The Capitals won Game 5, hats off to them. They were hungrier then the Flyers more often then not. Game 6 will be Monday night.
Did Ovie recieve a memo from Sidney to tell him to dive more? For a player will awesome talent its a shame he now has to resort to diving. It takes away from his game and respect all the other players have for him.
Even with the Capitals winning Game 5, they only one by one goal. Yes, a win is a win but truthfully I expected if they were going to win they would do a lot more damage. They should thank all the hockey gods for all the power plays. If it wasn't for them, the series would be over.
I'm thankful that Hockey is on Network TV but seriously folks regardless if you are a Capitals or Flyers fan you just witnessed a truly biased all around performance by Network Announcers. I even muted the TV it was so bad and even asked the people around me who are not true Hockey fans and they even asked me what was going on with the people talking. They thought there were two teams playing not just the Capitals.
I haven't seen but I have read and heard about what Marty did with Sean Avery and I have to tell you that I would've done the same thing. What Avery has done with all of his antics is horrible for the game. Regardless if it was unique and creative, there should be a respect factor but I don't think he understands what that word means. The Devils need to find a better backup to take some of the work load off of Marty next year so he could be fresher in the playoffs. Some of the goals he let in have been very weak.
I have stated this time and time again, I'm all for hard hockey but the last thing I like to see in any series are the refs making an impact in the game. I relate this to Baseball, when the game is over and you realize how fun and hard fought the game was between the two teams, without constant umpire interaction. Almost like the umpires were invisible to say the least. When was the last time you could say that about any playoff game?
Have a good night everyone...
