Pens vs Caps Round 2

Postby DistinctKickingMtn on Mon Apr 23, 2018 9:25 pm

Here we go again, and once again they have home ice. This time we might not have Malkin and Hagelin.

Honestly, it's not a match up I like this year. It is what it is though, so let's hope.

My guess is game one in Washington on Sunday at 3pm, NBC. I hope we have Geno and Hagelin. We need all hands on deck here. I think it's going to take 7 games this year and we're going to have to do it on their ice. This playoff format is a freaking joke.

Caps had game 1 reserved for Thursday so I would expect that then game 2 Sunday and then Tuesday-Thursday for 3 and 4 and 5 on a Sunday again.

Just skip the first six games and go straight to Washington for game 7.

Same old, same old.

9-1 all time against them. I too fear that it won't be our year, but who knows with this team.

We have had their number, but how many consecutive years can we continue to beat them? Then again, the road to the cup always has to go through them, and they always have home ice, and we always beat them, so let's go beat them again I guess.

This is the matchup I would have liked to avoid. Not because I think the Caps are any better than they were in either of the previous two seasons- in fact, they are definitely not. This is clearly the weakest Caps team out of the trilogy. It's just the law of averages that worries me. Beating them in 9 out of 10 series. Beating them in their own building all the time. All the game 7's going our way. Ovechkin NEVER getting past the 2nd round. Good lord, even the blind squirrel eventually finds a nut, right?

1st game seems likely to be Saturday, though the NHL could do it on Thursday(Friday the Wizards play in Wash so that's out) but why not make everyone wait as usual because hockey gets so real when it lasts until June?

You the play the cards dealt. This talk already that somehow because recent/past teams have beaten the caps this is the year to give back to them is bollocks. You cut the heart out- always.
If somehow the leafs win in boston, HNIC will want the leafs game saturday evening.
Thursday / Sunday for the pens?

Let's get it started. Will Trotz waiver on his goalie?

A voice of reason.

Holtby will start, but will get pulled at some point. Pens in 7.

Over/Under Tom Wilson games suspended: 1.5
Over/Under TJ Oshie embarrassing blatant dives/flops in the series: 5

Looking forward to the 2020-2021 season when Alex Ovechkin scores his 732nd regular season goal, overtaking Marcel Dionne, to become the player with the most goals to never win a Stanley Cup.

How about when will the first Pen be injured from a cheap shot? Guessing it will be a defenseman on a forecheck.

When will Niskanen take his first cross checking penalty?

What game will Orlov realize he's playing the Pens and become mortal again?

Will Sid make it to the second shift before the "Crosby sucks" chant begins?

Will Keith and Mike be gushing over the hard nosed, great Tom Wilson at the first intermission?

Pierre and Eddie don't even have to come up with new material. Just google April/May 2017 NHL playoff comments.

Orpik will check someone into/onto Holtby and injure him at some point...

Bad news all around. I expect this will mean neither Malkin nor Hags will be available... also, I was hoping to catch round 1 of the NFL draft. Ah well.

Worst part is Boston or Toronto don't have to play until Saturday. Why not Friday?

On the plus side, win this series in the same number of games or less than the other Eastern Conf series and you get an advantage with a longer break.
