"C. Where tonight in overtime, The Washington Capitals defeat the Boston Bruins by a final score. Of breeding, too. They take a one game to none Lead in this best of seven East Division First round Stanley Cup playoffs, Erie's Brian Hayward simply put a whale of a hockey game. A terrific hockey game tonight. You know, it is interesting because Alex Ovechkin at times looked Maura interested in being the physical Alex Ovechkin than the goal, scoring Alex Ovechkin. And if I'm the Boston Bruins right now, the thing that stands out for me on the bad side of things Would be the play of the creaky line because we heard so much about Taylor Hall and David Krejci and the chemistry they had and how dangerous they had been down the stretch for the Bruins. They were all minus two on that line tonight, and they did not generate very many good scoring chances, and I go back to the very first shift of the game where Alex Ovechkin completely runs rate over top. Of David Krejci. Did that send a message. I think it did. And David Krejci was quiet in this game. They need him to be more impactful moving forward in this serious they need Taylor Hall to be more impactful. On the defensive side of things. I thought both both teams got terrific performances by virtually every single member of their Defense Corps. Both goaltenders were solid. That's the one thing that stands out for me. Austin needs more from the creature line. CREDIT Washington This is a team that's best known for their offensive capabilities and their explosiveness, but they really shut down the perfection. Lina's well tonight. Not many great scoring chances in general for the Boston Bruins in this hockey game, All told, And it was the perfection line that had dominated the season Syriza between these two teams, so the game plan Peter Laviolette. Tighten the gaps on them. Be physical with them early really worked in this game. Brad Marchand did not get a lot of clean opportunities, and those long stretch passes that the Bruins air known for when the perfection line is on the ice. They didn't materialize in this game. Part of that was because there was so much pressure on the Bruins defenseman. They couldn't get the puck in their hands when they were skating a top speed so they were neutralized somewhat. You know that line's coming back in this series? I mean, what a game. This was. We expect that this is gonna be along Syria's this game number one I thought played out perfectly because it really could have gone either way. Yeah, as advertised for sure, And it'll be interesting to see a to least for now, here in Washington for Game one. That crazy line was a match up against the Ovechkin line. We'll see if that continues where Bruce Cassidy is concerned, Brian, this is Game one of our Stanley Cup coverage and what a great start if this is any indication. Looking forward, T doing it again here, and we will do it again. Real soon. Great job tonight. Great working with you, as always. Thanks that they say it's a different season.

"And it's kind of fitting that we we talk about it in this week with the whole spectacle of Ovechkin situation, Washington Carolina. What did you? Think watching that what I think watching it. It's uncomfortable to watch someone get hurt. Like that in the fight. I'm I've never been one. That's clutch the pearls about a hockey fight as unless someone's getting jumped or unless I mean, we've all seen hockey fights. And you know, one of the the big ones for historians are is the Dave Schultz del Ralph which should've been called off. Well, before it went on, you know, past the point where it's an entertaining hockey fight. I looked at it as a young hockey player who made a mistake and got big dog by Alex Ovechkin I'd uncomfortable as it was the outcome. I'm not upset that that was a fight in the NHL where you know. I mean, if you challenge somebody anywhere in that happens. That's what happens you, you have to know what you're doing. When you do it. The one thing I don't get about. All this is that Ovechkin has said that he was challenged and vast. And Rodber numerous answer the day after was well, let's just say there's two different stories going on out there. So I don't know what the truth is. I'm assuming it's somewhere in the middle. Someone will ask fetched cough about the number one thing is I'm glad to hear. He sounds like he's okay. That's number one. But again, the, oh, I mean, I always remember I grew up with, you know, there are consequences for your actions. That's what my parents always told me. And you know, like if you bait someone and you lose out because of it. It's your fault. To some of questions on Twitter, hashtag ask thirty one from Kyle Frizzell. Hey, guys, we hear the term of players coach. But would you say there's a players GM in the league currently players GM. I've seen GM's get burned by being quote unquote to loyalty players bardy Lombardia. Mike Richards is the one most recently comes to mind right away. Lombardi. Sure did. And Marion Gabric was he signed after they won the Cup. And you know that that contract didn't work out for them as a general manager. I think you almost have to have be detached Burkey when he was GM really tried to be a player's GM in some some guys and other guys know, he has certain codes the trade. Griffis freeze before the actual there were there were things that he did that drove other players, absolutely bananas and agents bananas. I think when you're in charge of their futures. It is very very difficult to always be player friendly. I think what happens the most is that some guys look at players who've done something for them in terms of the way they played and they try to do favors for that player. We've all heard the stories you have I have about general managers that do a player a favor by getting him out of that market. Or if you have to make a trade send them to somewhere where it's good for them. We've all seen humanitarian trades. Oh, this isn't a hockey trade. This is a humanitarian whose a big one in baseball last year. Stephen Scotty, Saint Louis to Oakland when his mother was ill. Okay. From JJ. Hank are the pens doomed to the same fate as Chicago in L A after Cup wins. It's possible. I mean, we talked about this a lot earlier in the podcast.

