Anthony Mantha Pushed Himself To Get Back In The Lineup

from Samantha Pell of the Washington Post,

Anthony Mantha’s slow but steady crawl back to full health turned into a full sprint over the past month. The 27-year-old forward said he pushed his body to the max as he finished off a lengthy rehab process after shoulder surgery in early November.

Please answer some questions in this short survey about professional soccer and the 2022 Men's FIFA World Cup.
So far, it has been worth it. The Capitals are 4-0-1 since Mantha reentered Washington’s lineup on March 3. He has one goal and one assist in his first five games since returning from injury.

“The last little sprint to here from all-star break [the first week in February] was pretty intense for me workout-wise,” Mantha said, “And it was just new steps every other week or every week almost. From the mental side of it, it was awesome.”

Washington’s next game is Tuesday against the New York Islanders.

Mantha said his return was certainly accelerated “maybe a game or two” after key injuries to Washington’s forward corps, but he said he wasn’t rushed back. He said he would have slowed down if he had felt sore or off after any practice leading up to his return, but no setbacks occurred.

Alex Ovechkin And Nicklas Backstrom Will Reach 1000 Games Played Tonight

ARLINGTON, Va. – Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin and alternate captain Nicklas Backstrom are scheduled to play in their 1,000th career game together tonight when the Capitals play the Calgary Flames at Scotiabank Saddledome. The Capitals’ franchise leaders in goals and assists played their first game together on Oct. 5, 2007 against the Atlanta Thrashers, with each player recording an assist in the game.

 Ovechkin and Backstrom – who became the first and second players, respectively, to play 1,000 games with the Capitals – will become the ninth set of teammates in NHL history to accomplish this feat. Los Angeles’ Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown are the only other active set of teammates to accomplish this feat (1,149 games). The Capitals will become the seventh franchise to have two teammates accomplish this feat with one team.
