Remember, the other year they won 55 games.
I'm saying they haven't played with anywhere near as much passion/enthusiasm the last 2 years, and I think it's due to them playing so defensive. It's like caging the beats. You're not gonna win playing against the strength of the team.

And regardless, last year's playoffs weren't too bad for the Caps. Beat the defending Champs, and almost beat the Rangers. Just couldn't score because they were playing so passive and defensive.
