- Mike Green lit the lamp for the 18th time, and has now scored at least 18 goals in his last 3 seasons. He leads all NHL defensemen in goals, points and assists (54). His current point total (72) is one shy of his career best, set last season. What slump?
- What a solid effort from Jason Chimera. 5 hits, 1 blocked shot, 1 takeaway (and then showing his amazing speed with the puck) and an assist. We also saw the grit we had heard so much about, as several times he skated quite the distance to stick up for fellow Caps. I'm pretty sure Chimera would have skated up the concourse to fight a beer vendor for giving the wrong change last night.
- It seems sometimes that Alex Semin is playing a game of horse with himself. Laterally-moving, one-legged wrister? No problem.
- With some nifty stick work Mathieu Perreault was able to add his second goal in as many games. It'll be interesting to see what happens when Brendan Morrison makes his return.
- The Caps handled the puck like it was a hot potato last night with horrible turnovers and bad passes all over the ice.
- DC is now 10-12 in overtime games this season and have only 2 wins in regulation in their last 11 contests. Is trouble brewing?
- It seemed like offensively the Caps of old took the ice last night, relying more on blasts from the point than hard work up-front for goals. I realize that Brooks Laich (hurt pride) is still out with his broken face, but Mike Knuble putting up only 1 shot on goal simply can't happen.
- The "Not so" Special teams: While the Caps were 1-for-5 with their man advanage, the Senators converted 3 of their 4 chances. I think I just threw up in my mouth a bit.
