Huge loss. Honestly much more impactful then I thought it would be. The islanders played pretty well without him in spurts until the trade deadline but we haven’t played consistently good since we acquired Palmieri and Zajac. Trotz hasn’t been able to find any consistency in the line up since their additions. If Leo Komarov is on your first line your team is not in a good situation imo. I still say we turn it on for the playoffs but that’s based on nothing

Yeah, I can just see Wilson taking out McAvoy with a dirty blindside hit to the head and not getting called for it. Just imagine what will be going through Marchand's head at the moment, plotting how he is going to do the same to Backstrom. He certainly won't go after Wilson.

Another interesting thing is that of the eight teams in our current division these two tend to get the most favorable officiating. It will be interesting to see who the refs favor. We all know that they do not call the game as they see it and Tim Peel confirmed that for us this year.

Def just a not get Injured game for Bos-wash. Ovi, backstroke, Wilson back in though. Kuznetsov is covid so he will be back after his quarantine I guess. No oshie or Carlson though. But they should be mostly healthy for game 1 I’d say.

We just gotta come to play, because it's the playoffs and anything can happen.

Didn't bother watching the game. I assumed a B's skeleton crew would get annihilated by a practically full Caps lineup only to see a 0-0 score half way through the 2nd lol.

I was almost going to bet WSH big time. Glad I didn't take that chance. I'd be having a heart attack right now.

Haha yea you can't bet on a game like this that doesn't matter. Oshie, Kuzy and Carlson are out still as well though too. But the caps definitely have the better first line.

For one I'm glad we are playing the Islanders first round because IF we do advance it gets us playing structured hockey early. Like if we were playing the caps first round you know that poop is gonna get loose between them lol

Put your charts away and watch the games James Tanner. I hope the Penguins come in as overconfident as you are.

Bizarre to think that anyone who writes about hockey doesn’t watch games.

The 2016 Cup run started by beating a New York hockey team that victimized us in previous years' playoffs.

Hopefully the 2021 Cup run starts by beating another New York hockey team that victimized us in a previous playoff series.

Forgot we played the Islanders in 2013 as well... out of all of the playoff runs since 2007, that one is probably the weirdest. We struggle against the Islanders, destroy the Senators, and then get smoked by Boston in 4.

Bruins iced their AHL team. Back-up G and none of the top-6 forwards. same for D - none of the top-4 D.

For those above ... Caps were tied for 5th in penalties and Bruins tied for 9th.
Not sure what they were basing "favorable calls" on...

What is the crap? The using of advanced stats to support his ideas?...and how could one conclude that someone else doesn't watch the games if they write this?

Seems like you're just offended by this blog.

The battle of Florida could be a real hot watch too. Those should be really good games.

Hopefully Caps/B's, Leafs/Habs and Bolts/Cats arent on the same times as Pens/Isles haha
