Sens Out Cap The Caps

In the game day preview, I predicted another exciting game and said I wouldn't be shocked to see us win, but it was another exciting classic tonight. We jumped out to a 3-1 lead, only to surrender 3 in a row and be down 1. I'm not gonna lie, I was losing my shit a bit. It looked like we were about to collapse, Spezza to the rescue. What a game he had, with 2 goals and 2 helpers.
Brian Elliott looked a bit sketchy on a few of the Caps goals but made some big saves down the stretch too. Erik Karlsson was a mixed bag, another game with 3 assists, including a great pass on the OT winner to Kovalev, but also took 2 penalties again that cost us. But the rookie will learn, seems we have something special. I admit it.

Thoughts from the game:

-Sure was nice to see Kovalev on the scoresheet again, esepcially with such a big goal

-Unfortunately the Thrashers and Rangers won, so we didn't clinch a playoff spot yet

-Theodore is awful

-Man can the Caps ever score

-Sketchy calls again tonight, about 3 high sticks missed that would have benefitted us

-5 wins in a row, man are we ever streaky

-Even in a different jersey, I sure hate Corvo

Thoughts on the game?

With his 4 points, Jason Spezza wins the night

Kovalev is still the most selfish player in the league. We are lucky he was not called for that needless cross check with 4min left.

Spezza and Alfie are tearing it up. Hopefully we keep rolling right into the playoffs. It would be nice if we won the last 3 road games to finish 0.500 on the road.

we were lucky to win that game, battle of shitty goaltending. we won't get such weak defence and opposition come the playoffs.
