It hasn’t been pretty for the Washington Capitals this season, and it appears that everyone is finally becoming frustrated. The Capitals looked like they would be bouncing back on the right track when they stormed out to a two goal lead over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night, but the team crumbled and suffered their fourth straight loss.
Now, head coach Adam Oates is chiming in on the team’s continued struggles and he couldn’t help but to vent.
“Yelling is irrelevant, that’s high school for me. If the guys don’t know we let one get away, shame on them,”Oates said after the team’s latest loss, as per CSN Washington. “I’m going to tell them, but if they walk away and they’re not upset, then there’s nothing any coach can do to change that.”
As things continue to go South in Washington, players are demanding trades from the roster.
Off the ice, the fans are demanding improvement and ownership may have to shake things up quickly if they want to turn things around and remain relevant this season.
