Ahoy, snapshot people! The season is almost a quarter of the way over (not to be confused with the quarter pole) and the Caps are trucking right along as one of the best teams in the league. As of the start of play on Sunday, the Caps 27 points (13-5-1) is good for fifth in the NHL.
The Caps score-adjusted shot-attempt percentage of 54 percent is tied for second, trailing only the Kings of Los Angeles. I could go on and on about how everything is turning up Caps so far this season, but I’ll let our friend Muneeb take the mic for a second.
It’s a great time to be rooting for this team and it’s okay to want to party a little bit over how well they’ve played. I’m not planning a parade or anything, as the season is far from over and the playoffs are more a crapshoot than anything else. But, I’m saying it’s okay to listen to some Andrew WK to celebrate where the Caps are after 19 games.
My Burakovsky take: player isn't playing well. Are other people as/more deserving? Sure, but it's just one game so nothing to fuss about.
