The Washington Capitals in my humble opinion are in suffering from, what you might call, the mid season blues.
It’s not that uncommon, it happens to a lot of teams and I would say it happens a lot during this time of the year. A great team that in the middle of the season right around the all-star break kind of loses focus.
I think this last week can serve as some proof of this. Three or four games were played and the Capitals lost two of them, probably should have lost three of the four. The wins against a bad Ottawa Senators team and a struggling San Jose Sharks team, Washington should have lost that game to the Sharks if not for a historic last minute comeback.
The losses came against division rival Flyers and Devils. The struggles have come and they have revealed issues this team has. It’s nothing to freak out at yet. Why? Because it is stars of the week time.
It’s the absolute best time of the week in the entire world. World peace happens for a couple of minutes every week because of us. So let’s do it!
