The Washington Capitals didn’t put out their best effort of the season against the Detroit Red Wings, but you don’t really need to do so to get a win in Motown these days. The Caps fought through a couple bad periods, eventually taking down the Wings 5-2 after a couple empty net strikes by their captain.
The Caps out-shot the Wings 34 to 27, but were out-attempted at five-on-five 45 to 38.
Thanks to the last of his 3 tonight, @Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin has joined Marcel Dionne, Mike Gartner, Jaromir Jagr & Mats Sundin as the only 5 players to record 20+ goals in each of their first 15 career NHL seasons
