  • Capitals' Connor McMichael: Pots pair in win

    McMichael scored twice on three shots in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Devils.

    McMichael had a standout game, notching the first two goals for the Capitals to give them a 2-1 lead. His second goal started off a string of four consecutive for Washington as they secured a decisive win with a solid effort from netminder Charlie Lindgren. This was a milestone for McMichael as it was his 10th goal of the season which establishes a new career high for the 23-year old center.

  • Capitals' Dylan Strome: Three-point effort in win

    Strome notched a goal and two assists during Tuesday's 6-2 win over New Jersey.

    Strome was held scoreless in the first two periods but he opened up the scoring in the third period as the Capitals pulled away from the Devils. He followed up his tally with primary assists on both goals by Alex Ovechkin in 16:12 of ice time. Over the past nine games, Strome has been a consistent offensive threat for the Capitals, recording five goals and six assists. The 26-year old center is looking to smash his previous career high of 23 goals as he has already amassed 21 tallies with 28 games still remaining for the Capitals.

  • Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: First three-point game of season

    Ovechkin scored two goals and added a helper in Tuesday's 6-2 victory over the Devils.

    Ovechkin was held scoreless in the first two periods but he would not be denied. With the Capitals only up 2-1 heading into the final frame, he added a primary assist on Dylan Strome's lone goal and then added two more of his own, including a power-play marker with only 33 seconds left for his 16th of the season. Over the past nine games, Ovechkin has been an offensive juggernaut for the Capitals, tallying an impressive eight goals and five assists. This is an improvement for the 38-year sniper as he has struggled to score for much of the season.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Busy in Tuesday's win

    Lindgren made 37 saves in a 6-2 win over the Devils on Tuesday.

    The Devils pumped double-digit shots towards Lindgren in each period but he was up to the task. Finishing with a .949 save percentage, he kicked aside all seven power play shots sent his and received offensive help from his teammates as they provided a lead for him for the majority of the game. Lindgren has not been consistent as of late, allowing 11 goals over a two game span at the end of January and then shutting out the Bruins on Feb. 10. That being said, his regular season has been solid as he has totalled three shutouts and a 2.65 GAA.

  • Capitals' Nic Dowd: Sustains upper-body injury

    Dowd (upper body) won't return to Tuesday's contest versus the Devils.

    Dowd was hurt in the first period and didn't appear in the second. The 33-year-old entered Tuesday on a three-game point streak (one goal, two assists). If he misses time, Nicolas Aube-Kubel figures to enter the lineup.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Slated to start

    Lindgren is on track to guard the home goal versus the Devils on Tuesday, Sammi Silber of The Hockey News reports.

    Lindgren wasn't great in his last start last Tuesday versus the Avalanche, surrendering four goals on 35 shots en route to a 6-3 defeat. He'll try to get back in the win column in a tough home matchup with a New Jersey squad that's scoring 3.38 goals per game on the road this season, fourth in the NHL.

  • Capitals' Martin Fehervary: Labeled week-to-week

    Fehervary (lower body) is expected to miss 1-2 weeks after coach Spencer Carbery told reporters Monday, "Week-to-week. Whether it's one or two, that's what we're looking at," per Tarik El-Bashir of Monumental Sports Network.

    Fehervary isn't exactly an offensive powerhouse with just two goals and 10 assists through 47 games this season. As such, his absence will only impact formats that value hits and blocked shots, of which he has 108 and 71, respectively. With a spot open in the lineup, both Alexander Alexeyev and Ethan Bear should be in contention for minutes, with Alexeyev as the most likely replacement on the left side of the Capitals' blue line.

  • Capitals' T.J. Oshie: Unlocks scoring milestone

    Oshie converted a power-play chance to pick up career goal No. 300 in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Canadiens. "This one means a lot," Oshie said in a report by Sean Farrell of NHL.com. "Coming into the year, the last couple of years I've had a lot of time out of the lineup from injuries. I don't really have many milestones or goals that I really set for myself, but this is one coming into the year that I wanted to reach, so it feels good."

