in fact, it's been quite the opposite.   2014, the year we won the division, was almost miraculously healthy even though we lost Wieters for most of the year and Manny for half of it.    Our entire pitching staff missed 68 games due to injury that year, and the offense missed only 208 games total.
