I don't think Caps were much worse. Neuverth was. Lundqvist played well all 3 games, but was able to outplay Neuverth only in game 3.

Back to topic. You cannot go after coach for his expression of hope regarding goalscoring. Coach cannot control scoring. No one can. Scoring is incidental. What is not incidental are scoring chances. Scoring chances (both quantity and quality of them) is the only way to pass the judgement on coach contribution to the offense. Those come from Xs and Os and lamp oil burning. Due to general ignorance of the fans and even the media they continue to look at it as if coach was/is responsible for goals scored. Hence Torts pray for luck there.
