They look awfully rough beyond that top line, and Johansson is a borderline top 6 imo he just plays with two world class players. I'd assume those 3 are responsible for 75% of the entire teams offense at minimum.

Our lines don't look too much better. Sure they are really fun to watch at times, and the kids will be a force in two years, but they can also be very inconsistent as we have seen. Although they have been playing very well as of late. Wings take this one 4-1 though, z, sauce, goose and sheahan with goals

That is tough to disagree with, likely why both teams records are so similar as well. I think when healthy our offensive lines are stronger overall but as it sits above with Datsyuk and Franzen out it's looking like a pretty balanced match up. 

 

I'm taking Wings in another heart twisting OT/SO game, 4-3 final. Zett notches a pair, Alf and Sheahan potting the other two.

A win could create some sort of distance between the two teams, I expect a very desperate Caps club tonight.

Holtby is having a rough go of it this season, and Green still out for the caps. Wings show up and they can get this much needed sweep, LGW!

I love sunday morning games. I get to watch hockey plus have a full Sunday, and the Super Bowls is today. So an awesome sports day.

I still don't get why Alfie is on the third line. He's been consistently our best player not named Zetterberg or Datsyuk. You'd think Babcock would want to load up on top.

I don't think it reflects negatively on Alfie, if that's what you're wondering. I think it gives our bottom-six some teeth, allows Babs to be slightly evil with his match-ups, etc.

Great GDT, Paulie, thanks!!   I am hoping the Wings will overcome a day-break time start and the kids will win this one.  I am SO ready for the Olympics to be over, so our top players will come back and not save themselves for the big show.  We need help.

 

Go, Wings!!

Zetterberg for Beagle, straight up.

I was just going to say Engblom.

I hate to say it but I would rather listen to Pierre over Engblom any day.
