The Capitals hit the road and took care of business as they beat the Calgary Flames 6-2.
Alex Ovechkin broke the tie in Calgary with the 900th point of his career.
Last season 21 of the Capitals’ 82 games were decided in either overtimes or shootouts, roughly one in every four games.
Alex Ovechkin is a three-time MVP. Bryce Harper should have a MVP trophy of his own in the coming weeks. John Wall is a multiple time All-Star.
Alex Ovechkin's punishment by Barry Trotz is reminiscent of other athletes and the way they are perceived in the media and around their leagues.
