Then he mentioned on the side the schedule makers have been good to the caps. No back to back games yet, and they've played like 3 or 4 teams coming in for a second game in their own back to back situation. They've faced something like 5 backup goalies in their 7 wins, 3 of those games at home.
yeah, and they were badly outplayed by the pens, despite no fleury, no sid, no brooks, and a game malkin probably should have sat.
all that aside, i think its a bit early to anoint the caps as either paper tigers or the real deal.
