The San Jose Sharks are normally a boogeyman team for the Washington Capitals, especially when the two teams play in our nation’s capital. Monday night, instead of turtling, the Capitals knifed up the Sharks, defeating them 4-1.
The Capitals outshot the Sharks 29 to 25, but were out-attempted at five-on-five 46 to 40.
Ovechkin recorded his second game-winning goal of the season against the Sharks, passing Mats Sundin for 11th place on the all-time list.
