I'd say Girardi played pretty well with McD, shutting down Ovechkin completely. The problem is, that Girardi is an all heart defender, but he isn't the quickest so he needs a smart partner to cover him. Pairing him with DZ was a disaster from the start.

With all players healthy and Moore continuing to improve we have an excellent defense with two premier shutdown pairs possible. What we lack is offense from the blue line and depth after those first six players.
