+5 pt advantage for playoff spot
The Capitals found what they were looking for in Buffalo and Minneapolis, taking two hard-fought points in each city.
Then they crossed over into Canada, and couldn’t get anything done against the playoff charging Jets.
Fine. It was the third road game in six days and Winnipeg looks like they’re hot at the right time, winning 4-games in a row.
The points lead for a playoff berth is quickly dwindling, however. Ottawa is playing out of this world, on a 6-game winning streak, behind their goalie’s, Andrew Hammond (13-0-1 in his first 14 NHL starts), ridiculous start to his career.
No time to get complacent. Both Boston and Ottawa are right behind the Caps.
There is a strange gap in the schedule, and the Caps don’t play again until next Thursday, March 26 at home against New Jersey.
March 16, 2015: Capitals at Sabres – WIN (4-3 SO)
March 19, 2015: Capitals at Wild – WIN (3-2)
