Welcome to rock bottom

In the last 3 games against the Panthers, the Capitals have surrendered 17 goals.

Let that sink in for a bit.

17 Goals. 3 Games.

The Panthers have 5 wins in the Southeast Division, 3 of which have come against the Caps. For the mathematically impaired, that's OVER HALF of their wins in the division.

The Caps have lost 14 of their last 20 games, and 9 of 10 on the road. Those are NOT good numbers, folks.

Let's just say I won't be grabbing for my playoff ticket deposit any time soon.

The Caps are winless on a road trip once again, with the Flightless Devilbirds up this Saturday. Right now, these two young teams are headed in opposite directions. Pittsburgh is right in the thick of the playoff race. The Caps are also knee deep in something, but it sure isn't the playoff race.

Today's BHM spotlight is on Daniel Hale Williams, a surgeon who founded the first black hospital in the United States, Provident Hospital. The school served to train Black nurses and utilized doctors of all races. In 1893, Williams performed the first successful open heart surgery. More info on Williams can be found here.
