More Milestones

-Congratulations to Alex Ovechkin for scoring his 50th goal, his fourth 50 goal season out of five.  He also recorded his 59th assist, with is now tied for 8th All-Time in Capitals history.  His 59th assist is the most ever by a Capitals winger.  Ovie also reclaimed the lead in the league goal scoring and points races.

-Congratulations to Nicklas Backstrom for recording his first ever 100 point season.  This is the first season in Caps history that two players have recorded 100 points in the same season.  Backis is on the verge of becoming the second Capital to record 70 assists, he sits third in Caps history with 68 and is tied for second in the league.

-Congratulations to Jose Theodore for recording his 30th win of the season.  This is his fourth 30-win season and second as a Capital.

-Congratulations to the whole team for becoming the first non-Original Six team to record 120 points in a season.

-It's safe to say we won't be playing the Boston Bruins in the first round.  It looks like Montreal, Philadelphia, or New York.
