One off his glove flies in the air and instead if looking for it he looks forward and then it bounces off his back and into the goal. That was terrible.
Antother dud should be BB. Yes the caps got the win but he benches both Alexanders with 1min left in the game and no goalie in net. And then in overtime it took almost 2 mins before ovechkin even got a shift. Let's just say if he doesn't smooth things over with ovechkin, who looked pissed after the game, his days might be numbered in was!
Those are good points. I did not see the Caps/Ducks game but based on the shots being 40-15 it's tough to put it on Hiller. Regardless of how they played Vokoun came out with a win and crappy peripherals while Hiller maintained a better save percentage. That's the perspective I was writing from. Now that you mention it Hiller too can be a dud. Honorable mention.
Boudreau strikes me as a coach who is going crazy between the ears. He took something that was working fine and tried to change everything about it. Sure the Caps lose in the playoffs but I would say that was more a matter of bad bounces and maturity than it did style of play. It's not like his defence-first approach won them a Cup either. Long-term if he continues he's going to turn into another Hitchcock and the players will tune him out. or maybe that is already happening.
