The second link is Comcast, and to a man they're saying what we say: the team needs to be a lot better in all areas of the game if they expect to see the post-season (they're just saying it kindly so they don't lose their jobs for profanity.)

Oh, yeah- this second link, when they cut away remember to refresh.

Game on...

lines seem to be

Ovechkin-Backstrom-Wilson
Vrana-Kuznetsov-Oshie
Connolly-Eller-Burakovsky
Stephenson-Beagle-DSP
Scratch: Chiasson...

disaster already. Chickens without heads.

1-0 Blue Jackets.

Well, Caps were actually 33% between 21 January and 3 February (last game not included). 5 goals in 15 PPs. I got the stat from The Peerless.

By the way, I have added a "Return to Index" link at the very bottom of every page, next to "The Peerless Prognosticator", since it is not possible to make it appear where it used to be (just below "Respond to this message").

Blue Jackets with some attempts, but good defense by the Caps.

And Burakovsky with some good offensive moves after that.

Crap. Thug Backstrom to the box for holding the stick, with 2.9 seconds left in the period.

Caps played well in the last minutes of the period. That penalty is very untimely.

I was planning to stop here. I'll stay until mid-game, I think.

I missed the first three minutes of the second period (forgot to refresh the stream's page). So the Caps killed the penalty.

And Wilson scored as I posted that.

A great goal! His first of the year. 2-1 Caps.

A hot moment for Holtby: turnovers, mishandlings... Caps finally cleared that.

Caps playing very well right now, they gotta score.

And of course, I say that, and there's a turnover, then Holtby has to make a save.

Blue Jackets hit the post! Holtby had rather well closed that side, but the puck almost passed behind his neck.

End of the second period, 2-1 Caps.

The last three minutes were mostly Columbus. Caps will need a strong third period.

I stop here. Good night, Roger. And let's go, Caps!

Got outplayed that period, but still got the lead.

Should win, but it'll probably be a one goal game. 2-1 or 3-2.

Good night, Marc!

Wise decision, as far as excitement goes- could be a much better game...

6:00 in, no SOGs for the Caps yet... 8:00... finally Ovechkin (who else?) gets a shot...

Wilson to the box for slashing, 8:37 left reg... easy kill, shotless... and of course, Columbus comes right down and scores.

2-2

6:05 left reg... Caps with only 3 SOGs this period...

3:10 left reg, Vrana to the box... 2:10 reg and 1:00 left on the PP, CBJ uses the timeout... not near as easily, but killed...

pressure by the Caps...

Backstrom with :42.9 left reg!!!

3-2 Caps!!!
