The hype is mild. The stakes are nonexistent. Some stars won’t play.
The only thing between the Caps are the postseason is the Florida Panthers. You’re all clear, kid. Let’s go through the motions together tonight at 7 PM on CSN.
|Team||Record||SA%||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|Washington Capitals||55-18-8||53.4%||103.0||23.3% (3rd)||84.1% (6th)|
|Florida Panthers||34-36-11||50.4%||98.6||16.7% (25th)||85.2% (2nd)|
Some AHLers got called up. Some old fogies will sit. There was no morning skate. We have no idea. Holtby in net though. Gaze into the abyss.
Unless Capitals give up at least 14 goals today vs. Florida, they will win William Jennings Trophy for 2nd time in their history (1983-84).

Is this a jinx? Feels like a jinx.
The Caps have had, by a mile, the best goalie tandem in the league. It’s been a weird season.
There’s so much crazy stuff coming this week on RMNB. We’ll have playoff previews, videos, music, rewards and exclusives for our patrons, and a whole lotta hype. Set a bookmark and pop some tums.
