Capitals at Sharks preview: The Caps are so much more than Ovechkin

In fact, the highest scorer on the team is defenseman John Carlson , who is putting together a Norris Trophy type year with 37 points (8 goals, 29 assists) and a plus-16 rating.

With both Martin Jones and Holtby allowing in the occasional soft goal, tonight’s game could be a highlight reel night.

Top power plays know how to exploit the Sharks and it’s important that San Jose stay out of the box and limit the chances it gives Ovechkin, Oshie, Carlson, Kuznetsov, etc.

Melker Karlsson isn’t a scoring machine, but he does bring that penalty kill prowess that will keep him in the lineup.

Dylan Gambrell scored in the last game and I’ll cross my fingers and hope that means he’s starting to make a push for a permanent roster spot.

No goals for Ovechkin tonight, Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Erik Karlsson manage to shut Ovie’s line down.
