from Craig Custance of ESPN,
The Washington Capitals went out and took three of four points against two potential playoff teams this weekend in Boston and Philadelphia, and currently have as many points (68) as the final wild-card team. Yet, if you're a Capitals fan, you can't feel great about this team, even if they manage to hang in the playoff hunt.
They still make mistakes while playing with a lead that a veteran team shouldn't be making, whether it be a defenseman jumping into a play on offense at an inopportune time or another defenseman jumping an opposing player at an inopportune time. Washington's schedule in March is just too demanding to leave any points on the table, which is exactly what it did in Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Flyers.
