A look at how the Caps have gotten offensive input throughout the lineup

NHL: Washington Capitals at Pittsburgh Penguins Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

11 - Number of players on the Capitals who have hit double-digit goal totals this season. The Caps are one of eight teams to have as many as 11 players to score at least 10 goals this season, and could finish the year with as many as 12, with Alex Chiasson sitting at nine goals with two games remaining.

The team has been able to achieve this balanced attack throughout the lineup thanks in large part to some career years by some key guys. Of the 11 players to crack the 10-goal mark, six - John Carlson, Brett Connolly, Lars Eller, Tom Wilson, Jakub Vrana, and Dmitry Orlov - have established new career highs in goals; Wilson, Vrana, and Orlov are reaching 10 goals for the very first time.
