In years gone past, it's been pretty clear which defender on the Caps' roster drew the ire of the fans. He might have once put together a +50 season (as if it really means anything), but Jeff Schultz was generally disliked by the fanbase. With Schultz have been bought out this past summer, there had to be somebody step in a replace him. It has become clear the John Erskine has stepped in to fill the void, and he might surpass the mark.
The Capitals completed yet another third-period comeback en route to a 4-3 shootout victory over the Detroit Red Wings. The Capitals entered the third period trailing 3-1, but goals from Ovechkin and Latta were enough to force overtime and, eventually, a shootout. The win keeps Washington within a point of Pittsburgh, who beat Nashville earlier in the night. On to the reCap.
