I can only chalk this up to the team being tired. This has been a thoroughly disgusting game. Sorry Dale, but this is one of the first games I've seen that looks to be squarely on your shoulder. It's not clear what the hell they are trying to do out there.
This team has absolutely no depth outside of our first line, first D pair, and starting goalie. We have no second line. We have a first line, third line, and two 4th lines. It's pretty easy to see...there's no skill outside of the top line and when they don't score we can usually only muster 1 goal if lucky.
Most boring Caps game I've seen all year, but there is still a whole 3rd period left. Amazing how bad this team is clearing the defensive zone. Add to that, the inability to score goals and we had a few chances.
