It's safe to say that 2013 has not gone as planned in Washington. The Capitals have really struggled to start the year and currently find themselves in fourth place in the Southeast Division. With two months remaining in the regular season, there is a lot that can still happen.
Through 20 games, the Caps have amassed just 17 points; that's third from the bottom in the entire league.
With offensive weapons such as Alexander Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom, it seems surprising that the Capitals would struggle this much. However, they have had three coaches in a year-and-a-half and therefore have had to learn three different systems.
Though it seems bad, things are looking up in D.C. with some solid performances as of late.
There are still 28 games remaining for the Caps, enough time to get back on track. Let's look at some bold predictions for the rest of Washington's season.
