It is what it is but that's a tough scenario for any team let alone these Caps.
And Ovechkin is lucky that wasn't an NBC game as Milbury would have had another field day with his performance...
Come on though....I will give you Gurubuaueur. But Erskine? Coming into the season, who thought Mike Green would play every game? No one, not even Mike Green's Mom thought that.
So really its just Erskine. This team should not have been built so that John Erskine is the guy that folds the house of cards. If you told me going into the season that Green and Erskine would miss the same game, I'd have said "yeah, I'm sure, Green is alwaays hurt, Erskine is 6/7/8 D-men. So of course that will happen...probably a lot"
This team's Defense is terrible. Period End
