Washington Capitals’ power play struggles as team surges

The Washington Capitals are on a hot streak, having won eight of their last 10 games. Their penalty kill has been impeccable, but their power play is struggling, ranking last in the NHL with a 7 percent conversion rate.

The Capitals have gone 43 power play opportunities with only three goals to show for it. Despite Coach Carbery’s efforts to improve the power play, it remains a work in progress. Issues with faceoffs, offensive-zone entries, and overall structure have led to the power play’s struggles.

Coach Carbery hopes to establish new patterns and shooting options for the power play. He has been experimenting with different personnel to find a winning formula. Despite underwhelming performances, Carbery is optimistic that the Capitals will eventually find their rhythm on the power play.

The underlying numbers indicate that the Capitals are due for an improvement on the power play. While they have been successful without it, they recognize the need for contributions from the power play and hope to elevate their conversion percentage in the near future.
