The Capitals needed that overtime win against the Devils last Thursday. After conceding a heartbreaking goal that tied the game with 30 seconds remaining, the Caps got a quick OT goal and salvaged the two points.
After a huge letdown against Nashville at home on Saturday, the Capitals went into New York and skated away with a 5-2 victory over the 1st place Rangers. Alex Ovechkin scored two more goals to increase his lead over 2nd place by nine goals (49).
Thankfully the Ottawa Senators turned cold this past week, losing 3 straight, largely due to an injury to their goalie. The Caps have some breathing room in the playoff hunt.
