6 - Number of multipoint games for John Carlson this season, which leads the League. In fact, last night’s win over the ‘Hawks was just the second time in the last seven games in which Carlson was held to “only” one point; only once has he been held off the scoresheet all together, a 0-point night way back on 10/5 in the OT loss to Carolina.
Carlson now also sits atop the NHL’s scoring list all by himself with 18 points on the season, which puts him among some pretty rare and special company:
John Carlson recorded an assist on Ovechkin's goal, his 18th points (3g, 15a) in his 10th game. He becomes the third defenseman in NHL history to record 18 points in his team's first 10 games (Bobby Orr, twice: 18; Paul Coffey: 20).— CapitalsPR (@CapitalsPR) October 21, 2019
