Wed, 6 Mar 2013|
Tony Amonte joins Sports Tonight to give his opinion on how much blame Dougie Hamilton gets for the final 2 goals by the Capitals.
We're thirteen 31 to go with a hurt right down the middle Mark Johnson the next car I Bradley. Please god lord of the nice glove side on hold me to give the Bruins a one nothing lead in the first period. Well I felt things got started for the Boston Bruins -- Marchand Brad Marchand so hot that even score shorthanded on a -- shot which is exactly what that was sort of update joins us here. In studio -- arrested a second but how well those last two goals. By the Washington Capitals Tony Todd Hamilton. Is on the ice for both of them sort of right in front of a -- ball but -- all love what he's bought this team offensively and he's really already a skilled. Offensive defenseman in the NHL defense has a ways to go. What could get done differently on these two play if you put any of the blame on him. A little bit of the blame you -- He you have to take into account he's a nineteen year old kid as well still he's only nineteen years old front soon to be money but. He's got to make mistakes young guys you make mistakes that's why they've got -- playing with Dennis Seidenberg. This one goes off as me. Nine times out of ten that hits is these days in front of him he clears the puck out. But the winner is the one that really worries me Eric -- comes down the ice beats both defensemen Seidenberg. In Hamilton. -- between them you just don't see that happen very often against the Bruins. This is the Bruins team that knows how to protect the lead they know how to win in the third period when they're up one goal. They never lose games this has happened twice in a row now. I know they are concerned I know they need to go out there. And Julianne is definitely address this was -- something about schedule things are gonna get a little more -- anything worth it's getting it's getting to be away whereas they just haven't. Played filming enough games. Thus far this schedule is really gonna pick up there's going to be a time travel kind of back to back games and it's getting harder -- again -- -- -- guys. You know that expression they got put on their heels I think you'd see it on those two plays they were on their heels and Washington woke up in the second period took the game to them. And that's very much -- Bruins where the rest of the game now they offensive chances in the third period Sagan what high the last sort of learned something from British properly and and not you know more Jerry likes that -- side glass little boy an opportunity. -- the road get a power play it too pleasant change but Tony don't convert on that so overall came on the heels. You put the goalie on that does it look like too -- a little bit on his. Gil and these late games that you yeah yeah he's got to come up with a big save here -- there I think that that -- game tire was the one he really need to make to -- on. Wolf he comes down and puts it between his legs. Took it just needs to step up you need that one big saves that's gonna change the momentum the whole game is gonna carry the Bruins. But I I think it started before that started the second period. The Bruins get back at their heels a little bit gave Washington a little bit of room to skate and when you give a team from the skate they're gonna hurt just. And they did they clawed their way back into the game made it three so and then eventually. Got that game tire in the game winner in OT. You know you -- and I think it's going to be an affair with two great in that you point to Thomas in the year he had which was a magical year and it was just one of those things. But -- Felder said. When you wanna be called Little League goalie when you wanna be paid like an elite goalie in when you want a long term extension. What do you think to could can do do you think the Bruins should invest in him right now we just tie him up or would you wait and see I think. You gotta wait and see I think he played a wait and see game see what he can do for this club obviously they're coming off a season where they were. 38 and all -- going into the third period when they had the lead -- this team just didn't give up leads. Yes it did have to do with -- with Tim Thomas. Obviously you have Doug Hamilton in there now but. I consider him a better defensive player than Thomas Avalanche. You know back like that I was so that's -- I thought we don't you usually. I don't know yeah. I don't agree about. Let you know you'd take volleys. Things into. It to a come in and Tuukka Rask yes he's going to be in the microscope he needs to prove you wanna be a big goalie. He will be proving you win the big game I'm sure -- microscope as a team with Stanley Cup aspirations you can't have average goaltending in this day and age. And so the pressure is on him if you want to be that guy he's got to be that guy. Alexander Ovechkin what to think it has and I thought he got away and some liberties up and down the -- about what belly that he didn't commit a charge us -- Kelly but. It was hacking and whacking -- Tuukka -- -- in the last three -- four times and I -- so yeah I think he's really pressing trying to score goals. Trying to do anything he can get to the net and it was you start on the power play for the I -- -- capitalize that's -- he -- he's he's gonna run over. That's a penalty but not got to -- -- penalty but I will tell you is this the first goal of the game saying well that's it takes the -- -- Marshall -- second goal of the game charged. Or Ovechkin had a terrible change you letting -- come up the ice the third goal of Mexicans in the only blocks. He's he's the negatively really affecting his team. No animals is really try to reel him in get him to play his system but he's is a free spirit he goes out there and plays his game he doesn't play. The team game well enough that it -- that -- -- the capitals first goal batted the puck out of mid -- they're not fighting the benefits side that result we'll let you give and take. Bob -- Michael -- -- Thursday at 930. Whites got over the hair across the his -- about the Bruins complaining about the embellishment of the hot -- -- to -- that. Coming up Thursday at 930% of like town fair --
