Fortnightly Record: 5-2-0 (10 pts)
Overall: 40-10-4 (84 pts)
After a gritty 5-game winning streak, the Capitals went ice cold last Saturday (no pun intended) against Dallas in the second quarter, giving up four goals. But they powered back for three goals in the third period, not quite enough to earn any points.
The Caps continue to lead the Metropolitan Division by a wide margin (14 pts) and continue to have the most points in the league overall (7 pts better than Dallas and Chicago, even having played fewer games).
Alex Ovechkin continues to shine and should be in every conversation about winning this year’s MVP (Hart Memorial Trophy), which would be his fourth if it happens. Case in point, he is only playing better; he recorded a hat-trick against the Wild and has 35 goals on the season, good enough for best in the league.
The Caps next play at home on Tuesday, February 16th against the LA Kings.
