Bruce Boudreau knows that this team has the potential to win a conference, or a Presidents Trophy. It is a long season and he needs to keep the Capitals calm, and trying to play smart, dedicated hockey.
Hopefully, they can get 100 percent healthy, and continue to get production from the role guys like Matt Bradley, Tomas Fleischmann, and Brendan Morrison.
The Capitals need to commit to better defense, especially from the large guys like Jeff Schultz, Shaone Morrisonn, and John Erskine.
Washington also need to learn from the first quarter of the season, and stay out of penalty troubles and avoid third period collapses. Start to use the killer instinct and put teams away.
The DC fans are out in force (finally), and we are with you. Feed off of that and "Rock the Red."
As always, enjoy the game!
