A look at just how often the Caps have played with their full complement of defensemen

14 - Number of times this season that the Capitals have played a game with all top-six defensemen in the lineup. The "top" pair of Brooks Orpik and John Carlson (who could return as soon as tomorrow night) have only appeared in 19 games together this year; only three of the six have played in all 72 games.

In those 14 fully staffed games, the Caps are 10-4-0, with an even-strength CF% of 52.5%.

Welcome back, John.
