    What amazes me the most is that the Caps did not use this as a springboard to go to the next gear to win this game. Wonder if this old, slow team has reached the end of its rope for this season with age and injuries and constant changing of lines?

    Next time someone’s in Toronto, please stop by their office and find out whether it is a dartboard or roulette wheel that they use.
