The Washington Capitals lead the league in standings points … and maybe in swagger. At least, it feels that way lately.
Monday presented their latest display of power as the Carolina Hurricanes had no answer for the Capitals machine. Washington clobbered Carolina by a score of 6-1, but at least the Hurricanes can take comfort in joining a rather large group of teams who’ve been humbled by Braden Holtby & Co.
This makes the Capitals 11-0-1 during a dominant run; they’ve scored at least a point in all but one game since Dec. 21.

Yep, that’s something else.
Hey, when you’re on fire like the Capitals have been lately, it’s probably tough to make some pretty bold comparisons.
