The Washington Capitals are absolutely on fire, folks. After scoring seven goals against the Penguins Monday, the Caps went out and did it again against the St. Louis Blues.
Let me hit you up with some asinine stats. The Caps have scored five or more goals in eight of their last 11 games. They’ve also scored six or more goals in four of their last nine.
According to Tarik El-Bashir, 18 different Capitals have scored during the last 11 games. According to Ben Raby, the Caps have scored 25 times in the last four games and none of those tallies have come from Alex Ovechkin’s stick (6 assists).
Thursday in St. Louis, the Capitals chased goaltender Jake Allen twice. In the same game. Every Caps forward tallied a point by the second period.
I’m thinking this good luck can’t last forever so let’s enjoy this while it lasts. Here are all the Capitals goals from tonight.
