It is March 6 and the Caps have 100 points. We are watching a remarkable season. It’s true that the team hasn’t looked as dominant in recent weeks, yet they continue to rack up points in the standings, going 7-3-0 in their last 10 games.
As concerning as some of these trends may be, here’s a snippet from the week 2 snapshot that feels relevant today:
There will be ups and downs so, as the team embarks on this long road, it’s best to try to keep an even keel.
Despite whatever concerns one might have, the Caps are still nearly lapping the field. All concerns should be within the context that this is a team with 100 points in early March, and while feeling a little anxious about how this all ends is understandable, it’s also okay to enjoy the here and now.
Take it slow. It’ll work itself out fine. All we need is just a little patience (with our 100-point team).
