Less than two weeks ago it looked like Armageddon for the Capitals. They were in the middle of a losing streak, and even their own fans, who have been among the most supportive in all of hockey, were beginning to turn on them. The losing streak lasted a few more games before the Caps were finally able to break through.
Now, the Caps have won two straight games and all seems right in the world. Caps fans are starting to feel good. Like really good. Like way too good considering what has happened over the past month, good. Check out this video from last night's game, via Dan Steinberg.
How quickly things can change. Did they forget all about the losing streak? Or are they just so happy that they won't look so horrible on the upcoming edition of 24/7 that they are willing to forget all about it.
One thing I always try to remember, especially in sports, is that things are never as bad or as good as they seem. I wrote that the Capitals weren't worth writing off after their extended losing streak, but at the same time, it's a little bit too early to start calling for the Penguins after a two game winning streak. All I'm saying is, be careful what you wish for.
