So once again we leave the Verizon Center asking why, why oh why.

Anyway....

At least Detroit will advance. While it's an uphill climb I'd love to see them beat Chicago. Here's to Boston for beating john brophy's Maple Leafs. Worst case I'll get behind Ottawa.

Dammit the CAPS are out. Just once I wanna see Ovi, Brooksie, hendricks and Chimera and the boys hoist up a Stanley Cup.

I hear you. Hard to figure quite what's wrong with the Caps. The whole always seems to be less than the sum of it's parts.

Bet Semin is smiling somewhere and saying "well, you can't blame it on me anymore!"

Semin was at home watching the game ;)

It's too bad. Ovi actually had a season befitting a star player, and good playoff to boot.

Sorry, JediG, I have to disagree.

Ovie had what 16-18 of his regular season goals against very weak opponents and how many in key games and against strong opponents? He is paid to score and he did not after the first 2 games. Correct me if I am wrong as I really only watched all of Game 6/7 of the Rangers-Caps series, but Ovie seemed to be almost 'unleashed' - a bit of out of control play at times and not really working with his linemates really well. He seemed interested in skating around a lot...but not being more efficient. Of course, I could be wrong.

In the end, he showed effort...but he is paid to score and lead as well.

P.S. Hey, my two teams are already out. : (
