The Goals Project

We are going to try something to assess the ability of the Caps to find "the bakery."  We're going to chart as best we can each and every goal the Caps score this season.  Below you will find a snapshot through the first four games of every Caps goal scored, in the order in which they have been scored, displayed from the perspective of how you would have viewed them from your television.  Game-winning goals are circled  (click the image for a larger view).

As you can see, "going to the bakery," in Brooks Laich's terms, has its benefits.  But this is not news; we are just providing a visual representation of what you already know to be true.

As for the game winners, so far they are:

Game 1, Goal 4: Mike Green
Game 2 (none, shootout)
Game 3, Goal 12: Dennis Wideman
Game4, Goal 14: Marcus Johansson
