+/- gets beat up as a stat. it depends on your pov. wideman and schultz are whipping boys. that they had a team worst -4 each makes sense. green and hamrlik had a team best +5 each. +5 btw is tied for 2nd best in the league. the caps points leader was ovechkin with 5pts in 7 games. the defensive points leader was hamrlik with three assists and green with the only goal and 2pts.

in such a low scoring series where the caps were clearly playing defense first and had few power play chances, i am not sure why so much is being layed at the feet of low production. the entire team produced little except perhaps for semin and his 3 goals.
How did Krejci and Lucic do in this series again?
