Today's Top Story

The Capitals face the Ottawa Senators tonight at Capital One Arena for the second time this season. Washington won the first matchup, 7-5, on Oct. 25, 2021, at Canadian Tire Centre behind Alex Ovechkin's two goals. Ovechkin has 53 points (33g, 20a) in 49 career games against the Senators, 13 points (10g, 3a) in his last 11 games and is coming into tonight's game with four-straight multi-point efforts (6g, 2a) in his last four games versus Ottawa. No active player in the NHL has more goals against the Senators than Ovechkin.

Caps forward Carl Hagelin is expected to play in his 700th career game tonight against the Senators. It will mark his 174th career game with the Capitals after playing 266 with the New York Rangers, 195 with the Pittsburgh Penguins, 43 with the Anaheim Ducks and 22 with the Los Angeles Kings. Hagelin leads Capitals forwards this season with 71:58 of penalty kill time. At 5-on-5 this season, Hagelin has only started 29.8% of his shifts in the offensive zone, the second-lowest percentage on the Capitals (Nic Dowd: 26.2%). Despite starting most of his shifts outside the offensive zone, the Capitals have a positive shot attempt percentage at five-on-five with Hagelin on the ice (442 shot attempts for, 408 against, 52.0%), and have outscored opponents 14-12.
