Caps OT: Can Olesky make an impact?
Don't don't don't don't don't don't don't. And sometimes it's. It's. Welcome to caps OT presented by pivotal plays -- normally here with Jill Sorenson -- not. Who's your pivotal player tonight. Well Steve Alexi was incredible tonight in their seven goals he scored none of them. But he was just a force and that's something that this blue line needs. When you had diners can throwing his body around everyone XX expects that. But when you have a guy like Steve Alexi just crushing guys which he did tonight I I -- three huge. Glass rattling hits. That back is a team a huge -- and it's a division rival. One pound instincts and you wanna send messages and he sent one tonight so I thought that was it he's -- pivotal player of the game. I'm sure they're there are many to go around tonight but you be mine. And I love it John Erskine John Erskine called him a physical presence that you know that are -- -- of them another one of those out there. Alright so in the caps first eleven games -- 281. In their last eleven games that they displayed their -- and three what is that different. Well you know Adam -- was talking that this early in the season he says let's not count take ten straight losses if we keep playing the right way. They didn't have to take ten straight losses but they were playing the right way and I kept saying that runs 281 it was hard to believe that but I kept saying this seems -- At the right things and it'll come around the goals are coming. And I think he started seeing better goaltending. So everything is falling in place they couldn't keep looking at the standings because even after they were 73 you know they were in last place. So I think the key with this team is to not look at the standings don't get caught up in trying to catch. The Southeast Division leading Carolina Hurricanes it probably won't happen. But they need to look at the teams directly above them and I think with a strong weekend. This team could be right back in the playoff hunt maybe within a point or two of the playoffs by the end this weekend which is incredible considering where they started. And it took -- -- rights -- thank you thanks for watching caps OT. CSN Washington dot com.
