Category: Game Recaps


Oshie scored the final goal of the 5-2 win over Pittsburgh in the third period. He helped Nicklas Backstrom in the first period.

Fantasy Impact: At 49 points in 68 games (+4), the second-liner is a possibility for fantasy.

Vrana helped Nicklas Backstrom in the first period as the Caps won 5-2.

Fantasy Impact: The second line winger is a very reasonable play for fantasy at 52 points in 68 games (+3).

Category: Game Recaps


Hagelin helped Nic Dowd for a short-handed goal in the third period of the 5-2 win on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy players might want to take advantage of this back-line forward who is on a four-game point streak (25 in 57 games).

Panik scored the game-winner in the first period of the 5-2 defeat of Pittsburgh. He also helped Nic Dowd for the Caps first goal.

Fantasy Impact: The move to the fourth line appears to have invigorated Panik but he is still getting around ten minutes of ice time which limits scoring opportunities.

Category: Game Recaps


Dowd scored in the first period and short-handed in the third period; he was credited with helping Richard Panik in the first period of the 5-2 victory on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: At 15 points in 55 games (+11), picking this fourth-liner is risky for fantasy players.

Category: Game Recaps


Hathaway helped Nic Dowd in the first period as the Caps defeated Pittsburgh 5-2.

Fantasy Impact: The Caps fourth line is making an impact in real life but picking this winger with 16 points in 65 games (+6) is not recommended for fantasy.

Jensen helped Richard Panik in the first period of the 5-2 victory on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Not much too look at for fantasy in this defenseman with only eight points in 67 games.

Carlson helped Alex Ovechkin twice in the third period of the 6-5 overtime loss on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: The Caps defenseman continues to lead the NHL in points for defensemen at 75 in 67 games (+12).

Category: Game Recaps


Samsonov stopped 33 of 39 shots by the NY Rangers in the 6-5 defeat on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: After a hot start, the rookie has not won since Jan 31. His season stats (GAA 2.55, save pct .913) don't reflect the downturn, but certainly the defense in front of him bears a lot of blame.

Category: Game Recaps


Kovalchuk scored in the second period as well as helping Carl Hagelin in the first period and Alex Ovechkin in the third as the Caps lost to the NY Rangers 6-5 in overtime.

Fantasy Impact: Overall, the Russian has 26 points in 44 games (-3) and seems to be adjusting to the Caps system.

Category: Game Recaps


Eller helped Ilya Kovalchuk in the second period of the Caps 6-5 overtime loss to the NY Rangers.

Fantasy Impact: The third-line center is borderline for fantasy (if he's cheap) at 39 points in 67 games (+3).


Kempny assisted Garnet Hathaway tie the game at 3-3 in the second period of the 6-5 overtime loss on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: With 18 points in 56 games (+15) there should not be much fantasy interest in this defenseman.

Fantasy Impact: This of minimal fantasy interest, but the Caps can recall Sieganthaler at any time for maximum flexibility.

Fantasy Impact: The Caps defense definitely needs help. But don't expect much for fantasy, as Dillon has only 14 points (1 goal, 13 assists) in 59 games.
