After posting a 9 game winning streak, then losing to Detroit, the Caps are back in the winning column.
Meanwhile, the red hot Knuble deliver offensive for the Caps. Knuble admitted he is a better second half player, and he brought it forth tonight. Knuble scored his 18th and 19th of the season to fuel the Capital offense. Better yet, he added an assist, factoring into all three Caps scores. Knuble's has now scored 4 goals in his last 4 games. Joining Knuble on a multi-point game was rookie John Carlson who added 2 assists. One of the Knuble goals was made possible by an icredible fake out shot by Carlson on future Hall of Famer Marty Brodeur. By biting at the Carlson fake, Knuble was provided an easy layup.
Alex Ovechkin added two assists on the night as well.
The big win tonight put the Washington Capitals in a 94-94 deadlock tie with the Philadelphia Flyers for the first place spot in the Eastern Conference. Better yet, a Caps/Flyers match up looms on Tuesday.
