Ugh - A Nooo Point Night In NJ...


Well what can you say. It was the second night of a back to back and the Caps joust couldn't make it happen. They went out to a 2-0 lead on two goals you don't often see Marty Brodeaur give up and then after that is was pretty much all Devils. You could pick one thing or the other but that probably wouldn't be fair, it was a game where the Devils just played their game all sixty minutes and the Capitals pretty much, I can't say let them, no I think saying just couldn't stop them would be a better characterization. I really don't think tonight was anybody in a Capitals uniform played their wost game ever, and I don't think it was anybody's best game ever either.


Personally I'm not going to dwell on things good or bad tonight. So far for the season the Capitals are second in the Eastern Conference tied at 28 points with the same NJ Devils who beat them handily tonight 5-2. The Caps are 12-4-4 (0.778) while the Devils are 14-4-0. So far this month the Caps are 4-2-1 (0.643) and have gone 4-2-0 while Alexander Ovechkin has been out. Next up the NY Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday Evening.


LETS GO CAPS!!!!

And, once again, the anti-Semin lobby is in full force because of his giveaway that led to a Devils' goal. Boudreau is pissed off.

I am resigned to the fact that he'll be gone after this season, if not at the trading deadline.

Yes, I am probably the last Semin fan standing (although you recently admitted to being a fan of his, lately.)

Agreed. Stinks that the Caps lost but second game of back to backs, on the road, with travel, against tough team like the Devils...that's a tough task.

Diane: I've always been and continue to be a Semin fan.

David: Interesting point, I was texting back and forth to my buddy Jim who is a Devils STH since 1983 and basically said I thought it would be a hard game for the Caps to keep it together for 60 for the same reason. I really don't understand why given what great shape the Caps came in to camp in but the injuries are really befuddling and the physically drain facing two teams like the Wild and the Devils let alone as you point out do the second one on the road was indeed draining...
