A look at the Capitals' unlikely "top" line

15 - Number of five-on-five goals the Caps have scored in their last 11 games, 12 of which have come with at least one member of the team's third line (Jason Chimera, Eric Fehr and Joel Ward, a.k.a. "Gang Green") on the ice. Of those 12, seven have come with all three on the ice.

On the flip side of the coin, Alex Ovechkin hasn't been on the ice for a five-on-five goal since he scored one himself against Florida a dozen games ago.
