Ok, I'm Disappointed

The Caps continued their losing streak against the Phoenix Coyotes by losing 3-2 on New Year's Day. Once again, they let the Coyotes get ahead by 3-1 after the 1st period. I realize the Caps have been slowed by injuries, the flu, mono, fighting suspensions and a brutal schedule, but I'm tired of this losing streak. This team has to find a way to win again because dammit I want them to go to the playoffs.

Okay, so maybe I'm being totally unrealistic since no one predicted them to go to the playoffs this year, but the Caps have won some great games against better teams this season. They're also a team that sticks up for each other which should lead to some great team chemistry...which would hopefully turn into winning games, but that hasn't been the case lately.

When the Caps were winning consistently, they were getting offense from everyone - Clark, Pettinger, Zubrus to name a few - not just their goal scoring leaders Ovie & then Semin. So, what happened to that? I know Hanlon's felt compelled to mix up the lines, but it doesn't appear to be helping.

Here's hoping the Caps play a good game against Montreal tomorrow night.

Let's go Caps!
