IceCap, what's your take on his performance?

He had to step up. No other way to say it. You need everyone firing on all cylinders if you want to best a team as talented as the Bruins, and Matthews just wasn't.

Even though I've been bandwagoning this team since May 31st, 2011, I wasn't prepared for how emotionally invested I'd be in this series. I want, no, need the Jets to destroy the Predators and I will be an inconsolable mess if they can't. They can do this. Rinne has been fallible. Subban can be an idiot. Johansen is a fat lazy turd. It can happen.

Sticking to my guns on 3 of the 4 series based on my original bracket, then the 4th I was 0-for so I can get creative

Washington isn't messing around. 1-0 Capitals 17 seconds in.

 

They don't want to be wiped out by Pittsburgh once more.

This has been an excellent game so far. Early goal from Kuznetsov was get outta your seat exciting but the goalies have been terrific. 1-0 after 2 even though it could easily be 4-3.

2-2. This feels very familiar.

3-2.  I guess wanting the Capitals to win this match-up once is asking too much.

I think the only reason this can still be surprising is because the Caps find new ways to utterly destroy their fans hope when they play Pittsburgh.

 

Two-goal lead in the 3rd and it took five minutes to blow it and fall behind. Nuts.

Can we get a “sinking depression following the realization that you are a Caps fan” entry next year for the GTOV?

Not be the Capitals

 

When the game tying goal is being blocked with the inside of Matt Murray’s blocker, it’s hopeless.

I truly believe that it would take Crosby or Sullivan or some other major Penguins leader to come out with bulletin board material the level of “it doesn’t matter what we do or how poorly we play, we’ll always beat them because they’re the Caps and they can’t do crap against us” for Washington to go super saiyan enough to win the series. And even then Crosby would net a Game 7 PP GWG in OT because Tom Wilson punched Matt Murray in the head while 3 officials were looking straight at him.

Halak WAS playing for the Caps at one point.
