    Last 4 games:
    W 4-3 SO @ Isles
    W 4-1 @ Blues
    W 5-2 v. Canes
    W 4-0 v. Hawks

    Which begs the question: WHERE THE HELL HAS THIS BEEN?!

      Answer: sitting in Me Me Me’s closet gathering dust ! :)

      Truth be known, even with a losing record @ 38-30-13 (38 victories vs 43 losses) the Capitals are now only 2 points out from a playoff berth. So aside from being scandalous, that fact alone is yet just another testament as to the absolute ‘stupidity’ of the current overtime arrangement. Teams like Washington, Vancouver and Detroit should be nowhere near a playoff spot ! Instead, these people should be busy booking tee times at or planning out their gardens for the coming ‘bedding plant’ season !
