Morning Line

“We played a solid game in Toronto. We played lousy tonight. Lousy. We get a lead and we still don’t do the right things even though on the third goal that we scored we get the goal from doing the right thing. [Brooks Laich’s] goal came from what we talk about all day long. We’re up 3-1 and the next shift we turn it over twice. That’s mental to me.

“You’re up 3-1, maybe you think it’s an easy night and then all of a sudden they get the puck again. We got the goals from doing the right things. We’ve got to be disciplined in who we are — even our fancy guys, probably from the fancy guys first. Some guys they know that they’ve got no choice [but to stick to simple plays] but guys with choices still gotta put it deep.”

-Adam Oates, head coach of the Washington Capitals after losing to Ottawa last night.  More from Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider.
