It Was My Understanding That There Would Be No Math

Ten games into the Caps' season seems like a good point at which to do some evaluatin', or at least some lookin' at numbers. This is a broad look at team stats taken from a small sample, and it's worth noting that much of the below is a comparison of this year's team so far to last year's squad rather than a comparison of this year's team to the rest of the NHL, so take it all with a shaker of salt.

The numbers, then, after ten games:
So what's the bottom line? Well, the Caps are scoring more, allowing fewer goals against, scoring more regularly on the power play and killing off penalties at a greater rate than last year. To me, those are all positive indicators and if the team can cut down on the penalties and shots on goal against, progress should continue.
