When the Washington Capitals gave up two straight breakaways to the Dallas Stars while on their own power play last night, I thought that was rock bottom.
Rock bottom was Dustin Jeffrey‘s second period goal. The tally, which came 34 seconds after Ryan Whitney’s 2-on-0 goal on a botched Capitals line change, gave the Dallas Stars a 3-0 lead. It essentially ended the game.
The defense on the goal was atrocious. I’d waste my time or yours with a description. The screenshots and video say everything.
“Guys, let’s all gang up on THAT guy. Ignore that other guy!”
“…And down five-oh!”
How I Felt Watching This Goal Happen
This is not NHL hockey. None of the three players involved with the play (John Erskine, Chris Brown, and Julien Brouillette) deserve NHL minutes.
