The season reaches its midpoint for the Caps tomorrow night against the visiting Canadiens.
Is it just me, or does it seem like the first 40 games zoomed past?
Perhaps that's because the first half, at times, was just flat out crazy.
Let's review: There was a six game losing streak (0-4-2).
Which was followed by an unbelievable hot stretch (7-1-1).
Which was followed by yet another brutal lull (1-7-0) that includes the five-game losing streak they bring into tomorrow's game.
I gotta say, I'm still not sure what to expect from this team on a nightly basis. I'm not sure they know what to expect. As one team official told me the other day, they are still "trying to figure out who they are."
Well, they better figure it out. And quickly, if they are going to make a run at the playoffs. At the moment, they are three points out of eighth place in the Eastern Conference. But they are also two points out of 14th. Think about that.
In my opinion, we'll know exactly where these Caps are headed by the All-Star break, which is about three weeks away. They've got eight games (all against Eastern Conference teams, five against Southeast Division opponents) to get things turned around. If they don't win five of them it's probably time to start thinking about next year.
