The Washington Capitals are not a good hockey team right now.
They lost again on Tuesday night, dropping a 3-2 decision to the Toronto Maple Leafs that pushed them to a league-worst 2-7-1 mark on the season. In a one-goal game every mistake is magnified, like the one that led to Toronto's first goal.
Try to imagine this play with circus music playing in the background as goalie Michal Neuvirth and defenseman Tom Poti have a bit of a miscommunication on which one of them is going to play the puck.
Meanwhile, James van Riemsdyk swoops in, steals the puck, and completes the wrap-around into an empty net for his first of two goals on the night.
That's not what you're looking for.
Van Riemsdyk has been tremendous for the Maple Leafs this season and how has six goals on the season. For all of the heat and criticism Brian Burke takes for trading two top-10 draft picks for Phil Kessel, his trade to get van Riemsdyk for Luke Schenn is looking like an absolute steal for the Maple Leafs.
