Sorry Kaigs, but the way the Caps played the Leafs, there was no way they were going to make it unless they all played desperate and got back to Presidents Trophy form. Clearly Pittsburgh was the more desperate team in game 6.

The Capitals team needs to change the way their team plays. Figuring out how to defeat your opponents after losing the first few games against them isn't good enough. They were down 2-1 to the Leafs before defeating them in 6, then found themselves in a 3-1 hole vs. Pittsburgh before losing to them in 7. After the all-star break, the Capitals were terrible, but eventually found their grove again and went 11-2-1 in their final 14 games of the regular season.

The Capitals need to learn to find their grove early on in any series of games. That means not being rusty right after the all-star break and taking weeks to finally start winning games again. It means being the better team in games 1-4 of a playoff series. If Washington had won at least 1 of their first two home games against Pittsburgh, I'm certain Washington would have won the series instead.

The Capitals IMO are still the 2nd best team in the league this season. I feel Pittsburgh will defeat Ottawa with ease, and will probably do the same in the Cup finals vs. Anaheim/Nashville.

I completely agree with cafca, capitals seems to rely on elimination to bring out their desperation.

Usually I would say Pittsburgh would take the series 10 out of 10 times, but the way Ottawa has been performing in the playoffs as a team, has been impressive, Karlson has been fucking unreal...

I feel all these teams have something to prove. Some of the closest playoffs series I've seen in a long time (besides that Hawk sweep ^^).

Yeah, doesnt really matter much anymore, Caps can't keep this same together with so many people becoming free agents so this was probably the last chance. And Pitt hasn't been that amazing, could be an upset in the future
