Caps vs. Canadiens 1-31-2008 Wrap Up

The Local Yokels:

(Com)Post: nose for net, A.O. recap, another A Night To Remember. Times.

The Neutral Observers: AP Wire.

The Other Side:

The Gazette: booted, "Russian Machine Never Breaks".

Random Thoughts:
  • First is was pleading for A.O. to come to Montreal, then it was bashing, now the Montreal Press is treating him like just another player who had a four goal night? I was expecting some cheapshots about the attendance.
  • While we're not exactly chasing Montreal and aren't likely to challenge them for the fourth seed, we've got to stop giving up the extra point. It is one thing if we scored in the final minute and then win the game in overtime. But to allow a game where we have a three goal lead to end up in overtime in the final minute of regulation is going to haunt us come April 6th.
  • Interesting defensive coverage on the game winning goal by Montreal. Leave the guy who leads the NHL in goal scoring and has already scored a hat trick alone in front of the net so you can go cover Jeff "Sergeant" Schultz... I don't have to see the entire game to award that play the "John "Coach's Pet" Erskine Bowles Boneheaded Play of the Game."
  • 52 down, 30 to go
