Nabby Dances, Caps Win: 4-1

What on God's green Earth was he attempting to do on that save? We'll probably never know, but man was it pretty. After Nabby thwarted an early shot by Ovechkin with his glove hand, he and Ovi seemed to exchange some playful words and a laugh. Then Ovi had fun the rest of the night. #20 for San Jose? Not so much. Here are a few of my observations from last night:
  • I was really skeptical about the Ovechkin-Morrison-Knuble line, but man did they have a solid night. Knuble made the heady plays, Morrison moved the puck up ice quickly, and Ovi's all good.
  • Brian Pothier hasn't looked as sharp these last few games.
  • No bad penalties, and I thought Quintin Laing looked really solid last night.
  • Alex Semin had a few really pretty takeaways, and I agree with Alan May that Sasha had an overall solid game last night. I also thought that Shaone Morrisonn continued to play physically strong and effective in his own zone.
  • Varly's glove looked pretty solid last night, eh? It's a shame that seeing it had to be at the expense of Theo's back, considering that JT60 had played really well so far this season. Get better soon Theo.
Kudos Go To:

Brendan Morrison. The guy has just seemed like he's out to prove himself all over again, and he really seems like a quiet leader that the Caps need. Someone that plays with a lot of heart on the top two lines is a big plus right about now, and B-Mo fits in well with the team's attitude and chemistry. Let's hope this is only the beginning. That signing is looking like a pretty good bargain at this point...
