Sudden thoughts and second thoughts on the Capitals 5-0 thrashing by the New Jersey Devils Friday night:
Perhaps the only thing more alarming than the Capitals 5-0 loss to the New Jersey Devils Friday night at the Verizon Center were the comments that were made inside the losing locker room afterward.
In years past, the New Jersey Devils won Stanley Cups with a dominating, suffocating defensive approach.
Capitals coach Bruce Boudreau knew it would be no small task beating the New Jersey Devils on back-to-back nights. Accomplishing it with just four healthy defensemen made it nearly impossible.
