Since the beginning of November, the Capitals have shown glimpses of a team capable of going on a long win streak that separates them from the rest of the Southeast Division.
News and notes as the Capitals prepare for tonights 5 p.m. puck drop against the Toronto Maple Leafs:
Alex Semin hasnt taken a minor penalty in nine games. Thats a good thing.
But he also hasnt picked up a point and is a minus-2 in his last five games.
The numbers are astounding when they are placed in perspective.
Aside from Troy Brouwer, Jason Chimera, Marcus Johansson and Mathieu Perreault, its fair to say that every forward on the Capitals roster has had an off-year in terms of goal production.
