Overall: 33-18-10 (76 pts)
+12 pt advantage for playoff spot
The Capitals started the week with a resounding bang. Winning two games by a combined 8-2 score.
Then they won a close game over the 1st place Islanders in a shoot-out, taking an impressive four game winning streak into Philadelphia on Sunday.
Sadly, all streaks end, and the Flyers were the reason.
Beating a Canadian team gets the Caps an A+ and winning three out of four games gets them a B, so combined they get another solid B+ this week.
Alex Ovechkin scored two more goals to keep his league-leading tally (38).
