A look at why some of the Caps may have a couple of bruises this morning

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

33 - Number of shots blocked by the Caps in last night's win over the Islanders, the most they've had in a regular-season outing since they absorbed 34 against Montreal on April 9, 2013; it's also the second-highest blocked-shot total in the Ovechkin era.

T.J. Oshie, Matt Niskanen, and Nate Schmidt led the way last night with four blocked shots apiece, and only three Caps (Zach Sill, Jason Chimera and Taylor Chorney) did not register a single blocked shot.
