Today's Top Story

Daniel Sprong scored the Capitals lone goal upon his return to the lineup last night against the San Jose Sharks, marking his seventh goal of the season, tied for the sixth-most on the Capitals. Since joining Washington last season, Sprong's 20 goals are the sixth-most on Washington, two shy of Evgeny Kuznetsov. Additionally, Sprong's 1.39 goals per 60 minutes of five-on-five play over the last two seasons leads the Caps and ranks fourth in the NHL among players with at least 70 games played. All 20 of Sprong's goals have come at even strength in his Capitals career, and he's one of just three players in the NHL with at least 20 even strength goals and no power play goals (Nashville's Luke Kunin, New York Rangers Alexis Lafrenière).