    Oshie's milestone goal gave the Capitals a 2-1 advantage through the first period, but there would be two more ties ahead of Aliaksei Protas' game-winning tally. It seems like Oshie is rounding into vintage form based on eight goals and four assists -- with six of them being power-play points -- through 15 games in 2024.

  • Capitals' Nick Jensen: Secures helper in narrow win

    Jensen recorded an assist in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Canadiens.

    Jensen almost assuredly will fail to improve on his prior season's point total for the first time in four years. Eight helpers represent his output through 53 games, but Jensen hasn't missed a single contest this season, and the no-frills defenseman has an outside chance at setting a new career high in blocked shots, having already posted 78 of those in 2023-24.

  • Capitals' Anthony Mantha: Goal, assist in win

    Mantha tallied a goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-3 win over Montreal.

    Mantha opened the scoring 3:40 into the first period, burying a rebound off Jake Allen, before adding a second point with an assist on Aliaksei Protas' game-winner in the third. The 29-year-old Mantha now has back-to-back two-point games and nine points (five goals, four assists) over his last nine contests. He's up to 17 goals with 11 assists through 49 games this season.

  • Capitals' Sonny Milano: Goal in return

    Milano scored a goal on his lone shot in Saturday's 4-3 win over Montreal.

    After missing Washington's last 27 games with an upper-body injury, Milano made an impact in his return to the lineup, deflecting a Max Pacioretty shot past Jake Allen to put the Caps ahead 3-2 early in the third period. The 27-year-old Milano has five goals and nine points in 24 games this season. He'll likely continue to skate in a middle-six role going forward.

  • Capitals' Aliaksei Protas: Goal, assist Saturday

    Protas tallied a goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-3 win over Montreal.

    Protas picked up an assist on Anthony Mantha's opening goal in the first period before adding a tally in the third, pushing a rebound past Jake Allen for the eventual game-winner in a 4-3 victory. It's the first goal since Dec. 7 for Protas, who had just one point in 18 games prior to Saturday's outing. Overall, the 23-year-old forward has four goals and 21 points through 52 games this season.

  • Capitals' Darcy Kuemper: Hangs on for win

    Kuemper stopped 28 of 31 shots in Saturday's 4-3 victory over Montreal.

    The Canadiens tied the game 3-3 in the third period before Washington answered with an Aliaksei Protas goal later in the frame, giving Kuemper his first win since Jan. 16. The 33-year-old netminder had gone 0-2-1 with an .888 save percentage in four appearances prior to Saturday's start. Overall, Kuemper is 12-12-3 with an .894 save percentage and 3.16 GAA while splitting work with Charlie Lindgren this season. The Caps are back in action Tuesday at home versus the Devils.

  • Capitals' Martin Fehervary: Sustains lower-body injury

    Fehervary suffered a lower-body injury during Saturday's game against Montreal and will miss the remainder of the contest.

    Fehervary entered Saturday's action with two goals, 12 points, 112 hits and 71 blocks in 46 appearances this season. If he misses Tuesday's game against New Jersey, Alexander Alexeyev might draw into the lineup for the first time since Jan. 20.

  • Capitals' Trevor van Riemsdyk: Good to return Saturday

    Van Riemsdyk (illness) will play Saturday versus Montreal, per Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post.

    Van Riemsdyk missed Washington's past four contests. He has eight assists, a minus-11 rating and 12 PIM in 40 games in 2023-24. Van Riemsdyk is projected to serve on the third pairing alongside Joel Edmundson.

  • Capitals' Sonny Milano: Ready to rock

    Milano (upper body) will be activated from injured reserve ahead of his return to the lineup Saturday against Montreal, per Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post.

    Milano is projected to occupy a middle-six role after missing the past 27 contests. He has supplied four goals, four assists and 20 shots on net in 23 outings this season.

  • Capitals' Darcy Kuemper: Starting in Montreal

    Kuemper will guard the road net Saturday against the Canadiens, Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post reports.

    Kuemper hasn't earned a win since Jan. 16, as he's gone 0-2-1 with an .888 save percentage over his last four outings. Overall, he's 11-12-3 with an .894 save percentage and 3.17 GAA on the season. The 33-year-old netminder will look to bounce back against a Montreal team averaging 2.78 goals per game.