All right with the success of Columbus. Will we see more GM's become more bold and aggressive at future trade deadline's men? I hope so Elliott, well, I really hope so too. And the other thing too is they beat the team Tampa Julian breeze made the decision not to add the deadline. So you you've got the two extremes in that situation to deadline deals and the two headliners have worked out Matt shayna marks don't the thing about the.

I think that's a very fair way to look at it. And I just think everybody I've been waiting for something to happen. There teams where you sit there and say what's going to happen here? And there there and Edmonton, and I have no proof or no way of knowing if they would have any interest in Joel Quenneville, but there's zero doubt the teams are reaching out to Joel Quenneville and saying what are you thinking? Here. You have a sense of what Joe Quinn villas thinking, you know, Nick on the show last Saturday night said he wants to coach this year. I think Nick would be right. But I do believe it comes down to the situation that he wants to be a situation where team has a chance to win. Or something. That's good for family. Chris is beyond headlines article on Sunday brought up Detroit because his mother lives in the Windsor area. You know, I think that would depend probably on the direction that Detroit chooses to go. And where it goes. But if you can convince Joel Quenneville that he's going to a situation where he's a chance to win. I believe Knicks right that he'll consider coaching this year before we get to our special guests, Mike Lee of octagon former NHL goaltender clocks boards caught me this week..
Capitals open Stanley Cup defense with 7-0 rout of Bruins
"The ice. Alex ovechkin. The reigning Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals picked up right where they left off beginning. Their title defence with a seven nothing thrashing of the Boston Bruins in their season opener. After watching the franchise's first Stanley Cup banners to the rafters TJ. Oh, she opened the scoring just twenty four seconds in. And if Guinea Kuznetsov scored the first of his two goals a minute and a half later to get the route

"Now, while this was a great story and for the it was great for the NHL as a whole. I don't really know that anyone thought the Golden Knights where a team that was going to be reckoned with just yet. I see a lot of people saying they're still Stanley Cup contenders frankly, I don't see it. They were a story, the Washington Capitals. On the other hand, that's a hockey team and a darn good one. So Greg, he makes a bold claim here by saying the Stanley Cups going to see a pair of new teams, essentially giving me to teams and Tim taking the field. That's fine, whatever. I don't even need to teams. I'm gonna. Make my argument using just the capitals team. You can take the other twenty nine, Greg, I just knew the capitals. You just give me all. I need to win this round with that team. You've given me the ammunition to take you down and I'm going to do so. See you're acting like I stack the deck against you, and that's fine. I mean. Hockey is obviously much more of an interest of mine than it is yours. So it is. It is a little bit stack that way. But when you talk about the teams that you are defending, you're talking about the Stanley Cup champions in a team that revamped even though they're an expansion team, they added veterans, pulse, Tasmania, max patch, ready, but here's the problem. They're not catching anybody by surprise anymore. A guy like William Carlson who before last year, his most goals in his career was nine in eighty one games, two years ago scored forty three goals last year. It's just not going to happen. I'm not saying that he's gonna fall off and go back to that eight or nine goal tally before three is a ton, a ton of goals. It seems like almost impossible that he's going to get back to that number and for the capitals for all the partying that they did. Once they won the Stanley Cup, you just get that inkling that this year might be that letdown year. Will this be the first year that Alex Ovechkin starts to just fade a little bit. It's tough. It's tough to tough to say, but father. I'm always wins. It's not forget that Brayden Hopi was excellent in the Stanley Cup final, but he was shaky towards the end of the season. There was a lot of calls for Philip group. Our to become the starter for the capitals based off his performance. Listen. There's plenty of of argument to say that, hey, of course, that those two teams aren't gonna make it, but it's more about the specifics of those two teams and their reason why? Oh, Gregory Gregory Gregory. I see the points you're making. I just, I just don't agree. So 2017 saw the penguins become the first team in almost twenty years to win back to back Stanley Cup championships, and I think that's well within reach of this Washington Capitals team. Let's start with the obvious they won in dominant fashion last season and managed to keep their team together. I think that's the most important thing that includes resigning Norris trophy finalist. John Carlson for eight million a year. It was a smart all season for the defending champs. Starting with the deal that sent a fleet, grew our to, and we'll end Brooks over to the Colorado Avalanche. The caps knew that Colorado is going to buy out opera and they managed to bring them back afterwards. They did lose Jay beagle to Washington that hurts, but they have the talent in place to replace him without missing a beat strangers. It sounds their biggest quote, unquote. Loss of the off season may end up being a blessing in disguise that was former coach, Barry trots leaving for the islanders. This was a guy who was losing that locker room anyway, in may have been fired. If not, for the teams, improbable run this season Todd Riordan's going to be a fine replacement for him. Cohesiveness in sports is the most underrated element that people miss when evaluating teams in the capital's bring back championship club with all of its important elements intact. That, sir, is the recipe for another Stanley Cup championship. Listen, that's fine cohesiveness and all that. I've seen tons of title teams bring back guys who were superstars or contributors and spend tons and tons of money maxing out their cap space and stretching those wallets very thin only to fail in future attempts. But here's the point. There's so many other teams, and that's the fun thing about the NHL..
