Rough night for Hank (Photo: Jim Rogash)
I’ve got mixed feelings about yesterday’s loss to the Nashville Predators. The first period was genuinely awful, and the game was filled with all sorts of narrative wretchedness concerning former teams and abandoned prospects, but the Caps put up an honest comeback effort, and Troy Brouwer’s contributions shouldn’t be dismissed.
That said, it’s all in the past now. Barry Trotz made some noise about having no short-term memory in this final stretch. I see the virtue in that. As the Caps prepare to take on the Rangers, I hope they can leave their behinds in the past.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|New York Rangers||47-20-7||51.2%||101.8||17.4%||84.2%|
Again, I have no idea what the lines will be, so this whole heading is a farce. Here’s what they looked for at least some of yesterday.
Ovechkin — Backstrom — Wilson
Johansson — Kuznetsov— Brouwer
Laich — Fehr — Ward
Glencross — Latta — Chimera
Orpik – Carlson
Alzner – Niskanen
Green – Gleason
Getting me excited for Orioles baseball. Also, go Nats. See: I can be lofty and king-like.
