I missed last night's 6-1 victory by the Caps over the Toronto Maple Leafs, too bad but I was traveling for business and I had given my tickets to a colleague who is a hockey fan herself so it wasn't a waste. Sounds like I missed a good game though, eh. A 6-1 home ice victory is a good way to resume things after a topsy-turvy road trip last week, but before folks get too worried about the up and down of things last week, look at January as a whole so far and you see the Caps are 4-2-0 or playing 0.667 hockey on the year 2010.
That's good news since despite some injuries and being one of the team's in the league that everyone is now "getting up" to play against the Caps are still finding ways to win often. In fact the only two games in the last 10 you have to wonder about are the 7-4 loss to the Lightning on Tuesday in Tampa and to a lesser degree the 6-3 loss to the Hurricanes in Raleigh on Monday December 28th. All that said in their last 10 games, the Caps have gone 6-4-0 despite playing games against some of the best teams in the NHL right now: New Jersey, San Jose, Buffalo, and Los Angeles. In any case right now the Caps continue on pace for 110+ points this season.
Next week brings some great games: Caps - Flyers tomorrow; Caps - Red Wings, Tuesday; Caps - Pens, Thursday; and Caps - 'Yotes on next Saturday.....
LETS GO CAPS!!!
