Jose Theodore took the blame for last night's, 4-3, defeat in game 1 of the eastern conference quarterfinals against the New York Rangers.

The fans have put up with it all season and now that it is playoff time, it may be time to let Mr. Varlamov take the ice.

I have tried to give him time to adjust to D.C., but it looks as though the Caps may not be able to win with Jose in net.

The Caps return Saturday to Verizon Center for game two against the Rangers. The puck drops at 1 p.m. and will be nationally televised on NBC.
