Friday Fun Fact: Pittsburgh has been eliminated

You heard right, Caps fans.  The Pittsburgh Penguins have been eliminated from Stanley Cup contention.  Oh, they will probably make the playoffs, and they might even win a round or two.  But here is your Friday Fun Fact to impress at the water cooler...

Pittsburgh has a record of 1-3-0 so far.  Even if they win tomorrow against the Islanders, they will be 2-3-0 in their first five games.  No Stanley Cup winner has started the year below .500 in their first five games since the Detroit Red Wings started the 1996-1997 season 2-3-0.

Oh, and the Caps can't do any worse than 3-2-0.  They're still in the hunt.
