CSN Washington dot com. Gathered -- -- -- seven didn't record a point there's no retribution for comments made by Troy Brower who was a little bit much ado about nothing. Would you think of salmon's game -- tonight. He played well yeah it is team a short and defense they're missing three regular defensemen a couple of other guys are further their their -- guys in their scale. And he played good he had some great chances right off the bat but you know it was it's either feast or famine he was either gonna light show up and make you -- to. But the capitals did everything they could to keep them off the board as well. You know he had this chance early shorthanded beautiful pass by his line -- Then going -- trying to go crossbar and in there. But the -- for going after his stick all game long trying to keep the shots from getting to the front of the net seats and I think he's got a great shot. But once he gets his team lead at one in this game and what I think they're worried about what. Letting this guy get on the board anything that's exactly how you have the plane you don't have the playing physical you just gotta keep that puck from getting to that because that's how we hurt you. That breakaway early on really changes the whole game as he put that on in. The crowd gets a little deflated -- hoping maybe it'll deflated but hoping made that -- ends up with a second shot out now in the last seven game circus. -- and he made it look way too easy wasn't bouncing all over the place he was calm all game long one miscue early car on a pass. But here held his ground early and he didn't look flustered or you know -- -- player talking about earlier that's probably the only miscue we have all game. -- the missed quite that far but he was calm all game long out of it. Didn't have to move a whole lot what helped calm and relaxed he is on that one and just throw the behind the goal line very easy game for him tonight everything was in slow motion. Looks like he's got his Mo Jo back. So hole becomes through and how about the defense -- it a rocket of a shot. From John Erskine for his second year John -- want our young elephant gun I'm sorry forgot. John Carlson steps up and gets on Mike Green comes back in the lineup and everyone could just settle back into their role it's all part of. That's what you know one of the things about this is why it works well the coaches identified that the canes were short on defenseman and it's NHL experts defenseman. So they had everyone involved in the rush they were attacking a former and a five man waves. And it was time after time especially in the second period. After Erskine scored his goal everyone got a little greedy and they start getting up there and -- really controlled the second period and in the third period you have Mike Ribeiro got five blocked shots tonight this is a total team win. Everyone doing their part the helped -- -- get the shot -- not that he needle a lot of help tonight but everyone did their part complete team went. So Tampa Bay loses tonight Carolina loses the caps depending on what Florida does tonight. Could be in last place and still only four points out of first place in a weak Southeast Division again tomorrow night caps and flyers right here in Comcast sports net. At 730 round rank on the -- back to you about the -- CSN Washington dot com it.
