I don't feel the need to provide an explanation for Noel, but I have to believe that the coaching staff was concerned about the stamina/legs of the 8-10 players who were known to be suffering with pulmonary infections. Having to make an offensive push late in the game is likely something the staff and the team were hoping to avoid.

The Caps didn't score on their 5 on 3, either. In fact, they got scored on when on their 5 on 3. True, there's no reason we shouldn't be scoring when up 2 guys. But ours isn't the only really good PK in the league. We can shut down a 5 on 3 pretty well most nights. Other teams can also do the same. There's more to it than just that, though. The team has issues (issues that are rapidly growing into volumes) that I hope they get figured out soon.

Or maybe we should play all games down 2 guys?
