Capitals Update (4/15/11)

Katie Carrera at the Capitals Insider reports that the Capitals plan will be to crash the net tonight…

Niklas Backstrom on creating traffic in front of Henirk Lundqvist…

“I think that’s the whole thing we have to do more of starting now,” Nicklas Backstrom said. “We have to move in front of him a little more so he can’t see the puck. Otherwise, if he sees the shot he’s going to stop most of them.”

Bruce Boudreau on crashing the net…

“I don’t think you can ever get enough of that,” Boudreau said. “It’s not as easy to do as you’d like. Their defense is really good at blocking out, sometimes the opportunity is not there. To get traffic the point man’s got to have time to shoot the puck and you’ve got to have time to get from the corner from getting the puck to get to the front of the net. We did as much as we could, we’d like to do more, but every team would like to do more.”

…probably a great game plan seeing that the Rangers do nothing to opponents who run Lundqvist.
