The former has been the case for the Bruins so far this month, as they continue to struggle to find consistency. The Washington Capitals, however, showed the rest of the NHL what an ugly stretch really looks like. The Caps have used a recent two-game win streak to soften the blow absorbed by a recent seven-game losing streak. To make matters worse, Washington has been followed all along by HBO crews for 24/7.
Speaking of 24/7, no one is hotter in the NHL right now than Sidney Crosby and the Penguins. The Pens and the Capitals are on a collision course for New Year’s Day, where they’ll take to the ice on Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.
Needless to say, there’s plenty going on in the Eastern Conference and the NHL.
Mike Milbury, Jack Edwards and Andy Brickley host The Instigators on Thursday night at 10:30 p.m., and if you have any questions about the hectic world that is the NHL right now, they’re your guys.
