Twenty-three games into the season, the Caps sit atop the Metropolitan Division (worst division name in sports? yes!) with a record of 17-5-1. This team is good.
Caps take over first in the Metro Division with 4-2 win over Leafs. Also second in the Eastern Conference and third in the NHL. Not bad.

This team is very good. In fact, they have us thinking they may even be The Team. The Caps puck possession has slipped a tad in recent weeks, down to a still pristine 53.2 score-adjusted shot attempt percentage, good for fifth in the NHL. Over the past two weeks, this mark has been 50.2 percent. Still fine enough and nothing to be concerned about yet, though certainly worth being aware of.
In other words, the beat goes on. This is a great team we are watching. Let’s do the numbers thing.
