A sloooooooow start even with the one win

With the lackluster hockey they're playing (the Edmonton game was the exception), the Washington Capitals seem to have forgotten that they're playing in a more competitive division this season.  The Metropolitan Division with Pittsburgh, Carolina, NY Islanders, Columbus, New Jersey, NY Rangers and Philadelphia is tougher than playing Carolina, Florida, Winnipeg, and Tampa Bay.  The Caps sit in 7th place with 2 whopping points after five games.

They started slow last season under then rookie head coach Adam Oates, but they had the excuse that there was barely a training camp ahead of the strike shortened season.  This year they played decent hockey during training camp and preseason, but they've struggled to gain their footing since then.

Let's go Caps!
