John Carlson Has 2nd Straight 3 Point Night

Standard Spin: It's been a disappointing start many of the Caps' big names this season this season, but one lesser known guy that's keeping his owners happy is defenseman John Carlson.  Carlson scored a goal and contributed a couple of helpers Wednesday in a 5-3 win over the Sens, his 2nd straight 3-point night, and propelled himself into a tie for 5th overall in scoring by defensmen.  He's been on fire his last 10 games - 12 points - and he's got the talent to keep it going.  If your leammates have been sleeping on this guy, snap him off the wire before they wake up - Carlson is still available in a quarter of leagues.  (Dec.8)
