Its pretty simple;

Tampa's forward speed is killing the Caps.

With Dubi's stress fracture, and Gaborik's inexplicable drop in speed since the olympics of last year, we had jack for fast forwards.

Our cycle play allowed for an easy backcheck for Washington forwards to protect their defense. Against Tampa they can't keep up, and Ovechkin playing like a spaz for 25 minutes isn't helping them in the defensive zone.
