Right now the way they will win away games is by weathering the storm early and slowly ramping up offensively as the game progress. The way they beat Ottawa early this month.
These guys don't have much confidence to overcome early debacles like that.
So once a Cap takes a penalty it is game over...?
At the minimum you expect your PK to kill off 4 out of 5 penalties a team takes. On that kill the Caps' PK parted like the Red Sea and gave up a layup.
But yeah how dare anyone take a penalty on this team...
