Justin Williams is very disappointed in how the Capitals' playoff run ended.

"This one has been the hardest one to take because of where I am in my career and being so sure of something," Williams said of Washington losing in Game 7 to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Williams was added to the Capitals prior to the start of the 2015-16 campaign in the hope that his presence might help propel the Capitals in the playoffs. After all, he's been a part of three Stanley Cup championships and has a reputation for stepping up in the postseason, so if anyone could end Washington's run of disappointing postseason performances, you'd think it'd be Williams. Unfortunately he couldn't save the Capitals and now he's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent. He'll turn 36 on Oct. 4.
