Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Chuck Gormley of CSNWashington,
Dale Hunter finds himself at a crossroads in his first year as an NHL coach.
Does he brush aside Friday night’s 5-0 loss to the New Jersey Devils as just one team taking advantage of its chances and the other team getting stoned by a goalie on top of his game?
Or does he believe what was said in the locker room after the game – that there was a lack of pride, effort and signs of quit in his team?
Does he scold them? Cajole them? Crack the whip with the infamous ‘bag skate?’
“Honestly, that’s up to the coach to decide,” Capitals defenseman Dennis Wideman said. “We play every other day for the rest of the season. I don’t know if making us tired will help. Maybe it will, I don’t know. Who knows? I don’t know.”
That’s the problem with these Capitals. Every time they take a step forward they take another step back. And no one seems to know why.
