yea. there is some of that. no question. some of that is a result of getting hammered 3 or 4 games in a row. does wonders for your confidence. it has cleaned cassidy's clock. he can't stick with line combinations longer than a period before he has to bench someone.

that said, they have not won games in dallas, toronto, ottawa, and st louis in a a number of years. kolzig has never beaten dallas. they would have lost those games anyway.

Kolzig seems to have straightened his game out. you would think that the Caps have enough offensive firepower even with jagr taking a powder to consistantly score more than two goals a night.

the caps have a 4 game homestand coming up and a friendly schedule for the rest of november....

there is no excuse why the capitals shouldn't win 7 of those 11 games.
If they can't keep up in that stretch of schedule, they will be done.
