The Washington Capitals have lost a playoff series to a lower seeded team for the 4th consecutive season.
We were hungry. We just didn’t win,” captain Alex Ovechkin said. “We want to win. They want to win. Somebody has to lose. We are losing and I don’t know what to say right now.”
Added coach Bruce Boudreau: “There’s not really much to say [after the game]. The [players] are down in the dumps, I’m down in the dumps. I just told them I was proud of them for the way they worked all year and that they never quit right until the end. That’s all a coach can ask – you don’t quit and you just keep plugging through. We thought we had a good chance to win, and we just didn’t get it done.”
