Love Holtby, but Grubi has just been better. We have nothing to lose as we're not close to being the favorite this 'go round' - and we last had a 'hot goalie' in Net 20 years ago, when Olie the Goalie surprisingly took the Caps all the way to the Cup Finals.
Will be interesting to see what and how all of this unfolds. Let's Go Caps!
It is ironic that in our 'flying under the radar,' non-President's Trophy year, we get arguably the hottest club in the Eastern Conference in Round #1.
That said, we've been awfully hot in the final month and one-half as well.
Just 2 months ago, it looked like Tampa and Pittsburgh were head and shoulders better than the rest of the clubs in the East. But both have slumped in recent weeks and may not be quite so formidable when the playoffs get underway later this week.
Time will tell. There is tremendous parity in the NHL, in the Eastern Conference especially.
So much for ‘having the hot goalie’ theory. No team consistently fails in the postseason and breaks their fans’ hearts like the Washington Capitals. They languish in losing like no other franchise in pro sports. Sigh ...
Oh, and Prince Filip Forsberg coming up large with 2 goals in the 3rd period of the Preds’ win last night while Burakovsky took that brain dead penalty late in the 3rd that cost us the game? Yah - salt in the wound! Lol!

raypetty: From ESPN: Quinn runs crisp, reliable routes, has the top-end speed to challenge vertically, and his ball skills are his best trait. A bit of an underrated prospect who works best out of the slot, he grades out as a potential No. 3 receiver

raypetty: Kind of takes the place of a Wadley/Thompson type just not with the speed.
