I keep thinking I might have trouble getting excited for the later games if they lose and they're out of it but then I remember that I never really expected them to be in the playoff race this late in the season. Hopefully they win Friday, Washington stumbles down the stretch and the Jets can sneak in with 6 wins in their last 9, but even that's still doubtful.

Regardless of whether the team makes the playoffs, I hope they beat Washington on Friday. Not only do I think that doing well and at least coming close to the playoffs does more for the team than coming last and getting a lottery pick, I genuinely dislike the Caps and want to see them fail. Even if this team finishes 9th and doesn't get a great draft pick, the expectation for next year will be clearly set at making the playoffs and that could help attract free agents in the summer more than if the team fell to 12th for example.
