5v5 stats

-Troy Brouwer had the best on-ice shot attempt battle with a +5

-Eric Fehr had the worst on-ice shot attempt battle with a -5

-Matt Niskanen was on the ice for the most Caps shot attempts (18)

-Brooks Orpik was on the ice for the most shot attempts against (17)

-Niskanen, Brouwer, and Mike Green had the most individual shot attempts (4)

Non-fancy stuff

-Was Holtby screened on the first goal? He probably should have had it. Oh, well. He’s been dynamite. Every goalie gives up a lot of goals that they should have had over the course of 82 games.

-Barry Trotz is pissed at Jason Chimera, so maybe Burakovsky finally get in the lineup again on Saturday. My lines:

8-19-43

90-92-20

21-65-16

83-46-42
