What I see are a bunch of players who can't be bothered to make that extra stride or take that extra hit to control the puck. The let the Caps handle it, and when the puck is loose, the Caps win every puck battle. Are we going to blame the constant loss of puck battles on Tortorella, too?
No but I blame him for the way that he employs that D. That's lazy D unless you actually block the shot and not deflect it in your own net... They keep playing prevent whenever they have a lead
