OK Caps, I get it.
The plan against the Penguins is to lose the first two games of your semi-final matchup, lull them into a sense of false security and then strike back and take the series in six or seven games. Very slick Washington.
It has to be the plan, right? While taking a tough loss in game one, they suckered Pittsburgh even more by playing hard in the first period in game two. They even went as far as having their goalie, Braden Holtby play so bad that he was taken out for the third period. I mean, he led the league with nine shutouts and was the league’s best goaltender last year.
Well Caps, the setup is perfect. I don’t think Pittsburgh has a clue. It’s time for phase two.
