Capitals just went on a road trip through western canada, and won all 3 games (in 4 nights).  I'm prepared to drink the kool aid for this year's team.

 

WSH 6 CGY 2
WSH 3 VAN 2
WSH 7 EDM 4
 

There was a hat trick last night.  By Kuznetsov, not Ovechkin.

Well it's been an interesting first quarter of the year...

Hawks are consistently inconsistent and that is no surprise given all the new (and mostly young) faces brought in. But Panarin is sensational, Trevor van Riemsdyk appears to be a legitimate top 4 defenseman, and Teräväinen is coming back to his playoff form from last year. Anisimov makes a massive difference for the second line, obviously for Kane...

Speaking of the vets, Kane basically saves us offensively every other game. There have been nights where 8-9 of the forwards are incapable of doing anything well and Kaner makes a few plays (with the help of Panarin and Anisimov) to keep the hawks in the game. Toews has sucked production-wise. He needs to find some motivation. Hossa looked like crap at first but the last 2-3 weeks regained energy. Keith has been excellent, maybe a tad slow but he did have surgery not long ago. Hammer looks okay, Seabrook has picked up some slack from him and is earning the new contract. And the fourth liners are finally showing life - Kruger in particular. And that means a lot because we depend on his play much more than I'd expect for a 4th line center...

The rest of the league? The Pacific division <mostly> sucks, the Central is quite scary, the Capitals are for real (yep Dan), and the Habs are annoying. But what else is new.

I'll just leave this no-look top shelfer here.

Agreed, Caps are a clear President's Trophy favorite.

It took a few months but the hawks are rounding into form with consistency across all 4 lines. Patrick Kane is still playing out of his mind. The gap between #1 and #2 is the Central is very quickly diminishing.

Wings, Flyers at Detroit tonight and then the Wings at Boston tomorrow.

The Rangers on Saturday could me moot.... 

Will be interesting to see who takes the 3rd spot in the Atlantic, the last wild card spot and who goes home.

Hawks played legit fucking awful from the all star break until (basically) a week ago. If they have been faking it this hard and round back to form in the playoffs it will be their best troll job yet.

Scared of LA and Washington, followed slightly by Dallas and less slightly by Pittsburgh.
