Let's keep this winning streak going, shall we?

It's already been announced that they're putting Ilya Samsonov in net...which one of the shutout twins goes for us?

At this point, keep this streak going...beat a Metro team...and keep the playoff pace up!

A win here would be monstrous and a loss wouldn't be that big of a deal. We need the points, but that won't change in the Metro however splitting the season series with the Caps is a win in my book. Let take 3 of 4 and show those idiot Caps pre game people that the Canes and not the Caps are who should be feared

The canes will need to scores more goals than the caps.  Lets win the rubber match for the Marley girl.

Time to cut these Caps down to size. A regulation win puts us within 7 pts of first. Not an easy task but a statement that we are coming after them.

We need our road swagger back.  What is it; two straight losses on the road and the includes an implosion vs Toronto. Hopefully, this three game winning streak we have, include consecutive shut outs will get our goalies going.  I know Mrazek will get the start but I would not mind if Brindy goes with Reimer.  He deserves it after that 41 save shut out vs LA and he beat the Caps in Washington this year and I think he has a pretty good record vs Caps in his career.

 

This is also a good chance to improve our Metro record of 4-8-1.  These next two games are vs WSH and CBJ.  Win them and be 6-8-1.  Hopefully the win vs Philly and winning 2 of the last 3 against tough metro teams will get the team going record wise vs the Metro.  Yes, they were at home but a win is a win.

This would be a major win. Not only is it the Caps on the road, but the intangibles are not in our favor. We are on a third in 4 while they are not. And they've lost two in a row including being pasted 5-1 by the lowly Devils in their last game, at home no less. Add in at least a bit of a rivalry game, and I have to assume we are going to see their A game, bounce back effort.

 

Of course that's a big part of why this would be a major win. 

 

The last two games we've been much better in the D zone, and this one will likely require a complete game, including good goaltending. But that's the kind of team that has a shot to win this one.

Sorry I didn't get it: why Washington Capitals is represented by a casino picture? 🤔

to sound like a jerk but this is bothering me a little. A Rubber match is the tie breaker or deciding game in a series. Since we have won twice and they have won once this is not the rubber match. 

 

Carry on😋

I look at this one as TT's one opportunity to show hockey why he should be in St. Louis instead of Oshie. Little dinged up, so a couple in the A column would suffice. And our 6 of 8 on them has flipped the dread factor over to their side since pre-playoffs and seasons before. Wanna see 7 of 9. oh wait.

"Samsonov hasn’t lost a start since November, and he’s currently riding a seven-game winning streak."  Hopefully he is ripe for the picking. Image result for ripe for the picking

Did Gardiner started playing better after being paired with Pesce instead of TVR/Fleury?

Yes but his bad play was not the fault of either TVR or Fleury, those guys played well paired with him. He just flat is playing better then we was before

I'm not blaming TVR abd Fleury. But IMHO adjusting to a new team/system took more time due to playing with frequently changing linemates.

Hamilton last year is a good example.  Some fans were all over him and now he's done a A LOT better this year.  It's why I'm not being hard on Gardiner like other fans have on here. 

 

Unrelated:  Washington has not lost 3 in a row all year.  I hope that changes tonight.  Hopefully we can get to Samsonov tonight.  Incredible he's only lost twice this year but both times have been at home.  I think to Colorado and Minnesota.

Wasnt our last win against them the first time they lost back to back in regulation?

Time to deliver them third loss in a row together with Samsonov's third. Go Canes!
