Winning the 2004 NHL Draft Lottery has dramatically changed the fortunes of the Washington Capitals in much the same way winning the ’05 Lottery helped the Penguins. Adding Alex Ovechkin to the fold has enabled the Capitals to take home back-to-back Southeast Division crowns after missing the playoffs in four of five seasons prior. Washington, which has won a franchise record 13 consecutive games, is running away with its division for a third-consecutive season by opening a 27-point lead on the second place Tampa Bay Lightning heading into Saturday’s late games.
