  Capitals 3, Panthers 1

33 – Most of the fans had barely gotten to their seats at the Verizon Center for the start of the game when Washington grabbed a 1-0 lead. Racing down the middle of the ice, Eric Fehr's shot  handcuffed Tomas Vokoun for his sixth of the season just 33 seconds into the contest.

17 – Taking a pass from Richard Zednik, Keith Ballard blasted the puck off of Jose Theodore’s right shoulder and into the top of the net for his fifth of the season 8:35 into the first, tying the score at one. It was his first goal in 17 games. His last goal came on December 26, 2008 against Tampa Bay.

12 – Picking up the first assist on Ballard’s goal, Zednik recorded his 20th point of the season. Zednik became the 12th Panther to have at least 20 points this season. That assist tied the Panthers for most players on a team with 20 or more points with the Detroit Red Wings.

6 – It wasn’t a good night for Stephen Weiss in terms of the sin bin. The Panthers center picked up six penalty minutes against the Capitals on a four-minute high sticking penalty 6:11 into the first period and a holding penalty with 50 seconds left in the second period. Going into the game, Weiss had a total of 10 penalty minutes on the season, picking up a minor penalty in five different games.

1:05 – You can’t say that the Panthers didn’t have their chances in the game. They had a golden opportunity to tie the score at two as they had a 5-on-3 advantage for 1:05 late in the third period as Sergei Fedorov was in the box for a holding 14:04 into the third and Shaone Morisonn was called for checking from behind. With Morrisonn still in the box to end the game, the Panthers had a two-man advantage thanks to pulling the goalie, but it wasn’t enough to get another goal.

5 – What is there to say about Capitals defenseman Mike Green. He’s like an extra forward when he steps out on the ice. Green scored twice against the Panthers, the game winner on a power play 43 seconds into the third and then the empty netter to seal it with 1:13 left in the game. Green has recorded at least one goal in the past six games and has five more goals than the next closest defenseman in the league, Nashville’s Shea Weber despite missing 13 games due to an injury.

12 – The Panthers did have a pretty good night containing one of the game’s most dynamic players, Alex Ovechkin. The Russian forward who leads the league in goals with 37 registered an assist on Green’s game-winner but was denied on his 12 shots by Vokoun. The next closest in terms of shots was Alexander Semin’s five. The Panthers had a total of 21 shots in the game with Nick Boynton’s four leading the way.

0 – Florida had three power play opportunities in the game but came up empty on all three chances. Washington’s pressure penalty kill unit only allowed five shots on the 9:56 of power play time for the Panthers. It didn’t help the Panthers that they were only able to win 33% of their power play draws (3 of 9).
