Earlier this afternoon on his blog, Ted's Take, Capitals owner Ted Leonsis said that the Capitals are "working hard; staying together; and trying to get healthy" while remaining positive about breaking their six-game losing streak.
He also thanked fans who have sent emails with opinions regarding the team's current struggles and possible options for change for calmly expressing their discontent and questions about the team.
Here's an excerpt from the post:
I saw Alex Ovechkin last night at the Wizards game. He was with his dad. He was upbeat, calm and quite focused and serious. He is the leader and captain of the team. I am hopeful the players take their cue from their captain.
I would like to thank so many fans for their words of advice and wisdom and support during the last 48 hours or so. Even the fans that have strong opinions regarding change have been straightforward, honest and not cursing in email. Thank you again.
