1. team. 19. This Capitals team is simply one well oiled machine. We saw first hand what they can do to a playoff contender when they dismantled the Blackhawks 6-0. Ever since the outdoor game with the Caps, I knew they were an awful matchup for the Blackhawks. That being said, the Capitals were in this same situation last year. Everybody thought they couldn’t be stopped, but they were. The Caps are 9-0-1 in their last ten and will probably continue to steamroll the rest of the NHL. Boy would it be cool to see Syd vs Ovi in the Eastern Conference championship. Let’s pray for that.. . Previous: 7th. Washington Capitals
