    Penguins dig deep, find way to best Capitals in Game 2

    There’s a definite difference here. It might be as big as the four-goal gulf that separated the teams who skated Saturday at Verizon Center, a 6-2 Penguins victory in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference semifinal that gave them a 2-0 lead in this series.

    The Capitals are racking up shot attempts — 171 through two games — the way the Blue Jackets rang up hits. Same result, too. The Capitals outplayed the Penguins at the start and for stretches and look like darlings except when you turn your attention to the one stat that really matters — wins.


    It’s not all that dissimilar to when you take a bigger-picture look at these franchises, either.


    The Capitals have never won a Stanley Cup. They’ve been to one final. The Penguins, if they can figure out their starts, could become the first team to win back-to-back Cups since the Red Wings in 1997-98. With a 2-0 series lead, the thought of a ninth playoff series win in 10 tries against the Capitals is more than just smoke..........

    I think the Rainy City Bitch Pigeon fans double as Capitals fans, judging by all the bitching and moaning about the refs on the Caps' MB...

    I don't want to hear a damn word from Caps' fans about bad officiating. Maybe, just maybe, your team should just stop choking in the playoffs every year. (and yes, I say that with full acknowledgement that this series is only 2 games old.)

    True. They whine alot on Twitter.

    The Big Boss/Owner and his son, who is the President...as well as the VP at my work are Caps fans as well. I almost got sent (good naturedly) home wearing a Penguins jersey at Halloween a few years ago when he saw it. (I had no costume and the Office Manager said I got to wear something. She does payroll LOL)

The question part is, why doesn't she get blamed for playing the very next game fully knowing her head wasn't right and getting creamed into the boards by Hedman? Which is what really took her out of the game for almost an entire season.

    It's crazy that the Caps have never been in the conference final with Ovi.

    On a side note, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins just proved themselves to be the Washington Capitals of the AHL.... The Baby Pens won the MacGregor Kilpatrick trophy (best record in the AHL in the regular season) and just got bounced in the 1st round of the Calder Cup playoffs.

    Yes. I thought about this last night as the Caps replaced their goalie and still couldn't do anything.
