on their schedule. The teams they have played are a combined 31-36-20-2. 5 of the 8 games have been against teams below .500.

The Capitals have played 11 games. 7 on the road. 3 outside the eastern time zone. 3 sets of back to back games. the teams they have played are a combined 53-42-13-5. Two of the 11 games have been against teams with records under .500 and those two teams were
Anaheim, cup finals, and Minnesota, conference finals.

Out of 30 NHL teams there are 9 teams with a winning record on the road. There are 9 teams with a losing record at home.

In December and January Tampa Bay plays 19 of 31 games on the road.
In Dec, Jan, Feb the Caps have a streak of 26 games where 17 are home games.

My guess is that the Capitals make up a lot of ground in the standings around the first of the year.
You can run all these game numbers but the fact is the caps are not looking anything like a team and have miles to go before they start at winning at a regular pace
