I think Oates did a good job with Washington on the ice but their culture seems a little off. Lots of gloating when they win, lots of whining when they lose. Say what you will about Torts, but this team seems to have its collective head on right.
That was a criticism I had of the Capitals earlier. I'm no psychologist, nor am I in the Capitals locker room, but I really think they got so worked up over their supposed ill treatment during Game 6 that they psyched themselves out of Game 7.
