Caps overcome Jackets in shootout to retain hold on top spot in Metro, Williams and Johansson reach benchmarks.

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / Monumental Sports Network

With a pair of Vezina Trophy candidates in goal on Thursday night at Verizon Center, goals didn't figure to be plentiful as the Capitals hosted the Columbus Blue Jackets. For 40 minutes, neither the Caps Braden Holtby nor the Blue Jackets' Sergei Bobrovsky showed any sign of being penetrable, and the contest continued into the third, a scoreless tie.

Caps Take 2-1 Shootout Win Over Jackets

Washington grabs the extra point in the shootout after Holtby and Bobrovsky hook up in a goaltender's duel for 65 minutes.

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / Monumental Sports Network

Thursday night's Metropolitan Division heavyweight bout between the Capitals and the Columbus Blue Jackets probably didn't live up to billing in terms of excitement and goals scored. That's partly because the game featured two of the best goalies in the NHL, partly because the Blue Jackets played a rugged game the night before against Toronto, and partly because the Caps were content to slow-play the Jackets, having faith that they'd be able to wear them down and find a way to prevail in the end.

Caps Overpower Flames, 4-2

Two clutch power-play goals and a 29-save night from Braden Holtby help the Caps to douse the red hot Flames.

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / Monumental Sports Network

Kevin Shattenkirk's first goal as a Capital wasn't pretty at all, and it didn't even look like Shattenkirk's goal at first glance. But it was a pretty big goal at that juncture of the Tuesday's contest against Calgary, and it showed some killer instinct on the part of the Capitals as well.
