That is what Bruce Boudreau was saying during his diatribe as his team fell behind 3-0 in the 1st period.
Just three days after a brutal beating on Broad Street, the Capitals were looking at another blowout by the hands of the Atlantic Division-leading New York Rangers.
But this team is different than years past. This Washington Capitals team has only lost twice on three separate occasions, losing three in-a-row on of those times.
- The Capitals outshot the Rangers in every period and Alex Ovechkin outshot the Rangers top line (Naslund, Gomez, and Zherdev) 13 to 10.
- Viktor Kozlov has three goals in his last three games and is on track for his third 20-goal season.
- Tomas Fleischmann was drafted in the 20th round...12 picks from Mr. Irrelevant in my fantasy draft, and i still scoffed when he was selected. Who did I pick in the 20th round you ask? Well...two picks after Flash went, I picked...wait for it...wait for it...John Erskine. What's that you say? Oh, no I was not drunk...thanks for asking. The season that Tomas is having is unbelievable. He picked up his 12th goal on a pretty deflection of a Nicklas Backstrom slapshot (<
- Finally, a little mistake by the good folks at Yahoo! Sports:
Yeah we were down 4-1...but we were also down 4-0!
