Saying Goodbye to 2009

With last night's win over New Jersey in the books, the Caps have now played 82 regular season games (i.e. a full-season's worth) in calendar year 2009. Their record? An impressive 50-21-11. They've outscored opponents by an average score of 3.43 to 2.83, have scored on 25.3% of their power plays, and have killed off 80.6% of their shorthanded opportunities. And they've played to an average home crowd of 18,260 fans, or 99.9% capacity.

Offensively, the Young Guns have been blazin', with each averaging well over a point-per-game:

And the team has gotten fantastic goaltending from it's rookie phenom:

All in all, it's been a heck of a year (with two games left) for the Caps (at least insofar as regular season accomplishments go), and one that makes even the most pessimistic among us hopeful for 2010.
