Priorities Set, Win In D.C. Then Start The Party

The Super Bowl festivities can wait until around 3:00pm or so today and a win against the Capitals would help us enjoy the game tonight.

No GDT today due to an early game plus 'Red" is probably still in bed, so instead we start the Live Blog a bit early.

Not much needs to be said about the game since the Wings faced the Capitals on Friday.

What is important today- get on the plane boys with two more points.

The Canucks are waiting in Detroit for the matchup tomorrow night so securing two more points today is key.

The only advice I have for the game is contain Ovechkin and keep an eye on Backstrom.

Jimmy needs to be good again and the defensive zone coverage cannot break down.

And stay out of the penalty box.  Washington can score in bunches if the door is left open, so keep it closed today.

Enjoy, get ready to party and it's a live blog bitches!

We got a fuching point out of this.  Unbelievable.  A shoddy showing by Jimmy and we’re right back to the high-flying days of the no-defense late ‘80s.

Fuch, of course.  It was decided by the ninth and tenth skaters on the ice for the Caps.

Fuch the refs.  The *#$%@& officiated game this season.

Anyone surprised that with Detroit being +3 on PP opportunities on Friday, that last PP put Washington to +3 today?  NHL officiating: where predictability rules the day.

Exactly.

I know, I know, nothing he could do about it ‘cause it’s a 4 on 3, blah, blah, blah.  It’s always “nothing he could do about that”.  Well, we need a goalie that can do something about that.  ESPECIALLY, in the playoffs.  Look at his numbers, in a 30 team league his numbers have been in the mid 40s most this season.  That just doesn’t cut it, especially at $5M per year.
