No. 2: Washington Capitals

Previous: No. 1

Record: 44-17-7 (95 points)

Four straight losses for the Capitals? Next you’re going to tell me Northwestern made the NCAA tournament. Wait … what’s that now? In all reality, though, the Caps were due for a slide. Braden Holtby’s .839/4.56 statline over the last three games is particularly hideous.
