 Daily Washington Capitals news and notes. The Caps play host to the Ducks, checking in on prospect Alex Alexeyev and more.

Winning seven of their last eight games, the Washington Capitals haven’t suffered a regulation loss in an entire month, thus steamrolling the NHL and looking to continue a 13-game point streak. After narrowly escaping the Flyers with a shootout win, Washington is poised to face Montreal, not too far behind them in scoring prowess. The Canadiens are scoring an average of 3.44 goals per game so far this season, compared to the Capitals notching 3.85 per outing. Montreal sits right behind Boston at second in the Atlantic Division, and the Canadiens even beat the Bruins as recently as November 5. They’re 4-5 on the road, eager to bolster their presence outside the Bell Centre with another hefty W in the American capital.

Most recently, Montreal placed Jesperi Kotkaniemi on injured reserve Nov. 1 due to a groin injury, missing six straight games since then. He practiced Nov. 13 and has not been cleared to play against the Capitals yet. Here is everything else you need to know in order to tune in to the much anticipated matchup. The Anaheim Ducks head to Washington D.C. on Monday for a match up with the Capitals, in a clash between the Eastern and Western Conference. In their last game, the Ducks easily defeated the St. Louis Blues by the score of 4-1. Against St. Louis, Anaheim received goals from Ryan Getzlaf and Derek Grant who recorded a hat trick, scoring 3 times in the game. Ducks goalie John Gibson also played well in net on the night as he made 37 saves on 38 Blues shots.

With the win, the Ducks are now 10-9-2 on the season and are sitting in 5th in the Pacific Division. The Ducks are led in points and goals by winger, Jakob Silfverberg who has 17 points on the season to go along with his 9 goals. Anaheim is led in assists by defenseman Hampus Lindholm who has tallied 9 so far on the season. Despite having a record of 7-9-0, Ducks goaltender John Gibson has played well as he has a goals against average of 2.83. Ducks backup goalie Ryan Miller has also been good in net on the season with a record of 3-0-2 and a goals against average of just 2.61. Anaheim enters Monday’s game with just 1 player listed on their injury report as Hampus Lindholm is on injured reserve.

The Washington Capitals welcome the Anaheim Ducks into town on Monday after winning their last game, beating the Boston Bruins by the score of 3-2 in a shootout. Travis Boyd and T.J. Oshie scored Washington’s goals in regulation and the Capitals beat the Bruins 2-1 in the shootout. Braden Holtby recorded the win in net for the Capitals he allowed 2 goals on 23 of the Bruins shots on the night.

With the win against the Bruins, the Capitals are now 15-3-4 on the season, good enough for 1st place in the Metropolitan Division. Washington is led in points by John Carlson who has recorded 32 points on the season. Carlson is also Washington’s leader in assists on the year as he has recorded 24 so far this season. Alex Ovechkin leads the Capitals in goals on the season with 14. Braden Holtby is currently 10-1-3 on the season with a goals against average of 2.97. Washington comes into Monday’s game with 2 players listed on their injury report as Carl Hagelin and Nic Dowd are listed as out.

The Ducks have scored 2.71 goals per game on the year while allowing 2.81 goals per game. The Capitals have scored 3.68 goals per game and allowed 3 goals per game. In their last 5, Anaheim is 1-4 while the Capitals are 3-2. Anaheim is more solid on the defensive side of the puck, but Washington has a strong offense that I believe can take over any time, especially against a team like the Ducks. With the stat lines in mind and the fact that the game is in Washington, I will be going with the Capitals in this one. Washington wins 3-2 on the under. The Capitals needed a goal from T.J. Oshie with less than a minute remaining to force overtime on Saturday where they would go on to defeat the Boston Bruins 3-2 in a shootout.

It looked like Jaroslav Halak would once again pull off a miraculous win as he turned aside 42 shots, but the Caps kept up the pressure late to tie the game and get back in the win column. Saturday’s win is now Washington’s 15th in the last 16 contests against the Bruins.

Here is how the Caps won. Boyd makes the most of his opportunity
On Friday, Travis Boyd was a Hershey Bear. With Nic Dowd and Carl Hagelin both injured but without enough money under the cap for Boyd, the Caps recalled Tyler Lewington on Friday and skated seven defensemen and only 11 forwards against the Montreal Canadiens. On Saturday, the team sent Lewington and Ilya Samsonov to Hershey and recalled Vitek Vanecek and Boyd. The extra cap space the team gained from Vanecek taking Samsonov’s spot allowed them to recall Boyd and skate four full forward lines. The impact of Boyd’s addition was felt in the first period when Boyd scored a deflection to beat Halak and get the Caps on the board. In seven games with the Caps this season, Boyd has one goal and four assists.

Caps get their power play setup on 6-on-5
For much of the night, the Caps just could not figure out Halak. They poured on the shots, but he was there each time and looked like he would be able to lead his team to the narrow victory. Late in regulation, the Caps pulled Braden Holtby for the extra attacker and the Caps gave Boston a power play look.

Washington had its top power play unit on the ice plus Tom Wilson. The goal looked like one right out of the power play’s playbook with Evgeny Kuznetsov behind the goal line feeding Oshie in the slot. Oshie is great at getting those quick shots away from in close and he finally beat Halak with 59 seconds remaining. Oshie was instrumental in setting up the goal as well as he blocked a clearing attempt from Zdeno Chara with his glove to keep the puck in the offensive zone just seconds before Kuznetsov set him up for the goal.

Backstrom and Vrana deliver in the shootout
Washington scored only twice on the shootout, but that would be all they needed. The normally automatic Oshie was stopped on his shootout attempt putting Washington behind early on.I n a score-or-go-home situation for Nicklas Backstrom, he managed to sneak a shot in between the glove and the pad of Halak to force extra rounds of the shootout. Then Jakub Vrana pulled off one of the nices shootout goals you will ever see.
