A look at Evgeny Kuznetsov's prolific helpers

5 - Number of Capitals who have posted at least three assists in back-to-back regular-season games in franchise history. Evgeny Kuznetsov became the latest to join that club with a four-assist game against Columbus last night and three helpers Sunday against New York, and was the first Cap to do so since Nicklas Backstrom did it back in 2008 (almost eight years to the day).

The only other players to achieve this feat were Adam Oates, Calle Johansson and Michal Pivonka.
