obliterating the league in historic fashion, have this underachieving team in 1st place.........in the entire NHL. That's right.
- We lead the league in points and are 2nd in goal differential.
- No surprise, first in goals per game at 3.63
- The powerplay that did actually start slow is now up to 7th in the league
- The penalty kill that started fast is still 13th in the league
The understated excitement for this team probably has a lot to do with the expectation that the Caps will have a high seed in the playoffs, and very little matters until the Spring when past demons could derail this regular season juggernaut. Let's worry about that then, in the meantime, enjoy the ride.
