Also Hendricks got the cold shoulder from Hunter in the beginning.
you totally miss the point. by putting beagle and hendricks on the ice for almost half of all shifts in the 3rd period, that led directly to the puck being in the capitals end of the ice for the entire period.

yes, the jets did not score on beagle and hendricks. conversely beagle and hendricks almost never had possession of the puck for that entire time. that consequences. had ovechkin played a more average amount of ice the caps might have scored a goal to salt away the game. if semin had played a little, maybe the caps score that goal. maybe at least the puck gets into the jets end of the ice and forced them to play a little defense. at the same time giving the caps defense and goaltending a moment to breath.

you cant seriously be defending the idea of making brouwer, beagle and hendricks the caps top minutes forwards. are you?
