The Washington Post headline for this morning’s story about the Capitals blared “Lifeless Capitals drop 4th straight”.  That’s true, although there are a number of other adjectives that come to mind besides “lifeless”.  How about lazy?  Or disorganized?  Or even sad?  In last night’s 7-1 loss at the hands of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Washington was all those things...
