Post-Game: Capitals @ Devils

My afternoon nap lasted three hours longer than I expected and that cut into the 1st period, but never-the-less, the Caps win again and here we go:

  • Is it just me or do opposing teams get at least one quality scoring chance while penalty killing? 3/4 is the way it should be great on the power play, but the Caps need to eliminate ALL short-handed opportunties.
  • "Mr. Circles" had his first two goal game in over a year (and was named the 1st star of the game). Had Koz not gone down, would he still get three minutes of power play time? Another groin injury? Oh boy.
  • With only 18:29 TOI, Alex Ovechkin ended his streak of 20 straight games of 20 minutes or more. February is Ovechkin's lowest point to game ratio (33 to 30).
  • Could a 'D' man win the MVP? We might have to be asking ourselves if Greener keeps it up. He's tearing it up with four goals in as many games.
Next up is Anze Kopitar and the Los Angeles Kings.
