While the Washington Capitals have been one of the league’s most successful regular season teams since Bruce Boudreau took over, the common criticism is that the team isn’t adequate in their own end.

It remains to be seen if that will change once the game’s matter the most, but the Caps showed that they could play a defensive-minded (some might even say trap style) game in their 3-0 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins this afternoon.

Solid two-way center Brooks Laich discussed the team’s newfound commitment to stingy defense (and the status of injured blueliner Mike Green) in the video below.
