I don't like that he isn't physical, but, not every player is. He's a 3rd pairing defender. Your expectations are too high for him.
If you don't score, you can't win the game. It's that simple. Even if you shutout a team in regulation in that game, you cannot win if you don't score. Zero goals = zero chance. There is no fallacy that the team offense did us in that game.
Well if not for Gilroy the Caps possibly wouldn't have scored either that game.
