CC: Great post, right on! I'd like the help of your readers, though. Last night on Comcast after the game, Lisa Hillary, experienced hockey commentator and insightful analyst that she is, made a statement that the Caps had been outplayed the first two periods last night as well. My suggestion is that her recent pop-up on the Caps website be trashed for this SOOOO Obviously wrong statement. Please post a comment to Caps owner Ted Leonsis on his blog Ted's Take if you agree and support the position. I feel strongly the only reason the Caps didn't score at least two in the first and at least one in the second was Lehtonen's play and if it weren't for him the score would have been 10+-3 for the Caps. RESILIANCE was the word last night for the Caps the entire team played that way and until Backstrom's tying goal got to Kari Lehtonen so did he. Twenty-three shots in a period is an interesting way to play defense and I love it when these guys execute Boudreau's system so well. Ovie gets number 6 and Backstrom gets two goals in the third; Green sets up two super plays; the Federov line though goal-less was awesome at times as well; and Gordo gets number 6 to ice it with seconds left. Anyone who wasn't drained (in a good way) at the end of this one, after watching doesn't know what good hockey is all about. Best of all NONE of Bettman's silly changes affected the outcome - take that you silly NBA wanna-be. LETS GO CAPS!!!!!
