Suprised nobody commented on this game.
Geno is possessed, the man is playing with a purpose. Think he might want that "C", while Crosby sits. Martin looked like doody paper on a couple plays, but also looked like he could be rounding into form *please*. This team is going to be hard to beat, provided the concussion/injury bug goes away.
I had tickets to the game. First time at Consol, and it was a fantastic experience. The crowd was great. The boos every time Ovechkin touched the puck put a smile on my face every single time (until the bastard scored, of course).
Yes, Geno is a beast and probably the best active player in the league right now, but I feel like we do a disservice to Neal if we don't talk about those two in the same sentence.
With Sid out, we need someone to take his game to a new level and fill in the gap. Neal has done exactly that.
And how about Letang? Suddenly, that losing streak makes a lot more sense when you realize he wasn't in the lineup.
