New Washington coach Barry Trotz wants to see more consistency from his defensemen when he takes over the club.
"We have to get some consistency on the back end, and when I say the back end, I mean our whole defensive five-on-five game," he said. "There's got to be a consistency factor on the back end. We've got some really good people in [John] Carlson and [Karl] Alzner and [Dmitry] Orlov. That group has to be a little more consistent, especially around the net, the small-area game." He wants to emphasize better puck management and making good decisions to get into the offensive zone. John Carlson was a workhorse for Adam Oates in 2013-14 and it will be interesting to see what new tricks he learns under Trotz. May 31 - 3:35 PM
