Capitals' John Carlson: Steps in front of five shots
Carlson missed the scoresheet but had a season-high five blocked shots in Friday's 4-2 win over the Devils.

Carlson tallied the primary assist on Alex Ovechkin's 300th career power-play goal, as the defenseman extended his point streak to four games (one goal, three assists). The 33-year-old is one of the only Capitals producing offensively at the moment, but with some positive regression from his teammates likely forthcoming, Carlson should continue to deliver solid returns for fantasy managers, so keep him rolling....
