Sullivan was right, this was their best game of the series and they got it done in the most important game of the series.


Anyone know why Hagelin was a late scratch?

Also, I wouldn't mind getting Oshie and or Alzner in free agency for next year. I don't think we could afford Oshie(4.1 million this season) but Alzner might be affordable and an upgrade to the blue line.

Man, I'm still on an emotional high right now.

What an amazing game. Knew they could pull it off, and I'm absolutely giddy that they did.

So many had them written off. Didn't believe.

Now they do.


Although, I wish I was a caps player right now....cause I really don't want to have to work today!

My guess is his foot was acting up- he certainly hasn't been looking right the few games he did play.

And we need to beef up the blue line...we've got plenty of talent up front

Hainsey still bothers me..,.,....he looks like a bigger/slower version of Oli Matta circa 2016. I wish they would give Streit a try.

Yeah, definitely not thrilled with Hainsey's play. But hey, no team is perfect.

Thought the forwards did some great work yesterday on the backcheck. Washington was crushing us in game 6 by carrying it the blue line to force our D to step up, then doing that little drop pass back to another forward with speed who would suddenly have an open lane into our zone.

I saw a definite adjustment in game 7 to have the forwards emphasize staying with that second man in and shutting it down. Caps didn't have an answer for our adjustment and started just dumping it in more as the game went along. That's our possession times went up and up.

Yea I don't think you want Streit back there AT ALL. He's worse defensively than Hainsey. The only way I'd play Streit is if Schultz was down and couldn't QB the PP

Niskanen's hands still looked high when he took Guentzel down on the first goal.

Have fun golfing you cheap bastard!

Yeah, figured he had a setback. He was a last minute scratch so coach was playing some games with fat boy.

You wouldn't want to add Alzner?
