Today's Top Story

Dmitrij Jaskin and Travis Boyd each scored their first goal as a Capital in Washington's 4-0 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets, which extended the Capitals lead in the Metropolitan Division by three points. That marked the 10th time since 1995 the Capitals have had two players score their first goal as Capitals in the same game and the first time since Evgeny Kuznetsov and Dustin Penner did so on March 25, 2014 against the Los Angeles Kings.

Boyd's goal marked his first career NHL goal. Boyd also added an assist on Jaskin's goal, marking his second career multi-point game (Nov. 5 at Edmonton, two assists). Among Capitals with at least 13 games played this season, Boyd leads the team in points per 60 minutes of five-on-five play (4.00), primary assists (2.50) and assists (3.50). Additionally, Boyd's 2.50 primary assists per 60 minutes at five-on-five rank first in the NHL among players with at least 13 games played. Of Boyd's seven assists, five have been primary helpers, tied for the eighth most on the Capitals.
