Most analysts' prognostications are out today and, for the most part, it's nothing we haven't heard before. But The Hockey News caught my attention with one particular item about the Caps.
They call it the x-factor.
"Washington has the league's third-best home record, while the Rangers stumbled on the road, posting a 4-12-3 mark in their final 19 contests away from Madison Square Garden. Winning even one game in the jungle that promises to be Verizon Center will be a tall order for New York."
Welcome to the red jungle.
