Game discussions 2011 Season 

Post#1 » by Zonkerbl » Fri Oct 21, 2011 1:46 pm

Here's a thread for all discussion of 2011 Caps games.

Caps are on a crazy hot streak at 6-0 with the equally might Red Wings coming in this Saturday for a heavyweight matchup. Caps are winning the right way, with grit in stead of flash, creating traffic in front of the net and making stuff happen. At least two of the goals in last night's win against the Flyers were accidentally knocked in by Flyers defenders. New pickup Vokoun, a veteran, high quality goalie from the hapless Florida Panthers, has been on fiyah since Neuvirth went down with an ankle injury.

LET'S GO CAPS!!!!

I'm not a hockey guy, but it seems to me that if you always have a power forward in front of the net when you have control of the puck in the offensive end - your chances of scoring are infinitely higher than when you don't. They scored a bunch of times like that vs Philly. Otoh, if I'm defending against a team who uses a PF like that, I try to take the guys head off with a 230 lb defenseman - when the PF is standing in front of the net. But trying to do that might screw up the flow of the defense, so the advantage is probably almost always to the offense when using a PF.

Caps took care of business against the Red Wings. Something very different about this team this year. They look...professional,

Regular season means nothing this year. It's Stanley Cup or bust for these jokers.

Argh! Can't believe I stayed up after midnight to watch this game! So frustrating.
