Caps @ Panthers 3-30-2007 Post-Mortem
My desire to do this post is directly proportionate to the effort displayed by both teams in regulation. Onto the Battle Damage Assessment...
- I'm curious as to how the War Room in Toronto could come up with "inconclusive" on the review of the Caps third goal. As it turns out, that cost us the game because that puck was in. Barely, but it should have counted.
- I think we can now safely say that the latest obstruction crackdown is history.
- For a team needing every single point they can get to make the playoffs, the Panthers certainly didn't play like one.
- Brent Johnson inspires zero confidence in goal.
- If you ever needed a clearer example of how the OT loss has moved the boring hockey from the OT period to the third period, tonight was a prime example.
Even clearly "playing out the string" like they did tonight you can see that the Caps have more talent that they are currently being given credit for. I know I sound like a broken record here but what this team needs more than anything else is maturity and that doesn't come with high-priced splashy free agent signings.
