Russell and I return for our 40th episode of JRR tomorrow morning at 10am Eastern. We could spend the whole hour lamenting the lack of offensive production, the alarming number of shutouts this season, and the inconsistent compete level for this Capitals team. We'll do some of that, no doubt, but we'll focus this week on what has been an unequivocal positive for Les Capitals in the 2010-11 campaign: the goaltending performances of Semyon Varlamov and Michal Neuvirth. And Braden Holtby too.
We welcome to the show Justin Goldman, Founder and Director of The Hockey Guild and The Goalie Guild, to get his perspective on the Caps' 'tenders and their progress, their fitness, both physically and mentally, for a long playoff run, and his thoughts on the tandems of the Caps' chief rivals in the Eastern Conference. James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail recently relied upon Justin's experience for an analysis of Leafs' goalie Jonas Gustavsson, and we'll aim to apply his scouting eye to the men between the pipes for DC.
Here's your question for tomorrow's show:
How many points will the Caps claim on the upcoming 5-game road trip?
The call in number is (917) 388-4003 and we'll take your questions @japersrinkradio.
Join us with your café con leche. (Or my favorite, café con nada.)
