01:20 PM ET 05.09 | The Washington Capitals will apparently be without the service of froward Martin Erat for the foreseeable future. After sustaining a wrist injury in Game 4 on Wednesday night, the club has recalled Joey Crabb and Tom Wilson from the Capitals' American Hockey League affiliate, the Hershey Bears. Head coach Adam Oates has already stated that Erat will miss Game 5 but has yet to determine who will replace him in the lineup. Erat is expected to be evaluated on Thursday.

He looked like he was in agony after that play. It might be a break

He can thank Ovechkin for it.

"Joey Crabb" Love that name. Sounds like a gangster or something.

:)

Hank likes when he misses the net and it goes all the way around the boards and down the other end

Maybe. But Ovi was trying to save the play. And the penalty on him was absolutely atrocious.

A lot of questionable calls on both sides in that series.

I think you're right. Tough luck for Erat.

Wouldn't want to get in a scrum along the boards with him.

He took a big run there, if it's not charging what is it?

In his typical hot dog fashion he over did it and hurt a teammate.

In fact I thought it was great to see 2 penalties on the same team on the same play for once.

Nothing pisses me off more than having a delayed penalty and the offending team gets away with a couple more while trying to regain possession...

Soon to be followed by Martin Up.

So it's penalty to make contact with the player on the puck? He didn't leave his feet. He didn't hit him from behind. What made it a penalty? It was a good hockey play.

All that stuff can still be a charge, he came from a long way away skating hard the whole way.

I guess we need Canuck to post the video because I pulled it up again on You Tube and Ovi came across in front of Stephan, both were reaching for a loose puck (Stephan did not have control at that point) and the point of contact was Ovi's body to Stephan's elbow-forearm and he went down.

Yeah, Ovi has great speed but there is no way that should be called charging.

Refs must have a lot riding on their bets.

Charging works for me. And because of it his teammate is out.

Even better.

I agree. There have been atrocious calls on both teams as you said. Neither team has had a series advantage because of them so far.
