CSN Washington dot com. Out of action set the tone but there was no doubt is we worked your way down that lineup. Everybody chipped in with some extra effort and you really sought any guy we've heard from earlier Matt Hendricks tonight although conduct so what you expect out of Matt Hendricks started the season and that was a little concerned the scoring goals and I think the best way he can play is again a block shots that goes in and puts his nose down in the face -- Gets to the front of the net and battle hard all time he backs checks as hard as they -- he hits he's playing. Probably injured there's no way a guy like this can go out and play that hard every game and not have bumps and bruises all over to say the least that he's probably the leader when it. Comes to the gritty guys who have role players and everything he does but it was never wanted it looks like -- big big back check tonight. Everyone coming helping out getting back in front of the net. And that's something we've next time I can't ever remember seeing the entire team getting back all the time like -- and certainly we've never -- shot blocking like. Just we've seen intensity at the offensive -- you can see intensity of the defense then guys just willing to sell out and beat. In the moments to sacrifice for the good of the club. We have all in the last days talk to local media at national media and they keep asking about this new look Washington Capitals blocked. Brooks like courageously in the shooting lane there. Alex Ovechkin maybe it diminished role in the spotlight with less time on the ice. But when he's been out there he's been willing to pay the price and it turns out from a defensive standpoint. To lift this team into the winner's circle. Brought public -- little guys their keeper Courtney you know one of the things that you probably wasn't doing all American Hockey League blocking shots and he did. Blocking shots doggedly for checking guys Matt Hendricks of course just pushes and pushes and pushes. At all times but I just love the back check by all the players 32 -- the plays like that Troy Brown okay Matt Hendricks are doing it. Joy ward Mike Knuble step -- like this get the puck out of the gonna heat up minutes the other way we try to say sparingly but I can't about Matt Hendricks his play. Simply in this postseason has been here -- Every ounce of energy and effort. Well I'll look -- Alexander seven you know I've always given him credit for defensive play but it's not a whole other level now ahead of you look get a point but. Thought I really like everything that I thought of Alexander Clement tonight of course tough on the boards. The back checking getting pucks out of this don't patience with the puck. Feeding his line he's getting down to the front of the -- and every single players putting a body on the line and that's why there's going to be a game seven in the second series. You know one of the reasons why this team has become such a team is nobody's ever left out to dry. It's certainly could've been Jewell ward saying all my gash you know he cost -- a game. Everybody rallied around shall awarding you saw tonight him getting key ice time early so he had the confidence of his coach. CSN Washington dot com.
