Still keeping an eye out on these Cap players setting a new milestone for the franchise and themselves:
Nicklas Backstrom – Two power play assists shy of passing Brad Richards (282) for 50th place on all time power play assist list
John Carlson – One goal shy of passing Larry Murphy (86) for sixth place among Capitals defensemen
Alex Ovechkin – Six goals shy of passing Brendan Shanahan (656) for 13th place on the NHL’s all-time goals list
Let’s see if Nicky and Carly can do it at home today!
