Rob Carlin On The Capitals Letting Yet Another Playoff Series Slip Away Against The Penguins

Rob Carlin, analyst for Comcast Sportsnet Mid-Atlantic who hosts the pre and post game shows for the Washington Capitals game broadcasts, joined Ed and Rob to talk about the Capitals once again coming up short in a playoff series against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Rob started by talking about another slow start from the Capitals and Pittsburgh taking advantage saying “they came out with no sense of urgency, for the life of me I can;t figure out why you come out with Karl Alzner and Brooks Orpik on the ice at the same time but that’s what they did and Pittsburgh burned them…they carried the play and still lost, the Penguins had two shots in the second period and scored on both of them with one of them going off of Dmitry Orlov’s foot.”

When asked about Alex Ovechkin and his legacy if he never wins a Stanley Cup Rob said “Brett Hull and Steve Yzerman those guys didn’t win Cups until their careers were almost over, so you can’t write his legacy until it’s completely over…right now he is the guy who won all the scoring titles and is a great regular season player but he can’t get it done in the playoffs.”

The Caps season will be on the line on Saturday night when they host the Penguins at the Verizon Center in game 5 of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series.
