They can't play any worse than the last 3 games... or can they? And after tonight, a 6 day break...

Posting this part early as it's a little late start, and I've already been up since 1:00 AM- just couldn't sleep, lots of things going on in life right now... might just be around for the start, might not be at all.

We shall see.

Hi, Roger. I'm making a comeback to this forum after a long break. In Turkey (I was there for three months), I followed the hockey news on ESPN mostly (I read the recap and checked the stats after every game). Network54 and many other sites are blocked, there, so it was too hard to get to this forum. I gave up using proxies after a week or two. I came back to France on 9 January, but I was first too tired to do more than in Turkey. I may watch a few games, now, or at least first periods.

I'll have to see about the migration of Network54 forums to Tapatalk, also. Oops, I had until 23 January to decide if I wanted the forums to be moved into one group or multiple groups.

I see the pics are gone. There will probably be a way to fix that. I'll see that later.

Just read a little about the migration. Now I'll check the video streams:

Game is on, but no stream on that site, it seems. Just switched to my old source of streams, now watching. Caps killing a penalty. Second PP for the Panthers already. Still 0-0.

Killed, and Beagle even had a short-handed chance.

It was Orpik and Eller for the first penalties, now Bowey to the box for slashing.

Three penalties in 8:35 of play. It doesn't help scoring goals.

Killed, and Bowey was close to get a breakaway because the Caps cleared as the penalty ended and the Panthers were not paying attention to Bowey. They managed to prevent Bowey from using the puck, though.

And they score! Malgin.

I believe the puck hit the leg of a Cap right after the shot, not sure.

1-0 Panthers.

Great shift by the top line. Niskanen had a great opportunity on a pass by Ovechkin but he shot wide.

Chiasson draws a penalty. Caps to the PP.

Great job by the top unit, many combinations tried, although Ovechkin's usual one-timer was the best chance so far. Kuznetsov also tried a great move (going alone to the net).

And they score!!! Backstrom! From Kuznetsov and Ovechkin. Great goal. Backstrom's 10th of the season.

1-1.

Panthers steal a puck in the last seconds, get a semi-breakaway, but Orpik blocks the pass at the last moment. It was a huge chance for them.

End of the first period. 1-1.

Shots: 10-10. Not bad considering the Panthers got three power plays and the Caps only one. Caps played well after killing the third penalty, except for that turnover in the last seconds of the period.

I stop watching now. It was fun.

Let's go, Caps!

Guess I didn't miss much-

"I thought we played pretty well tonight," says Caps defenseman John Carlson, the game's first star. "A few too many turnovers in the first, and then maybe with 10-12 minutes left in the third, I think we could have gotten it deep a little bit better and grind it out when we're up. But other than that, good work ethic and when you draw that many penalties (six), it's for a reason, usually."

Start slow, a little effort, sit on their ass with a lead, don't go for the throat...

Caps' hockey in as nutshell.

Nice to "see" you, Marc!

Yes, "Old Faithful" has finally given out, I think. Lots of good streams to be found in the game day threads at at

https://www.reddit.com/r/NHLStreams/

though. :D
