A look at some steady offense provided by some of the Caps’ top guns

NHL: Washington Capitals at Calgary Flames Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports

5 - Number of Capitals players who are currently averaging at least a point per game so far this season. That’s tied with Pittsburgh for the most overall, and leads the League when counting only players who have played at least five games this year (the PenguinsJustin Schultz rounds out their five but has only appeared in four games).

Evgeny Kuznetsov leads the group with 1.50 points per game (tied for seventh-most in the League), followed by John Carlson and Alex Ovechkin (1.40 pts/gm apiece), Nicklas Backstrom (1.30 pts/gm) and T.J. Oshie (1.00 pts/gm).
