All I'm saying is you no matter what scenario took place, if the Caps scored, you guys are going to blame Torts (and I do not like Torts as a coach myself). Either McD was out too long and he should have taken him off or McD came off and we have the 2nd/3rd pairing out vs Ovechkin. He can't win.

And it's McDonagh.
How do you know that? McDonaugh was flat as a limp balloon when he skated to the box. You can't see that as a coach and think he will play to his full capabilities then you made a tactical mistake.
100% of the 2nd and 3rd pairing is still much better than a player that is so gassed that he can't even hit the glass.
Look, I'm not blaming this loss on McDonaugh, or entirely on Torts, but this cost us in that situation. The game should have been over before the OT started or when we had the PP in OT. That is on Sullivan, and this guy needs to go.
