As the new head coach of the Washington Capitals, Adam Oates said he plans to implement a style similar to what he saw from the New Jersey Devils and Los Angeles Kings in the Stanley Cup finals: An in-your-face brand of hockey that dictates the course of a contest, balancing offensive intensity with sound defense.
