hunter was defense to the exclusion of everything else. it was beagle to the exclusion of ovechkin. there were no decisions to be made. no thinking. defensemen dumped the puck in and went no further than the blue line.

even with that the caps took months to find a way to make it work. lets give this more than a game.

i dont know much about hockey. but it looked to me like the caps had the bolts boxed in for the first period. as their energy ebbed their control of the game slide as well. sounds like conditioning to me.

oates was quoted as saying they needed to use their ice time on systems and to get in shape on your own. again...that sounds like conditioning.
