Who's Hot and Who's Not for the Washington Capitals in the 2013 Playoffs

The Washington Capitals and New York Rangers are once again engaged in a tough series where the margin for error is enormously small and the difference in each game has been similarly narrow.

This, of course, is surprising to no one who has followed either team for the past five years or so.

As is often the case with these two teams, each critical mistake is magnified and momentum has seemingly changed not just from game to game, but several times within each game itself.

Game 1 was all about a flurry of goals by the Caps that resulted in a 3-1 win.

Game 2 was about the Caps power play succeeding where the Rangers could not.

Game 3 was a back and forth affair where the last goal won.

Game 4 was all about the Rangers taking advantage of some serious mental errors by the Caps to even the series at 2-2.

The scene now shifts back to the Verizon Center for Game 5. For the Caps, it is a chance to hold serve on home ice and go back to Madison Square Garden with a chance to close out the series.

With the series now having reached its tipping point, it is important to take note of which Caps' players have been hot so far and which ones are not quite getting the job done.

Here then is a quick look at who's hot and who's not for the Caps in the 2013 playoffs so far.
