u/fobmanx WSH - NHL 29d ago

GG. We played way too conservatively after taking the 3-2 lead and it bit us in the butt. Bruins top guys made some brilliant plays, ours didn't.

1-1 series and as I said I expect it to go 7. Gotta get one back up in Boston now.

8

u/z401 BOS - NHL 29d ago

The third goal from you guys was nutty. Hoping Rask can dial in a bit and help us with the softer goals. GGs, see you in boston.

1

u/fobmanx WSH - NHL 29d ago

Feel like both goalies gave up some soft ones. Anderson has had his moments but I really hope we can get one of our regulars in there now that it's a best of 5.

11

u/CityDweller19 TBL - NHL 29d ago

Lava hot on the outside, frozen solid on the inside. Like always. My dog is enjoying them now.

u/waffleking_ BOS - NHL 29d ago

you should watch the barstool video from their 2018 world series win. i don't know if it'll make you like them more or less... but damn. what a trip

u/GreatMisdirect1 SEA - NHL 29d ago

I'll check it out. I don't really hate them hahaa all in good fun!

u/BHisa NYI - NHL 29d ago

Bouch said "there are a lot of happy humans on that bench" after Marchard scored. LOL.

-44

u/sanbaba NJD - NHL 29d ago

Worst reffing I've ever seen. It's simultaneously soft and "tough", reactionarily/derelictly broken. Pure garbage game, Bs lucked into a win - it looked like the 3rd was GI and I don't think Bergeron ever got onside (sweet goal though). I don't care who wins this series I just think the Caps have been wildly overpenalized for not being tiny weaklings who play the grimiest, pure cheap and soft. If the Bs can ride this wave of luck then this game will definitely be remembered for the wrong reasons.

2

u/parkowork BOS - NHL 29d ago

You know what's funny, the only person that contacts Anderson on the 3rd Boston goal is his own guy. McAvoy clears him completely.

-12

u/fuckychucky TOR - NHL 29d ago

It's Boston. How are you just now learning this in 2021?

-11

u/sanbaba NJD - NHL 29d ago

Yup.

-8

u/fuckychucky TOR - NHL 29d ago

You should check out Leafs vs Bruins gm 2 2019. Or the Gregory and Colin Campbell connection. Or better yet, just look at the 2011 SCF. I loved that the Canucks lost but that series was a reffing disgrace.

-3

u/sanbaba NJD - NHL 29d ago

yup!

15

u/Enharmonic WSH - NHL 29d ago

I didn't have a problem with the 3rd goal, it was Sheary who supermanned into Anderson for no reason and Boston was just digging at the puck. Refs were pretty arse nonetheless.

4

u/waffleking_ BOS - NHL 29d ago

i agree about washington's 1st goal. was a tad weak in my eyes but it wasnt anything out of line with how the whole game was called.

11

u/Bound2Asgard BOS - NHL 29d ago

Caps were over penalized? Bruins had two penalties more than them?

8

u/parkowork BOS - NHL 29d ago

Well of course, shouldn't the other team ALWAYS be more penalized than the Caps?

6

u/Blindthide BOS - NHL 29d ago

One of the caps chucked McAvoy lol. How is that Gi.

3

u/8slider BOS - NHL 29d ago

Genuinely curious, what calls/non-calls did you have a problem with?

-4

u/sanbaba NJD - NHL 29d ago

All of the coincidentals, how many times did they wait until they decided there was some mystery embellishment to call on a Cap before admitting a Bruin had just committed a mandatory? Crap. Then the others were fair in that they were equally soft. I felt bad for both sides on each.

6

u/8slider BOS - NHL 29d ago

Yea definitely noticed a few times where it seemed like they deliberately wanted to keep it 4 on 4, but I would argue for the Marchand one at least that mantha was going anyways and Marchand was baited into a penalty. Definitely a few soft calls against the caps tonight, but I think the Bruins also had a couple bad ones too. Overall I thought it was relatively even in the end, but I’m obviously biased.

Didn’t think it was the worst game I’ve ever seen though

-4

u/sanbaba NJD - NHL 29d ago

Yeah in terms of imbalance I have to admit that was over the top of me. But in terms of the kinds of calls to be made or not made in the Playoffs? I was offended. Hall squatted on Carlson's stick that time. They were just so soft. And then obvious stuff like two handed chops being given the same laxity as the most absurdly dangerous-to-himself dive to ever have been possible. Y'all willfully blind.

4

u/8slider BOS - NHL 29d ago edited 29d ago

Idk man I think your hate for the Bruins is making you as blind as my fandom is lol. Maybe we should start reffing games, would probably do a better job than the guys out there right now.

Edit: I do think the calls maybe slightly went the Bruins way, but I think calling it the worst game ever is a reach

1

u/sanbaba NJD - NHL 29d ago

I can respect that :)

4

u/Bound2Asgard BOS - NHL 29d ago

Once. That happened exactly one time.

The embellishment was legit and the roughing coincidental in front of the net was questionable but not surprising.

Says the Devils fan

-1

u/sanbaba NJD - NHL 29d ago

I would, indeed, be embarrassed to realize how much your team resembles the Devils out there. Weak and divetastic. Note how Caps actually prevent your little pigeons from falling in the corners? That's because they know they will be penalized for your lacking talent. Embarrassing. But yes my Devils were like this. We're probably better than you guys this year, just lacking professionalism. You really have no room to talk.

“Look, I know my team perennially blows, but this team that finished four places ahead of mine in the same division, made the playoffs and is tied 1-1 in a brutal series blows just as bad as mine. Probably worse.”

3

u/CutMonster BOS - NHL 29d ago

I def. thought your Caps would score on one of those two back to back powerplays in the 3rd.

5

u/CapsDrago7 WSH - NHL 29d ago

So did I. We couldn't even enter the zone on one of those. I can't be but so mad considering our history with 2-0, but you guys simply won because you played to the end. We just lost it halfway through the third. GG and see you on Wednesday
