Washington has been looking a lot stronger. How come? Who knows? Stable lines have got to factor in, though. Jaromir Jagr seems pretty comfortable with Kip Miller and breaking up Robert Lang and Peter Bondra looks like it was a good move. And not that the Rangers are the biggest challenger, but yesterday the Caps’ powerplay was deadly, going four for six against New York.
It feels like Bruce Cassidy stopped forcing everything and the Caps are looking a lot better for it.
