That shot from Green was amazing.... makes me wish we had someone that good from the point these days.

 

 

In due time my friend...

 

His name is Ryan Sproul.

Sproul said he tries to model himself after offensive defensemen like Washington's Mike Green or Los Angeles' Drew Doughty.

"Their offensive ability is something I try to bring into my game as well," Sproul said. "Nick Lidstrom's the same way. Being in this organization now with Nick being like that, I can learn so many different things from him and it's going to be nice to be playing with him in minicamp and hopefully in the future, I guess, if he's still around."

The Washington Capitals history of not showing up for Game 7 continues.  I think they've won exactly one Game 7 in the last 24 years now, and it seems that it's always by dropping a lead in the series beforehand.  What a disappointment Ovechkin and the Caps are this year, despite the exciting surge to end the season.

So it wasn't just Boudreau?

Wasn't that game 7 last year, when they beat Boston in OT?


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I decided to look it up and I was a little mistaken on their history: they've actually won three Game 7s in their history (franchise record 3-9), in 2012 against Boston, in 2009 against New York, and 1988 against Philadelphia.

Ovechkin led all forwards in ice time and had ONE shot on the evening. Wow.

No NHL team has lost more playoff series as the higher seed in the last 30 years than have the Caps (11 times),... or lost more series in which they led by two games (nine).

Well, along with this picture:

The Rangers were really struggling in that series, but the Capitals choking as usual really helped them out. King Henrick really showed up and I thought was the best player for the Rangers in the last 2 games.

 

Notice Mike Green in this game. He was aweful defensively. Ovechkin was silent for most of the series. This team has a lot of issues and Adam Oates has a lot of work to do to turn this team around in the playoffs. Too bad they are playing in a real division next year.

 

Boudreau was a big part of the problem, as his job as a coach is to prevent this kind of crap from happening. Boudreau is just a terrible playoff coach. In his post game after losing the series to the Wings he was talking about his thoughts on a LA and Anaheim series. I mean that shows a poor amount of focus and how he already was thinking past the Wings series before he beat us... no wonder the Ducks lost.


40 for life.
