Washington Outworking Opponents

from the Wasingtion Times,
The Washington Capitals have built a reputation as an honest, hard-working team that grinds victories out. Seldom have they had the personnel to speed past opponents or go head-to-head with offensive powerhouses. The Caps still can't match up against the league's top teams, but the club has done little to change the image it is a lunch-bucket brigade that has to outwork opponents to win. "They skate, they hit, they score and they're the kind of guys you win with," general manager George McPhee said yesterday in describing forwards who get secondary billing but are filling first-class roles right now. "We're not surprised by their contribution. We're just happy it's finally happening for these guys. They've earned it."
