3/20 @ Capitals - I'm Not Even Worried

Postby cdanew » Tue Mar 20, 2018 11:07 am

Spezza out with back injury. Ritchie also out. McKenzie on the way to save the day! D\

Just bench Spezza permanently. He simply takes up space and turns the puck over out there now.

Let's not try out Hintz or anything... no, McKenzie will surely lead to us winning.

Hopefully McKenzie doesn't make it in time so the Stars have to go with 7 D.

Fun fact: the only Stars left who played with Niskanen are Benn and Kari.

Why do the Stars bring up a 27 yr old Curtis McKenzie, a life long ahl player? Rather than a young player?

A Hitch-Trotz Cup Finals would be a war crime.

Not that either of them will ever, ever, ever get to one, but you know. Theoretically.

Uh.... I know Kari sucks and all, but it sure looks like the puck changed direction.

I think they should fire Nill, Hitch and company right now just to add insult to injury.

This period looks indistinguishable from Lindyball. Lazy passes, lazy skating, every shot against either a juicy rebound or a goal.

At least they scored goals playing Lindyball, they just let in twice as many. Playing hitchball we're lucky when they score 2 goals. I can't stand Lindy or Ken. Boring coaches that have 0 enthusiasm

I’m impressed with how well Johns and Honka have done switching sides. They’ve been very fluid about it.

Jason Arnott would be impressed with Jamie's floating. He's getting geared up for the home stretch.

I mean, I know it’s Ovechkin, but Kari and unscreened point shots don’t mix.

They sure didn't last season.

When Jason Spezza and Patrick Sharp still had a pulse two seasons ago they did.

Welp, this one is over. We've scored 4 goals twice in the last 20 games (and happened to lose both of those games). We ain't getting to 4 tonight.

That might be the first time Jamie Benn has beat someone with speed this entire season.

Last year should’ve been our year, but good god all those injuries robbed us of a great season, and instead we had guys like Korpikoski filling our lineup.

Yeah. Last season was full of serious injuries to important players. Those same excuses don’t exist for this season.
