All hockey teams go through hot and cold spells, but right now the Washington Capitals are in a polar vortex.
The Caps have lost three straight games in regulation and five straight overall while compiling a 2-5-3 record in their last 10 games. They are 22-19-8 for 52 points and have fallen to fifth in the Metropolitan Division standings.
But what about the Washington players? Which ones are going through hot and cold spells?
Here are the hottest and coldest Washington Capitals right now. Normally, three players would be listed for each category (hot, hotter, hottest; cold, colder, coldest), but the team is so frigid right now that there is only one "hottest" player. Additionally, each player is listed with his stats for the month of January.
