- Once again, the world thought Alex Ovechkin broke Sergei Fedorov's record for most goals by a Russian-born player. Once again, the world was wrong. [CSNMA (and again), RMNB (and again)]
- Evgeny Kuznetsov is droppin' dimes, as the kids say. [Puck Daddy]
- From Elias: Jason Chimera, who entered play on Thursday with no points in his last eight games, broke his slump by scoring two goals with one assist in the Capitals' 5-2 win in Philadelphia. Chimera notched all his points in a 7:33 span during the second period, sandwiching an assist between a pair of power play goals. This is the seventh time that Chimera has tallied at least three points in one game during his 15-year NHL career but it's only the second time that he's had a three-point period. There must be something about Philadelphia that brings out the best in Chimera, since his other three-point period was also against the Flyers at Wells Fargo Center. He posted one goal and two assists in the second period of Washington's 7-0 win there on Nov. 1, 2013.

Justin Williams said he should be up for the Selke because he's doing a good job shutting Ovechkin down.— Isabelle Khurshudyan (@ikhurshudyan) November 13, 2015
