- Mattieu Perrault returned to action after missing Saturday's game with the flu. It was his second 2 goal performance of the year.
- Eric Fehr played on the number one line with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom. He was all over the place and picked up 1 goal, 1 assist and led all shooters with 7 shots on goal.
- The Caps 3 goals came from a combined distance of less than 10 feet from the goal line. That is called crashing the net.
- Ovechkin, Brooks Laich, and Mike Knuble each had 1 assist on the night.
- Michael Nuevirth stopped 22 of 24 shots and came up big in the third to collect his 13th win of the year.
- After being bounced from the top spot in the SE Division, this win puts the Capitals back into first place.
