Pay closer attention to the two of them when they have the puck. You'll almost never see a smart move. Every pass they make is a nervous one and almost always fails. How many times has Komo tried to bank it up off the boards to a forward instead of passing back along the boards to an open defenseman? And how many times out of 10 does it fail? Same goes for Hammer.
Kovy gets the guillotine for lack of effort, among other reasons. Both Komi and Hamr have played badly, but the effort is there.....

Komi's been terrible during this slump, but I thought he played better last night. Hamr looked bad on the first two goals, although the pass he tried to reach on Ovechkin's goal was way too far out of reach....

On that goal, did Komi go for a change? Chipchura and Dandenault were the only ones coming back chasing Ovechkin. Hamr's defense partner was nowhere to be seen.
