Need a much better game at home from our Cappies. Backstrom "game time decision", says Trotz. He's not listed in the NHL Event Summary yet (and, as soon as I type that and refresh their page, he is).

Terrible PP.

Intermission. The Bolts are leading and they got a big boost from their three PKs.

So I'm gone. I think it's only one period, and it's no big deal. But the Caps must play harder than that. They must constantly fight for the puck.

Good night, Roger.

I kept the stream on during intermission for their analysis, and how right they are about the terrible fans the Caps have. How can they boo their team like that?

Cheer for your players. They want to win more than you want them to win. They're trying their best and it's a very hard game.

I'm gone, now.

All the fight and hard work was taken out when they brought Burakovsky back in the lineup.

Were it Coach crowe, he never would have changed the Pittsburgh Game 6 lineup barring injury.

Never mess with a running machine.

2nd on, first 4:00 even, but Sergachev is just running over Burakovsky at will...

lethargic play for just a second... Caps come up with it, out with it, Ovie to Kuz...

5 hole!!

2-2

Caps playing well now, 12:52 left 2nd and Oshie is tripped- PP time again... had the wrong guy in the box, after much review they settled on Hedman... 2 SOGs, killed, Caps still in good control...

7:51 left, play has been so so, couple good chances for the Caps... Bolts went from the Killorn goal about 21 minutes without a SOG...

6:35 Vas HUGE save on a Stephenson shot... Vas big again, SOGs are 28-9 Caps... Bura another just terrible shift, has the puck all alone in the Dzone, two TBLs come in, dump him, take it away...

HUGE save Holtby on a breakaway and then the high rebound at 3:58-... 2:08... not much going on... Holtby easily covers at 1:52 left 2nd... another big save on Kucherov... 1:00...

2-2, end 2nd.

3rd is gonna be riotously huge.

:D

3rd on...

3:00+ gone, like two boxers feeling each other out... CBC says Caps have taken over the neutral zone, now...

they'll get it behind Vas soon... almost, Kuz... almost, Orlov... Vas HUGE save on Connolly, great shift by the Caps...

TBL all the control between 12:00 and 11:00, good plays by Orpik and Kempny, another big save by Holtby...

Caps to the box at 10:09 left- gutcheck time...

big block from DS-P, big glove from Holtby at :43 left PK... Bolts score just after the kill on a broken looking play.

3-2 Bolts 8:00 left reg.

After the goal, it's a chess match to 4:31 left, timeout as puck out of play- Caps want a call, but don't get it...

3:45 Carlson right in front of Vas, all logo, no rebound... timeout at 3:03 left... offside Caps at 2:36, officials confused thinking it's icing, but discussion it's offside so Caps get to change... 2:14 Holtby heads to the bench...

all Caps, almost once to :49 when it's cleared... got it again... nope...

ENG at :01.

4-2 Bolts final.

Great summary of the last two periods, Roger, thanks.

I've also watched the video summary.

Shots: 38-20 Caps.

Total domination, once again, and another loss.

Exactly like in the previous game, the first two goals they gave up were terrible and they were not able to score more than two themselves.

The Bolts didn't play well, and they know it:

"When you don't have your 'A' game, you need your goalie to have his 'A' game," Cooper said. "And he sure did."

You may be right about Burakovsky, but he also showed some great things offensively last year in the playoffs, and I guess they mostly need offense. But perhaps Chiasson or Walker would do a better job right now.

On the PPG, Smith-Pelly had a quick look at Stamkos behind his shoulder, then he tried to stop Point with another Cap, they were two on Point, leaving Stamkos totally alone in a perfect position for his awesome shot. They really need to fix this. They managed to control Kucherov this time, but not Stamkos.

Also: Carlson is -3 for some reason. Niskanen, Djoos and Orpik are +1.

The Caps are not trailing in this series. They are not facing elimination. They have not faced elimination once in these playoffs. No need to worry yet. They'll play in Tampa, away from their booing "fans". Good.

They generally react well. They have lost two games in which they have played very well, except for a couple of costly mistakes. No need to panic. They'll go get that win they need now.
