The Capitals rolled out the red carpet (literally) for their captain at Verizon tonight, honoring Alex Ovechkin for his 500th career goal, the fifth-fastest in history.
No scoring in the first period despite 13 shots for the home team. Justin Williams took some friendly fire late in the period, his likelihood to return is...*gulp* still unknown.
By the way, here's what's at stake for our Vezina's Secret® model:
Braden Holtby is 1 win away from passing Don Beaupre (128) for second place all-time on the Capitals franchise list. Amazing.— Jason Rogers (@HeyJayJRogers) January 14, 2016
