12 - Combined number of points from the Caps’ blueline over the last four games; only the Rangers, Florida, and Nashville had higher point contributions from defensemen since the start of January.

And while John Carlson unsurprisingly led the way with four of those points, it was fairly evenly spread out among the rest of the team’s defense. Michal Kempny adding three points, Radko Gudas (!) and Dmitry Orlov each adding a pair, and Jonas Siegenthaler rounding out the crew with an assist. In fact, only Nick Jensen has yet to record a point in 2020.
