Treat Me Like A Saturday Night - On Saturday night in Columbus, Braden Holtby quieted the cannons. The Caps goalie stopped all 28 shots he faced in a 4-0 shutout win over the Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena, where a cannon erupts loudly after every goal from the home team. Holtby also quieted the Saturday night home crowd in Columbus, giving the locals nothing to cheer about and notching his 11th win of the season.

POSTGAME NOTEBOOK: Caps 4, Coyotes 2

Caps get right vs. Coyotes, Burakovsky makes amends, Vrana keeps rolling, Niskanen accepts birthday "gift," more

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

Right Side Of A Good Thing - Missing top six right wings T.J. Oshie and Tom Wilson at the same time for the first time this season and owning a two-game losing streak, the Caps went into Thursday's game against the Coyotes in Arizona looking to get right. They did so with a 4-2, come-from-behind win, their first regulation triumph here since Jan. 16, 2006.

Caps Clip Coyotes Late, 4-2

Andre Burakovsky finds redemption from a costly turnover early, scoring the game-winner late as the Caps halt a two-game slide in Arizona

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

For Caps winger Andre Burakovsky, Thursday night's game against the Arizona Coyotes offered great expectations. He'd be playing the right side of Washington's top line, with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom. Once the game got started, though, it was a bit of Dickens in reverse for Burakovsky - it was the worst of times, and it was the best of times.

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

Missed It By That Much - The Caps were 85 seconds away from getting out of Vegas with a point on Tuesday night until an old friend snatched it away. Golden Knights defenseman Nate Schmidt scored on the power play at 18:35 of the third to break a 3-3 tie, and he added an empty-netter just over a minute later to seal the deal in a 5-3 Washington loss.
