      Capitals' John Carlson: Two helpers in Friday's win

      Carlson picked up two helpers Friday, contributing to a 4-2 win over the Lightning. Carlson has 157 career assists since 2009-10, when he entered the league with Washington. Just over 75 percent of his points have been helpers, which says a lot about his superior on-ice vision. Very few blueliners across the league can set up scores like No. 74.

      Capitals' John Carlson: Picks up goal Saturday

      Carlson had a goal in Saturday's 7-3 blowout over Colorado. With just two points in November heading into Saturday's contest, the goal was a welcome relief for Carlson, as he seems to be struggling in the absence of usual partner Brooks Orpik, who remains out of the lineup with a lower-body injury. Despite the slump, Carlson is on pace for another 50 point campaign, and remains a contender for the Norris Trophy. With Orpik expected back soon, continue to play the 25-year-old defenseman with confidence.

      Capitals' John Carlson: Ends four-game scoreless streak Thursday

      Carlson scored a power-play goal and added an assist in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Bruins. After being held scoreless for four games, Carlson notched his 11th and 12th points of the season Thursday. He finished plus-1 in a team-high 25:20, while playing nearly 5:00 over four PPs for the Caps. Washington's offense is too deadly for Carlson to sustain another drought like he just did.

      Capitals' John Carlson: Dishes out trio of assists

      Carlson dished out three assists in Friday's win over the Oilers. What a start to the season for Carlson, who has cranked out 10 points through seven games. The 25-year-old bueliner has recorded at least one point in five straight games and is averaging 23:57 of ice time on one of the league's most dangerous teams. After exploding for a career-high 12 goals and 55 points last season, it looks like another big year is on the way for the way-way rearguard.

      Capitals' John Carlson: Gets power-play goal Saturday

      Carlson scored a power-play goal in Saturday's 4-1 win over Carolina. Carlson now has goals in consecutive games and has five points in the first four games. Logging a significant amount of ice time and occupying Mike Green's old spot on the top power-play unit with Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, and T.J. Oshie, the 25-year-old defenseman could best even last year's impressive 12-goal, 55-point campaign. He is a must start every night.
