Hello from RMNB, where we’re all having nervous breakdowns at the same time.
Tonight the Caps wrap up their west coast jaunt in San Jose, where they’re expected to get stomped as per tradition. But the Capitals have been defying expectations of late. Their record in one-goal games is still astonishing, and they’ve clutched victory– or at least a standings point– in both their Californian games this week.
Caps at Shark at 10:30 PM on CSN Plus. After this there’s only one more late game, and it’s not until April, we promise.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|Washington Capitals||49-13-5||51.5%||101.7||23.7% (1st)||84.5% (4th)|
|San Jose Sharks||37-24-6||51.4%||100.1||21.9% (7th)||79.6% (22nd)|

Nothing. The internet is terrible. Let’s all promise each other that we’ll all unplug for a bit today and go for a walk or something.
