And almost certainly, series.

If a couple guys decide to stop seeing who can be the worst player on the ice contest we should be fine.

Too much globetrotter euro hockey, not enough work.

Well guys. We won can definitely win two games in a row. So don’t let this ruin the rest of your weekend.

Caps in 6. Guess I was right. **** Letang. **** Murray. Everyone else has had mistakes but those 2 single handledly cost us this series.

They refuse to shoot. Too much puck handling and too many passed. Kessel visible for all the wrong reasons.

Pens of the last 2 seasons don’t lose these games taking a lead into the third. Tonight and game 3 are games they don’t lose last 2 seasons.

Letang, Murray. Horrible

Only way to win this series now is with a game 7 with Wilson back in DC.

It would be a perfect fit with the Caps-Pens history but I just don't see it.

Can we all be realistic for a second. Does anyone on this board think either the pens or caps will get passed tampa??

Most of our mistakes are mental. Not the focus of prior teams.

Got confused, thought he was on the power play with Murray still in the net.

Force this back to Washington for game 7 and then we’ll see what happens.

It’s never the other team that beats us. It’s always is shooting kirselv s in the foot under Sully.

See you back in Washington. Fans and caps will be very tight. Series isn’t over.

Murray needs to be better and Letang needs to be traded in the off season.

Well, this team has been here before, but it doesn't seem that this team has that extra gear and desire to end Washington.

I hope we see a retooling of this defense in the off season. Murray hasn’t been as good as he needs to be but the defense isn’t giving him any help.
