Seems like a better link, nut once they cut away, I have to refresh the screen or I'm stuck on "We'll be right back" (English for letting the idiots KNOW there's a commercial break in progress)..

Game on...

5:00 in, I'd say these two teams still don't know each other- they're playing, there's good stuff and bad stuff for both, but there's still a tentativeness to the game...

Grubauer is in net, and his right post saved him on a great shot by Marchessault.

Yes, what a week for Stephenson! He looked great in last game too, although he didn't score (but had at least one big chance). He's showing some self-confidence.

This is gonna take a few to type...

one time at Piney Orchard practice rink, Jagr after practice let the air out of the tires of Craig Billington's Mustang. Biller's trying to use fix-a-flat on 4 tires, and Jagr's telling him "Yeah, work as hard as I do, and you could afford to call a tow."

After that goal WOW BEAGLE , they showed a shot of Stephenson on the bench, and that look on his face was all brag "Yeah, if you guys worked as hard as I do, you'd score once in a while."

Priceless.

Knights send a puck past Grubauer, but Beagle saves them!

Wow, slow motion shows the puck had almost crossed the line.

Some Knights had already raised their arms, I believe. It sure looked like it would go in.

Strange that the action was not reviewed.

LOL at Jagr's joke and Stephenson's grin. Yes, he does look like that. He's feeling great. Good for the Caps.

Oshie's goal the other night got him out of the "Can't buy a goal" box... now Bura has the disease.

Don't wanna look at stats. I don't think stats will be the game this afternoon- this is a little pre-playoffs chess match so far.

Alan May is happy with the Caps' play in the first period, but let's not forget the Knights also hit iron once, and Beagle's save was actually worth a video review. Could be 3-1 Knights right now.

Ok, I lied.

Attempts are 19-14 Knights, SOGs 10-8, and the Caps are only 33% on faceoffs so far.

Maybe just a little bit Knights so far.

Carpenter's goal was his first of the season (third of his career). The primary assist went to Bellemare, of course, and the secondary one to Schmidt (his 19th this season). Schmidt leads the Knights in time of ice so far in this game. He is already in a career season in goals, assists and points.

Ok, the last :25 of that actually was a power play...

Niskanen!

And another dominant shift by Kuznetsov like the one he had Friday.

Lost the stream for a long time. Got it back to work just in time to see Niskanen firing one top shelf.

2-1 Caps.

I believe Ovechkin bothered Fleury a little before that, but Fleury had enough time to try to make a save on Niskanen's shot.

Talking about?

I was agreeing with you- of course, Bellemare.

LOL

Yeah, and then throw that dinky pass through the middle... just when you give the guy credit.

Seriously, I think he finally knows the playoffs are soon upon them. He's picking his game up, little by little. Might be a pretty good player by late March.

So they showed a picture proving half of the puck was still on the line when Beagle swept it out. And a puck on the post is not even counted as a shot on goal, so no scandal, here. The current score is deserved.

Caps didn't play well on this PK at all. Every second of it was dangerous for Grubauer.

I missed a big chance for the Caps.

End of the second period, 2-2. In other words: 40 minutes for nothing, the game will really start in the third period.

Stephenson looks like "Well I did my job, it's up to you guys, now" at this point, Wilson took Kuzy out of the game for at least a few minutes, Ovechkin is almost sitting this one out (no need to mention Backstrom)...

typical Caps' game. Rope-a-dope 'em, play hard for 15-20, and maybe get a win. Or an OT.

Or a shootout.

Yes, not giving their best effort, for sure.

Backstrom is not sleeping after all... 3-2 Caps!

It was on a shot or pass by Djoos, that Backstrom had to control first.

Had to refresh the stream, for the second time in this game. It looks like I was several minutes behind you, hehe. I sometimes post my comments a couple of minutes after things happened, though.

Slacker.

I type my fingers to the bone to make sure you know what's going on immediately.

Everybody on the ice slept through that one.

Grubauer saves their ass.

Quick play by the Knights, and Smith ties the game again. 3-3.

Bowey with a hard shot... "shrugged away by Fleury" according to Joe B.

There's eventually a stoppage. Fleury had taken that puck in the mask.

Goal Grubauer on this one.

Sad effort all around.

Caps are fighting harder for the puck, now. They're on their game.

But the Knights score! 4-3.

Grubauer pushed the puck in with his glove. Unfortunate.

Caps want a review for interference. No hope, in my opinion.

It's a good goal. I guess Trotz was not too hopeful either. He had to try that, with only 5:12 left.

You can't expect a hockey team not to want to head to the Super Bowl parties, can you?

Looks like a "Let's get out of here" game.

Caps pull Grubauer with less than 1:40 left, at first the Knights are defending high and even get a chance (Bellemare misses the empty net), then Caps stay in the offensive zone. Good chances, but not enough. Game over. Knights win.

I take back the "Let's get out" statement.

Nice finish.


Loss. 0-2 against this team.

"Party time! Super Bowl!" I can hear them in the locker room now.

Better start polishing up those golf clubs, the way this team is playing.

Caps are 4-4-2 in their last 10 games. Not good enough. It will be hard to stay at the top of the division at this rate.

The biggest advantage you get with the extra man is that you can have numbers down low to go after garbage goals.

They pull the goalie and send out known perimeter players Oshie, Connolly, Kuznetsov, and Backstrom to dick around with the puck around the perimeter while Ovechkin and Carlson watch from the point. :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling:

You want an honest appraisal of this team?

Watch Niskanen's interview.
