So far, the results have been mixed with the NHL odds as the Broadway Blueshirts young defensive corps has been ruthlessly exploited by opponents. For the Washington Capitals the look has been much more impressive compared top a year ago when the Caps were suffering from a severe Stanley Cup championship hangover and did not take care of their responsibilities on the back end compared to their full 200-foot game during an epic title run. Second year head coach Todd Reirden has better command of the bench for 2019-20 and the Caps boast one of the top goal scoring units in hockey.
