    Capitals' John Carlson: Battled broken foot/ankle this season

    Carlson dealt with a broken foot/ankle in the regular season, Katie Brown of NHL.com reports. During the regular season, the Caps used "lower body" to describe Carlson's injury, but with their 2015-16 campaign now in the books, the media is privy to full disclosure. A savvy playmaker from the blue line, Carlson was limited to 56 games, though he didn't look any worse for the wear when it mattered most. Carlson tied Alex Ovechkin for a team-best 12 points through the first two rounds of the playoffs.

    Capitals' John Carlson: Registers Game 6 power-play goal

    Carlson sent Game 6 into overtime with a 5-on-3 goal Tuesday before conceding the series to the Penguins in overtime. Carlson had a fantastic series against Pittsburgh as he logged a point in each of the six outings, but will certainly be disappointed to see yet another Washington season end in defeat. While the defenseman did have an injury shortened regular season, he appeared in just 56 contests, his eight goals and 31 assists were vital to securing the Presidents' Trophy. Unless there is a significant shakeup within the organization, the 26-year-old will continue anchoring the Caps blue line well into the future.

    Capitals' John Carlson: Extends point streak to four with goal

    Carlson scored a goal while taking two shots in 30:15 of ice time in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Penguins. Carlson's ice time has risen in each of the last three games, as the Capitals have begun to lean on their top blueliner more as times get desperate. The Penguins now hold a commanding 3-1 series lead despite conceding a point to Carlson in every game, meaning the American defenseman will likely have to add even more offense to his game for the Capitals to stage a comeback. His two shots on goal marked a personal series low, but Carlson should be able to bounce back nicely with the series shifting back to Washington for Game 5.

    Carlson garnered an assist and fired a game-high eight shots on goal in Monday's Game 3 loss to Pittsburgh.

Despite the loss, the American rearguard is producing at an elite level this postseason, having recorded points in three straight and nine in nine games to date.

    Capitals' John Carlson: Tallies goal, assist Saturday

    Carlson had a goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Flyers The talented blueliner has a five-game point streak going in which he has totaled three goals and eight points to go with a plus-6 rating. Against a wounded Flyers team, Carlson should continue to be a factor offensively and is worth starting in daily fantasy formats as the playoffs go on -- especially now that he's back on the top power-play unit and has been paired once again with the steady Brooks Orpik.

    Capitals' John Carlson: Opens up scoring in second period

    Carlson scored a power-play goal on four shots, adding two PIM and two hits in Thursday's 2-0 win over the Flyers in Game 1. Carlson sat in Sunday's season finale to rest for the playoffs and it didn't seem to cool off the blueliner. The 26-year-old reached the scoresheet in four of five to end the year, and kept the momentum going by opening up the scoring in the second period of Game 1. The 2008 first-round pick only had two goals on the power play during the regular season, but proves to be a threat on the man advantage with 24 total points in his campaign.

    Capitals' John Carlson: Will sit Sunday's game against Anaheim

    Carlson will rest Sunday's game against Anaheim, Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post reports. Carlson sitting is most likely a coach's decision, as the Capital have locked up the one-seed in the Eastern Conference and have little to play for in the regular season's final game. Expect him to be back in the lineup once game one of the playoffs comes around. Mike Weber and Taylor Chorney will pick up minutes with Carlson sitting.

    Capitals' John Carlson: Second straight multi-point outing

    Carlson lit the lamp, adding an assist and a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Blues. Carlson is picking up steam as the Caps head towards the playoffs, notching points in three straight for a total of five. The blueliner's stats aren't up to par with last season's, but it's safe to say they would be if the 26-year-old was healthy all year. Still, 39 points is the Massachusetts native's second-highest total of his career, and it's come in just 56 appearances (one game remaining).

    Capitals' John Carlson: Bags two assists Thursday

    Carlson picked up a pair of assists Thursday night in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Penguins. It wasn't all pretty for Carlson, as he also had four giveaways in the contest. But what's important to note is that the puck-moving defenseman hasn't seemed to be bothered by a lower-body injury that caused him to miss time in late March. Carlson has reached the 30-assist level for the third time in his six-year career.
