Toronto is 2nd in its division by 1 pts. that's 8 games. Only the Atlanta games where played in Washington. This is not an excuse. Its a reality. They 13 game stretch of schedule they just played are probably 8 or 9 loses under any circumstances.
Now...they start a long stretch of games where they mostly play at home against teams that are not the leagues elite. I think we will have a better idea of what kind of hockey team there is here by thanksgiving.
I think its easy to overlook how brutal the Caps schedule has been just likes its easy to miss how easy Tampa's schedule has been. 10 games,
8 at home, 3 against teams over .500. only one of those on the road.
Just some perspective and food for thought.
