If anyone watched the physical battle between Ovie and Seidenberg the entire series, think about what would have happened if that were Michalek or Martin. They would have been on a gurney by the end of game 2. Martin took 3 hits the entire Philly series and was concussed by the last one.
Personnel, the RIGHT personnel, actually does make as much of a difference as systems do.
There's also WANT. You can just tell when a team flat out commits to puck pursuit and blocking shots, and that's the impression I got from the Caps the entire series. They WANTED to defend, they WANTED to block shots.
The more I look back on things, the more disgusted I am with the entire team and how lackluster their performance was. It also didn't help that our goaltender looked like an ECHL goalie either.
