Reader Question 1: How much does this team miss Dennis Wideman? They just don't play with the same confidence and balance without him. Also, any update on Wideman's injury situation?
Reader Question 2: All the Caps' goals last night were scored from close in. Why did it take until the third period for the Caps to play that way, when they keep talking about having to do that?
Reader Question 3: If the team were polled and they were to respond honestly, how many of them would say they prefer the old style of "Offense on Overdrive" as opposed to the defense-first style they've been touting this year? And, was it my imagination or did they switch gears to Offensive Overdrive mode for the third period until the game got tied, then switched back to defensive posture?
Reader Question 4: Nicklas Backstrom has been all but invisible in this series. Any comments or another perspective to bring to this view?
Reader Question 5: Any chance we see Mike Knuble in uniform on Saturday? The Caps definitely missed his presence on the power play.
Last Reader Question: What your view on Neuvirth's play? He seemed moving "slowly" between the pipes many times. Is that on purpose, but it seem part of the reason the fluke first goal was able to be scored was becuase he didnt get over fast enough and seal off the side?
