And there we have it. 69 games (nice), 105 points, and 50 wins later, the Caps have the beautiful X next to their name in the standings. A comfortable 19 point lead over Boston in the standings with 13 games remaining, there’s no looking back for the Caps, who are still yet to lose back to back games in regulation. They had a tough stretch there with 4 games in 5 nights, then a 3 games West Coast swing ending with a bad loss to San Jose, but they finally got some days off at home to rest the legs and played a pretty good games last night vs Carolina, winning 2-1 in OT thanks to this Ovi GWG
That was number 42 on the season for Ovi, and assist number 50 for Kuz. If Ovechkin scores 8 goals in the last 13 games he’ll become just the 3rd player ever to have 7 seasons of 50 or more goals. Not too shabby.
So hold onto your butts, the playoffs are locked and loaded.
