General Manager Brian MacLellan acknowledged he's been "a little disappointed" with the blueline duo, but their play seems to be trending up since returning from the bye week.

Winger reaches 500 career points as Washington takes care of Western Conference leaders on the road, 5-1.

“Offensively, we kind of think the same, and we’re comfortable with each other, so that’s not an issue,” Connolly said. “We’re comfortable as a line because we’ve played together so much."

Washington’s penalty problem isn’t going away, with the team tied for the most minor penalties this season.

Washington manages only 20 shots on goal, 13 of which came in the third period, in a 3-0 loss to the Blue Jackets.

The Capitals forward says he's tried to kick his casual cursing habit, but his emotions usually take over.

Kuznetsov had two goals and two assists in Washington’s 6-4 victory over Los Angeles.

The Capitals’ team president is the sixth member of his family to reach the sport’s pinnacle.

Kuznetsov has four goals and four assists in Washington's five games since the bye week. “I think for our organization, for our team to do well, we need him at the top of his game,” General Manager Brian MacLellan said.

Evgeny Kuznetsov’s late goal forces extra period, but Florida scores on its fourth power play of the game in overtime.

Seven forwards average at least 22 minutes of ice time per game. There were just two, Florida's Aleksander Barkov and Los Angeles’s Anze Kopitar, who played that much last year.

This is the first time all season that Washington has an injury- and suspension-free roster.

“It takes your mind off things," Holtby said. "That’s kind of why I feel it helps me on game days. To play a little bit, you kind of forget about all that. Whether you’re in a good or bad mood, it doesn’t matter; you kind of come back to square one."

After Pheonix Copley allows a leaky goal late in regulation, Kuznetsov gives Washington a 4-3 overtime win.

Djoos had left thigh surgery for compartment syndrome in December but could be an option to play Saturday after completing a two-game conditioning stint in Hershey.

"We’re always active," General Manager Brian MacLellan said. "We’re trying to see what’s happening in the market."

Beagle makes his first appearance at Capital One Arena with the Canucks, whom the Capitals top, 3-2.

“We’ve been addressing it verbally for quite a while now, and there hasn’t been a response, so hopefully this will work,” General Manager Brian MacLellan said.


  • Perspective

The Capitals have lost eight of their past nine games, and the biggest change since the Stanley Cup has been behind the bench.
