MDZ is the problem. Here's a perfect example. Last night against Caps, in his own end to the left of the Lundqvist, he faces pressure and decides to lightly lob the puck across the goal mouth to no one. Caps DMan pinches gets a quality shot on goal, Caps maintain pressure. MDZ lacks hockey IQ.
There were several other examples last night where MDZ could have been more assertive or made a more intelligent play to breakout of zone or limit opposing teams quality scoring chance.
I like how you conveniently leave out J Moore being caught doing nothing and letting that 1st caps goal get scored. Also how he misses with a pathetic poke check and Ryder just dances around him to score a goal. But yeah DZ is the problem.
