The Capitals' incredible streak
It was really a heart-breaker of a weekend for Washington, which lost two close games on Saturday and Sunday that could have gone either way.
I spotted this note at the tail end of one of the Associated Press' postgame roundups:
The Capitals went 48 games without losing consecutive games in regulation time under Boudreau.That's pretty impressive.
It's going to be an awfully long row to hoe now for the Capitals to get back in the race, however, as the Hurricanes just seem to keep on winning. Washington's now closer to the eighth seed than the Southeast Division lead.
