Caps @ Buffaslugs 10-13-2007 Wrap Up

Final Thoughts:

Instead of piling on the Caps I think I'll comment on the Buffaslugs here. It is now apparent to me why the Buffaslugs have flamed out in the playoffs for the last two years and it is because of their high pressure, up tempo style of play. The NHL season is a six months and the playoffs are another two months. That's eight months of a demanding physical style. While I have no doubts that the Buffaslugs are well conditioned athletes, there is a breaking point or a "wall" that you will eventually hit no matter how great of a shape you are in. The lesson that is to be learned from this is that the season is a marathon and not a sprint. 5 down, 77 to go.
