The Washington Capitals answered their horrendous performance in Columbus with a much better effort in San Jose, taking down the Sharks 5-1. The team started off the western swing portion of their six game road trip in a good way.
The Caps out-shot the Sharks 29 to 26.
Alex Ovechkin gives the Caps a 3-1 lead with his NHL-leading 39th goal of the season, sitting one goal shy of his 10th career 40-goal season. Only three players in NHL history have recorded 10 or more 40-goal seasons: Wayne Gretzky (12), Marcel Dionne (10) and Mario Lemieux (10)
