Oh hell no. LOL. Where did I say that? If you are referring to my comment about the play being in Nashville's end of the ice, that is SOP in Caps games under Boudreau. They play very aggressively and tend to pin their opposition in their own end. They play 5 men in.
The result is the Caps control the puck. Often they don't score and when the other team breaks out its a jail break. The Caps often are 10-1 in shots after ten minutes.
13-4 after the first. Then go to the first intermission tied at 0-0.
Its not a result of the Preds being inferior. The Caps go all in and when they break down it results in and odd man rush or a penalty and youve seen their pk ranking.
The Caps don't get outshot 35-18. It just doesnt happen to them. They are a live by the sword/die by the sword team. Even more so against defensive teams.
