Or that AO was 1.61 PPG against the SE teams and 0.90 against the rest of the league.
Bottom line is, they simply aren't a very good team and with realignment I don't even see them making the playoffs. I think they just appear much better than they are from a great record built by beating on a horrifically weak division. Regular season the Caps were 15-3-0 against their division and 4-9-2 against ours. That about says it all.
Thanks for the stats about Washington. I had no idea they'd done so poorly against teams outside the SE and the same applied to Ovechkin.
