no....season before last the caps were 19th in goals for and 4th in goals against. its easy to look up. the cap trap was what that was about.

hunter went to the extreme which was sitting on every one goal lead the team got. it meant skating his checking line first line minutes and leaving ovechkin and company on the bench for 3rd period power plays.

the caps were so defensive that they were not permitted to attempt to score into the empty net at the end of games.
