I wonder if Brooks Laich has any idea why that has been the case

Watching Washington celebrate, it was hard not to imagine that this was exactly the kind of game the Caps would have found a way to lose in the past.

Capitals forward Brooks Laich suggested the difference comes from the personality of coach Dale Hunter.

"I hear you guys talking about it and you ask about a different mental toughness," Laich said. "It's a different makeup of a team a little bit. It comes from our head coach and he's a very calm, composed guy behind the bench and he really, I said it from day one when he got here, he runs a tight ship and he's a guy that we draw from."
