- Alex Ovechkin played another good game picking up 1 goal and 1 assist for his second consecutive 2 point performance. He appears to be playing much more like he is capable of which leads me to believe he has been suffering from a nagging injury that has been bothering him from about the 18th game this season. We'll see as the rest of the season plays out.
- John Carlson, after is little stumble on the power play, picked up assists on each of the Capitals goals.
- The Caps went 1 for 1 on the power play and 1 for 2 on the penalty kill.
- Michal Neuvirth stopped 25 of 28 shots on goal in the loss. He made several key saves late to keep the Caps in the game.
- Alexander Semin picked up an assist on the Ovechkin power play goal but was not as effective as he was in Anaheim. The Caps are definitely looking for a second line center to give him more to work with.
