Varlamov is made of glass. Plus, Neuvirth looks like Hello Kitty. When you look like that, you clearly are awesome.


Neuvirth has been pretty solid so far, 1 goal allowed in two games in the playoffs? That's hella good. I wish we had Holtby as a third alternate, but we'll make do.

Really good team going into the Playoffs cold against a team coming in really hot. It's a bad combination that happens a lot in the Playoffs, and the team that comes in cold usually ends up with an early vacation.

Wings baby. Feeling very good with the 2-0. Datsyuk was huge.

I asked for round 1 tickets for my birthday but that didn't happen:( With the Rangers, it's hard to say "maybe next year" since they're been flaming hot garbage for the last 10+ years:(

Damn...the same thing the Sabres got away with in Game 1 sealed their fate in Game 2. Too many stupid penalties. That shit better stop when the series moves to Buffalo. Tyler Myers is also playing like complete shit. Miller can't bail you guys out every freaking night.

There's something to be said for gathering any hockey fans/friends you have (or random non-hockey fans) for a few beers at your house/apartment/local bar. I don't have any close fans that are hockey fans, but since it's the playoffs, I bribed them with cheap beer, and suddenly they were rooting for my Caps!

I had fun going to Game 1 in Washington, but I had just as much fun meeting up at my fave bar last night for game 2 :bouncy:

I'm happy with the win, but the Flyers really need to do something about their PP. Simply awful, 1 out 10 with two 5 on 3s (there was one that was an abbreviated one; but I'm not really counting that).

When a team is taking too many stupid penalties, you need to drive the dagger through the heart.

My father and one of my brothers are Devils fans. Things get heated. Especially since they're diehard fans to the point of having the team logo tattooed. #-o

KingBroly, where are you located? It's nice to see another Caps fan located on the random CAGoSphere!

In Charlotte, NC. I'm originally from Silver Spring, MD. I've been to 1 Capitals Playoff game in my life, and it was the sweetest one of all. Game 6, 1994, versus the Penguins.

For real. Any other goalie would've let up at least 7 goals.

I think Buffalo has a good chance of going up 3-1 after the next 2. I haven't been impressed by the Flyers at all. Though Buffalo doesn't impress me either, but it seems like they'll be able to correct the ship.

I don't know if Boston can correct the ship though, as they've looked absolutely terrible so far. Montreal might sweep if the Bruins don't figure out something.

While Chicago is down 0-2, I still have a feeling they could come back and win that series. After the first period in Game 1, they've played really tough hockey.

I wish I shared your optimism on that. I just don't see it happening right now, the Canucks are just too good.

I ended up selling my tickets on craigslist to last nights Sharks game. And boy am I glad I did. That was tough to watch, too many mistakes to name. That being said, I still think the we win this series. But we aren't going to beat a team like Detroit or Vancouver with this kind of play.

Today's game will be a telling sign, especially early on. Chicago seems to be streaky, lose 3-5 here, win 6-7 there. To be honest, I'm not that optimistic for them.

Well, can't say I didn't see the Caps dropping one game in MSG. Too bad we had it in our hands again and again. Oh well, a lead is still a lead.

But you're from Dallas. Why would you care if... oh. I forgot that the Blackhawks were responsible for the Stars...
I get it now.

How the Fuck is Steve Downie still playing in the NHL? He should have been banned a long time ago. And that elbow by Kunitz was insane. He'll get at least 2 games.

I gotta give Phoenix some credit. Despite their ridiculous mauve uniforms (what's with the shoelaces at the neck?), they played with a lotta fight last night despite being heavily outgunned by Philly.

Phoenix...outgunned by Philly?

Only 2 games tonight. Can Vancouver sweep? I hope not.

1 game for Downie and 1 game for Kunitz.

NHL signs 10 year deal with NBC/Versus

http://sports.espn.g...tory?id=6389351

I was hoping they went with some deal involving ESPN for more exposure. Pretty weak.

edit: looks to be exclusive too, more here. http://www.nhl.com/i...vid=DL|NHL|home

That's pretty bad. Clear intent to injure directed at the head.
