Knuble Resurging at the Right Time

From Tarik El-Bashir at the Washington Post:

The vet­eran appeared out of sync some nights and a step too slow on others.

In the past three weeks, however, the 38-year-old has been the Capitals’ most productive player and, once again, ranks among the game’s premier power forwards. After scoring a total of three goals in October and November, Knuble has netted nine goals in 12 games to bring his season total to 24 and propel Washington closer to a second consecutive Eastern Conference regular season title.

“Got to get the old bones going,” Coach Bruce Boudreau cracked when asked about Knuble’s slow start. “It takes a little time. He’ll be the first one to tell you [that] he’s a better second half player. Some people are, and there’s no explanation for it.”
