The Washington Capitals have had two main performance issues this season and those are the inability to get even league average goaltending and special teams that consistently lose them games.
That was on display again in a 5-4 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Alex Ovechkin recorded the primary assist on Kuznetsov's goal. With that assist, Ovechkin has passed Sergei Zubov (619) for the third most assists by a Russian player in NHL history.
