The Washington Capitals are playing some very good hockey and that continued Wednesday in Philadelphia.
Buoyed by shootout goals by TJ Oshie and Evgeny Kuznetsov, the Capitals won their fourteenth game of the season (out of 20 tries). After seeing their six-game winning streak tragically end against the Coyotes in overtime Monday, the Capitals extended another impressive streak, collecting a standings point in their 13th straight game.
The @Capitals have collected a point in every game since Oct. 14 (13 GP).

The point streak is the sixth-longest in Capitals history. The last time the Capitals posted a streak as similarly as long was in 2016-17 when they did it 14-consecutive games with Barry Trotz at the helm. The Capitals won the Presidents’ Trophy that year for the second consecutive year.
The Capitals, who have won 11 of their last 12 games, have not lost in regulation since October 14 – the third week of the season. The Capitals are 7-0-1 against the Eastern Conference this season.
And oh yeah. They are in first place. Of the whole dang league.
