Terrific top line Tom: numbers for the morning after

In the first meeting of four this season between your Washington Capitals and the New York Rangers, the Caps played two dominant periods, got some clutch plays from Tom Wilson and received enough big saves from Braden Holtby to down the Rangers 4-2.

The Caps <a href="http://www.firestormkennel.com/tom-savage-jersey-c-1_31.html">Tom Savage Jersey Womens</a> out-shot the Rangers 40 to 29 and out-attempted them five-on-five 52 to 44.

Tom Wilson followed up his four point night against the <a href="http://www.re-visto.com/cyrus-jones-jersey-c-1_13.html">http://www.re-visto.com/cyrus-jones-jersey-c-1_13.html</a> Blackhawks with a “lesser” two point night against the Rangers. #TopLineTom now has five goals and 15 points on the season, which puts <a href="http://www.metaindice.com/brett-favre-jersey-c-1_21.html">http://www.metaindice.com/brett-favre-jersey-c-1_21.html</a> him at a 45 point pace over the full 78 games that he can play this year. The speed, power, and confidence he is showing is really fun to watch and I hope we get more and more of it going forward.

The entire first line scored <a href="http://www.syteshirt.com/20-brian-dawkins-jersey-c-1_4.html">http://www.syteshirt.com/20-brian-dawkins-jersey-c-1_4.html</a> against the Blackhawks and the entire first line was again brilliant against the Rangers. When on the ice the trio of Wilson, Alex Ovechkin, and Nicklas Backstrom all saw over 65 percent of the shot attempts, over 65 percent of the scoring chances, and over 70 percent of the high danger chances head in the right direction.

Ho-hum, Braden Holtby was phenomenal again. The Caps goaltender <a href="http://www.authenticcowboyssale.com/shop-by-players-sean-lee-jersey-c-2_8.html">Sean Lee Jersey Womens</a> stopped 27 of the 29 shots the Rangers threw his way, including a few ten-bellers in the second period when the Caps had seemingly fell asleep. Holtby is now 9-4 at home with a 2.07 goals against average and a .937 save percentage.

Jay Beagle scored only 14 seconds into Friday night’s game. That’s the fastest goal scored by a Caps player so far this year. All-time, the Caps are now 37-1-5 when Beagle scores.

In today’s edition of the “what do I have to do to play more” bullet, Christian Djoos played <a href="http://www.giantsproshops.com/18-roger-lewis-jersey-c-1_35.html">Roger Lewis Jersey</a> the least amount of minutes on the team. He received 9:21 of five-on-five action and 0 special teams time. In those nine minutes and change he had a team best shot attempt percentage (77.8 percent), scoring chance for percentage (80 percent), and high danger chance for percentage (100 percent). I would really like to see the team challenge him more to see if these numbers could be just a result of good zone starts and sheltered minutes. I personally don’t think that’s the case.

The Caps held the division lead for a grand total of 8 minutes after the win. Then the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the New Jersey Devils and tied the Caps in standings points, but in one less game giving them the division lead. It’s nice to see the boys back up near the top though.
