The Caps are only a point behind New Jersey but it feels like more after a five-game skid that just ended Saturday at the Islanders. Their 25 ROW are 12th in the East.

For a team in the thick of a playoff race, the Caps didn't look all that desperate this week; until the third periods. They'll rue the shootout losses.

The week could not have gone much better for the Capitals. Not only did they get five of six points in California -- quite a feat -- but the field has come back to them. They are reborn.

Just when you thought the Capitals were losing touch the offense returns with eight goals in two games and are two points out. Evgeny Kuznetsov has been all that he was advertised.

Dear Evgeny Kuzentsov: We're glad to finally have you aboard, now please be all that you've been built up to be and help us make the playoffs. No pressure. Signed, the Capitals.

Up until they squandered a two-goal lead Sunday, the Capitals were showing top form as they have the past few seasons in March. Keeping it up will be hard though with their schedule.

After disappearing for a while, the offense has returned and wouldn't you know it, the Capitals won three of four games, including cooling the red-hot Jets.

There has been a lot of talk about the Capitals' goaltending, and it could be better, but so could the D. The offense appears to be back on track with 21 goals in five games.

A seven-game skid came to an end in Montreal. The question is, was it the Caps rebounding or simply running into a team in worse shape at the moment? A week on the road should tell.
01/20/20142018
While most of the Metro is climbing the Capitals are a mess. They've lost five in a row -- three straight to Metro rivals -- and now play five of the next six on the road.

The Caps remain absolutely terrifying on the power play, helping Alex Ovechkin to four goals in three games. But their 5-on-5 play and defense have been horrifying.
