Fortnightly Record: 6-1 (12 pts)
Overall: 24-6-2 (50 pts)
Your Washington Capitals have made a statement. They are here and they will not be trifled with.
Their latest victim is their bitter rivals, the New York Rangers. After taking a 3-1 lead in the 1st Period of Sunday’s game (December 20), the Rangers were probably feeling pretty good about themselves. But then the Capitals decided to crush them. Mercilessly. They scored six straight goals to dominate the game, 7-3.
With that victory, the Caps have extended their first place lead in the Metropolitan Division to 8 points (over said Rangers). At 50 points on the season, they are tied with Dallas for the most points in the league. And they have played one less game than Dallas.
They also have a 5-game winning streak, and have won 12 of their last 15.
The Caps are firing on all cylinders. Tonight they play at Carolina and look to continue their recent brilliance. And dominance.
