It’s been over two months since the Washington Capitals last played a game.
In fact, it’s been over two months since sports all over the country have been shut down due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. The days have passed and there’s been no word on if the Washington Capitals season will continue or not.
Doubt has crept in as each day has gone by during these times that are unprecedented. The Capitals had a first place lead in the Metropolitan Division with under a month to go. Alex Ovechkin was chasing history and now has to deal with this on top of two lockouts that severely affected his numbers.
Plus the first two rounds of the Stanley Cup playoffs would’ve been in the books in an alternate universe if the season had kept going on. By now we’d know where the Caps would stand, either another offseason or their second trip to the Eastern Conference Final in three years.
We don’t know what’s going to happen in the future in regards to the 2019-20 season and perhaps the following three questions we’ll cover may also wind up being unknown as well. Or maybe we’ll luck out and the season will continue. We shall see.
