Once again, for the third straight game, I've seen absolutely no sense of urgency for the Capitals. None whatsoever.
I mean, just because the Caps are sitting atop the Southeast Division doesn't mean that they should set everything on "cruise" control these next 5 weeks of the regular season. You want to sit here and make the excuse Alex Ovechkin wasn't there tonight, and that's the reason they lost?? Fine.
I don't accept it.
No, what Bruce Boudreau needs to do is crack the whip these next 5 weeks...starting with this Sunday's rematch with the Penguins. Run their a*s*s*e*s into the ice every practice Friday and Saturday, and every practice from here on out.
Ovie, or no Ovie.
I want to see a Stanley Cup in the trophy case @ Verizon Center this year...and I don't care HOW it's done.
