A horrible excuse for a hockey game

The Caps lost to the Philadelphia Flyers, 2-0, in their 2nd game of this best of 7 playoff series. The Caps, all of them, deserved to lose this game. They looked tired and listless out there and it's surprising the score wasn't worse. No one is playing physical and you have to against Philly and no one played defense worth a damn yesterday.

Scott Hartnell abused Cristobal Huet, trying to take his helmet off after tackling the net minder. He needs to pay and I'm sorry he didn't yesterday. Philly seems to be taking advantage of Huet's small size. That makes me wonder if Coach Boudreau is thinking of putting Olie Kolzig in net. Olie's size does bring an advantage in net and if anyone went at him, he wouldn't hesitate to mix it up.

The real test is tomorrow night in Philly. How will Coach Boudreau and the Caps respond? It'll be interesting to see how this young & inexperienced hockey team plays after that stinker of a game.

Let's go Caps!

Hey Pass Shoot Score

Looks like the Caps didn't learn anything from the last game regarding being a more physical team. They will never get anywhere in the playoffs until they learn how to finish their checks, I mean, initiate any kind of check. Ovie is the only one who is hitting people out there. Jurcina is simply worthless. If he is allowed to play D next game, I give up!!!!! By the way, hey D, your suppose to protect your goalie, not sit there and watch him get abused. What is the matter with them???????? Simply pathetic. What bothers me most is the Caps beat themselves. The Flyers still SUCK!!!! Sorry I needed to vent.

Love your blog!

I agree with all of your comments! It's the Caps rolling over and playing dead that bothers me the most. Thanks for reading.
