Caps lose 3-1 to 'Canes

Caps lost the 2nd game they played in under 24-hours with a flight from Toronto to Raleigh, NC in between. I didn't get to see the game but from what I've read goalie Jose Theodore didn't play well enough to steal a game for the Caps even though he was rested. He's still playing in front of an amateur defense, too, but that excuse doesn't go very far for a veteran netminder. Theodore's currently ranked 41st in stats with a .888 save % and a 3.08 GAA. In other words, the Caps won't be playing long in the post season (assuming they make it) with him in net unless he finds his game.

In the rare good news department, Sami Lepisto got sent back to Hershey after another rough performance against the Canes which means either Tom Poti or Mike Green will be available for the game against the Boston Bruins on Wed. It's about time Caps get one of their injured players back.

The game against the Boston Bruins is going to be tough for the Caps. The Bruins are tearing up the East with an 18-4-4 record. I'm not looking forward to seeing Milan Lucic, the hard hitting defender that took out Brian Pothier indefinitely with his hit, play against an injury depleted Capitals team. My best hope for the game is that Caps don't suffer any more injuries.

Let's go Caps!
