“He’s been the biggest reason, in terms of players, that we’ve been able to change the culture here into a championship level culture and team," goaltender Braden Holtby said.

The Capitals aren't expected to recall another goaltender before Monday's game against the Blues, meaning Holtby is at least healthy enough to dress, if not start.

Evgeny Kuznetsov’s goal late in regulation salvages a point for hosts in a game goalie Braden Holtby is forced to leave after taking a stick to the face.

General Manager Brian MacLellan discussed Washington's faceoff woes Friday, pointing out the team's need to get closer to a 50 percent rate of success.

The general manager didn’t explicitly say winger Andre Burakovsky is the forward he might be looking to swap, but there has been plenty of speculation.

“I understand it’s for the best but in the heat of the moment you don’t want to leave the game,” the Capitals forward said.

Washington goalie makes 39 saves in 4-2 win, extending streak to 14 straight over Boston.

Marchand took issue with Eller's celebration in the season-opener and grabbed him for a fight when Eller wasn't expecting it. “Guys remember,” Eller said Thursday. “It’s just memory. I think people can remember a few months back. ... Yeah, it’s a long season."

The Capitals have scored 47 five-on-five goals in the past 17 games, dating back to the start of December, and the fourth line has contributed 10 of them, impressive considering the unit gets the least amount of ice time.

Devante Smith-Pelly and John Carlson recorded a video message to invite Divyne Apollon and his Metro Maple Leafs team to Monday's game against the Blues.

Defenseman Michal Kempny scores 16:08 into the third period to give Washington a 3-2 win over Detroit.

The Capitals aren’t expected to be involved in any blockbusters, but they’ve always done something in February.

Washington is 1 for 27 on the power play over the past eight games.

And just like that, Washington’s lead over Pittsburgh in the Metro Division has disappeared.

Ovechkin has 30 goals, making him just the second player in NHL history to score at least 30 in each of his first 14 seasons.

Second straight defeat leaves Washington’s lead in the Metro at just a point, but Alex Ovechkin hits another milestone.

Newly-minted all-stars John Carlson and Braden Holtby discussed their selection to the 2019 game in San Jose.

Captain Alex Ovechkin will skate beside center Evgeny Kuznetsov and right wing Tom Wilson, Washington's top line in the playoffs. Ovechkin hasn't scored a goal in six games.
