The Kudos for Caps campaign is in full swing in the NHL and AHL recently. Four of the last five awards for NHL Player of the Month have been awarded to a Washington Capital. Alexander Semin in October, and the other Alex guy in November and also two of the last three months at the end of the last regular season (interrupted only by Evgeni Malkin).
Not to be outdone, AHL farmhand Oskar Osala of the Hershey Bears also got into the mix as Player of the Month in November.
Remember when the Capitals were the most anonymous team in the league? My how things have changed!
