The Caps forwards have not played a point-man like that for the entire series except for Moore.

Maybe I was just seeing things, but it seemed very obvious to me that Moore didn't look comfortable without space, and the Caps were giving him none

Well, in reality, it's a problem every Rangers player on the PP has. Too much time with the puck, need to make quicker decisions. Need to keep the puck and bodies moving so that the PKers fall out of their diamond shape. It's exactly what was done on the Girardi PP goal between Brass and Zuccs, and they haven't done it since.

Second goal wins tonight.
