Fortnightly Record: 4-2-1 (9 pts)
Overall: 49-14-5 (103 pts)
The Capitals lost two games in a row for the first time since February 2nd. They haven’t lost three games in a two week span since November!
Are they slowing down? Time to get worried?
No. It’s a long season and they still are playing better than most teams. Luckily both New York teams behind them in the standings have lost two in a row as well. The Caps remain 18 points clear of the Rangers in their division and still have the best record overall by a whopping 12 points.
Part of the problem could stem from the fact that Alex Ovechkin hasn’t scored in five games, three of which the Capitals lost. So, once Alex gets back to form things will turn around. Also, Evgeny Kuznetsov hasn’t scored in six games either. Hard to win if your two top players aren’t producing goals.
The Capitals next play at home against the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday, March 15 and then play Nashville on Friday, March 18.
