Neuvirth, Caps Shutout Habs
Standard Spin: The Caps were outshot 31-16 Wednesday, but they still managed to down the Habs 3-0, with Michal Neuvirth earning his 2nd shutout of the season.
New Washington coach Dale Hunter has his team playing a far more defensive style than we're accustomed to seeing from Ovechkin and company, and it's sad to say, but fantasy owners better get used to this. To illustrate just how bad it's gotten, the Caps are averaging a paltry 19.6 shots over their last 5 games. And the worst part is they're 4-1 during that span, so the new philosophy is starting to stick...
In case you're wondering, Ovechkin, Marcus Johansson, and Mathieu Perrault did the scoring. Check out the highlights... (Jan.19)
