    Oh man, this years Caps team is ugly! Going to be a struggle without some D.

    So far, this Antti Niemi experiment is not blowing my pants off. :facepalm:

    Honestly I can't blame that game last night on Niemi. He made some fantastic saves to keep them in it, they just got outplayed in their own end. Don't get me wrong, he didn't like a top 5 netminder in the league, but he did look like an above average backup.

    That said I said it before and will say it again, if they want to run a goalie tandem with the "backup" playing 30 or 40 games a season he is not the guy to do that with.

    Those are some beer league goalie stats from Niemi, .808 SV% and 7.93GAA.

    He was terrible in the game against the Hawks and should have had 3 of the 4 goals he gave up. Last night against Tampa not so much, Pens would have probably won 4-2 if they had actually provided some defense :2c:

    The D didn't show up until the third and by then they were down two goals.

    Stars keep outplaying opponents and losing. Team shooting percentage of 2.94%, 2nd worst 5v5 scoring only to Montreal... Bad PDO, bad luck basically. It's fun to watch because they're playing really well, but man it sucks when so much effort results in a loss. The PP is lethal, PK has been phenomenal, just unlucky.

    There is a good chance Ovechkin has outscored your favorite team.

    7 goals sounds high for the Bs this season, especially since we're 1-2 :rolleyes:

    But hey, at least we're not the Habs right?!

    Let me know when they take 2 penalties on the same play up 1 with 2 minutes left in the 3rd and then challenge an offsides after a goal was scored while still down a man with 50 seconds left in a now tie game, get penalized for not getting it overturned and let up a goal to lose the game with 12 seconds left after they were up 3 goals in the 3rd.
