Washington playing with greater passion
The Capitals appear to be enjoying the game more under new head coach Glen Hanlon.
"I hadn't seen that much energy before a game all season," winger Peter Bondra, who scored once in the Capitals' 6-5 victory over Boston on Thursday night, told The Washington Post.
"There was a lot of enthusiasm. Glen said all the right positive things [at a meeting]. And we responded well," goalie Olaf Kolzig told The Post. "Now it's on the players to perform. It's on us. We have enough leaders in this room to help him."
