No. 1: Washington Capitals

Previous: No. 1

Record:  33-10-6 (72 points)

Let’s take a look at the Washington Capitals in the month of January.  They’ve won 12! games, and only lost two (one in OT, so they still gained a point).  They are also scoring a ton of goals in said games.  The Caps are starting to look more and more like the real deal.  They are currently at the top of their division, and top of the league.  Their one draw-back is that they always seem to choke in the playoffs.  I’m not so sure this year.
