(Video) PHT Extra: Caps fans should be encouraged


Halford and I talked about the Caps today. We didn’t mention Alex Ovechkin’s whiff last night in Edmonton, and we didn’t debate whether Ovechkin was “coachable” or not, but we did talk about how Washington (3-1-2) has started pretty darn well under new coach Barry Trotz.

So click play, OK?

Oh, and while you watch Halford doing his best Bennett Brauer impression, here’s a Capitals stat to consider:

2013-14 shots against per game: 33.5 (27th in NHL)
2014-15 shots against per game: 24.2 (3rd in NHL)
