That's all he's been in this series so that should read normal.
Flying knee to Holtby's head in practice... apparently he's "okay".

Just okay?

Looking forward to an early rise tomorrow to watch the game tape delayed, would stay up and watch but the way this series has went the game might not finish until after 3am over here!

I have to think the Caps come out hard in this one, or they're done in the series. The Leafs have pretty much done the opposite of what I've expected all year, so you know...I'm going to call this a 7-2 blowout for the Buds.

Coming out hard hasn't been their problem. It certainly wasn't last game. I wonder what adjustments they'll make, if they do come out hard, to try to keep the Leafs from getting back into it.

I'm thinking the Caps win this one.  Did they ever lose 3 in a row all season?

Washington's losing streaks broken down:

x1: 0-4-0
x1: 0-2-1
x1: 0-2-0
x4: 0-1-1

edit: whoops, I was a dummy and wrote 0-2-2 in that last spot by accident.

I'd just like to see a team successfully defend a lead. Ideally, the Leafs, obviously, but, I just don't know if I can take 4 straight games going into OT.

The Leafs sure seem to be having a lot of fun.  The Caps, not so much.

Holy cow!  Did you guys see Ovechkin's interview?

http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/kadri-rat-komarov-getting-skin-ovechkin-capitals/

He called Komarov a "rat" and seemed to imply that he might be getting under his skin.  He also complained about the media putting too much pressure on the Capitals, asking them to back off.  Ovechkin looked nervous and uncomfortable to me.  I'm not used to seeing him like that.

Should be a great game tonight!  Go Leafs go!  8)

a loss would be logical but I don't know.  I think the leafs are trending in the right direction.

Man oh man, don't give them any ammunition Kadri. Keep to the generic hockey answer script and keep doing your thing.
