Caps @ Maple Thug Leafs 12-12-2009 Post-Mortem
Well, that stunk... Onto the Battle Damage Assessment...
- A.O. with a three point effort, one goal and two assists. He now has 37 points on the season and is now 17 points away from tying St. Calle Johansson for 7th on the Caps All-Time Scoring List with 474.
- Normally known for his passing ability, Nicklas Backstrom with two goals tonight.
- Alexander "Slappy" Semin may have registered only a single assist tonight, but he was the only Cap to finish with a plus rating tonight.
- Blowing a 2-0 lead on the road.
- While the Power Play went 1 for 3, it once again gave up a shorthanded goal.
- The Penalty Killers were 2 for 4 tonight and a big fat Thank You to Craig Laughlin for mentioning that the Caps had not given up a 5 on 3 goal this season, until tonight.
- While Slappy misfired on a number of chances himself, Brendan Morrrissonn missed a wide open net that could have really put this game away early. This is the third prime chance he's blown in the past three games.
- Many Caps fans love to beat up on Jose "Alvin, Simon," Theodore for not playing well, but tonight they got a good look at a goaltender not playing well as Michal "Bebe" Neuvirth laid a total egg tonight. Absolutely no big saves and a few goals he just should not have given up while allowing six on 36 shots.
