12 points away from breaking Larry Murphy's franchise record for points (81). 20 to go to hit that 90-point mark. Would be the first NHL defenseman to do that since Ray Bourque in '94.
Caps are in big trouble. Call me crazy or tell me I'm overreacting to recent play, but I think they are currently more likely to be a first round upset, than a Stanley Cup finalist. Trade deadline acquisitions might change that.
An amazing achievement given all of the turnovers and shoddy defense in front of him for long stretches in those games.
Over his last four appearances, Braden Holtby has stopped 97 of 104 shots, posting a 2.08 goals against average and .933 save percentage during that span.
The injuries to Boeser and Ferland likely created some urgency for Vancouver to make a move. Tyler Madden (John's son) is a pretty good prospect playing at Northeastern.
THREAD TIME: Sports, man. It’s THE international language. I’ve been in Honduras the past few days for a friend’s wedding. We hired a driver to help us navigate the city and surrounding areas. Juan Carlos and Gustavo. Father and son. Great guys...
Oshie on starting games better: "You can’t say one word or write something on the board that will kind of get that going. That’s got to be the guys in the room here. Myself, O, Nick, John, Holts, all the leaders, I think it’s on us to have the boys ready and prepared to go.”
Oshie if Capitals are concerned about losing division lead (1 pt up on PIT): “We have no concern about anyone else. We’re obviously struggling a little bit to get wins and to play a full 60 minutes. But right now, that second part, playing a full 60 minutes, is our only concern"
Reirden said Caps D zone coverage has improved in past few games, but ... We’re getting players to the front of the net to defend better and then we’re not doing our job. We’re not hard enough around that area and we’re losing battles in that area."
