Game 3 Caps @. Canadiens 4-19-2010 Post-Mortem
So much for the Montreal Home Ice Advantage... Onto the Battle Damage Assessment...
- Brooks "and Dunn" Laich loses the face shield and picks up the game-winning-goal. The only one the Caps scored from distance tonight.
- Boyd Gordon returns to the lineup and gets a shorthanded goal to start all the scoring by taking the puck to the net and whacking away at it with some help from Mike Knuble.
- Semyon "The Saviour" Varlamov came up with his best game since getting injured back in December. Now the goaltender controversy gets really interesting.
- The Penalty Killers had some extra work tonight but ended up going a respectable 4 for 5 tonight.
- Mike "BEAM ME UP" Green and Jeff "Sergeant" Schultz both played much better tonight that they did on Saturday. Pity that nobody will give either of them credit for it.
- Though the Penalty Killers weren't perfect, they did blow the shutout in the third period with some lackadaisical play. And the sad part is, it was the only time it happened during the game.
- We're not surprised that Thomas Fleischmann has gone MIA, as a matter of fact we expected it and he as usual blew a prime chance tonight but Alexander "Slappy" Semin has to get on track. Eric Belanger proved that Brendan Morrrissonn wasn't the problem on that line.
- Not counting the 3 second Power Play, the Caps were 0 for 6 on the Power Play tonight. Lots of nifty passing but only 5 shots on goal.
- The Montreal fans classy as ever as the Frogs boo the Star Spangled Banner once again.
