The post season is really about defense / discipline and goal play.

The Caps finally have a strong blueline ... culminating with the acquisition of Shattenkirk. They have depth ... which is critical in trying to win 16 brutal games in less than 2 months.

If you've noticed the present Stanley Cup playoffs, it really comes down to the 3rd period or even OT. It's that tight. Unless the goalie is incredibly hot, it's about NOT making mistakes in front of your net. If you can do that, you're in every game.

When the teams get better throughout the playoffs, the games will get more defensive.
