The Washington Capitals, at least so far this season, are the cream of the crop in the east, sitting first overall with 30 points.
Montreal so far are sour cream, and find themselves way down in 12th place of 15 teams with 20 points.
Washington has scored 79 goals, and have 64 scored against them.
Montreal has scored just 52 times, and have 61 against.
So c’mon Carey Price. We’re really going to need you.
And as a continuation of comparisons, Montreal is a fabulous, vibrant and cultured city. Washington has a lot of politicians.
