Capitals

One stat that conveys the struggles some D.C. teams have experienced in the playoffs

Playoffs are supposed to be fun. No matter the league, when a team qualifies and competes in the postseason, fans should look forward to the upcoming experience.

However, please excuse D.C. supporters if they don't share in that enthusiasm that people in many other cities possess.

The latest gut-punch-then-kick-and-one-extra-punch-for-good-measure came on Monday night, with the Capitals dropping Game 3 to the Maple Leafs in yet another overtime affair. And immediately after the result, people flooded Twitter with negativity and sadness.

But here's one tweet that stood out amongst the waterfall of womp womp:

For the Caps, their last four playoff losses happened in OT (which meant that, duh, they were decided by one-goal) on top of two more close affairs they suffered at the hands of the Penguins last year. Things aren't much better on the diamond, either, with the Nationals also having issues finishing tight ballgames.

The Capitals will get another chance to end that run of tough luck on Wednesday. Or, you know, they could bypass the one-goal thing altogether and just blow the Leafs out by, like, five. That would be pretty nice, wouldn't it?
