As of this year, the Capitals have made 219 goals, 84 points and a .627 points percentage.  They have an 80.33% penalty kill percentage, and an outstanding 90.4% save percentage. The opponents need to watch out for Ilya Samsonov across the ice as he has a total of 1,910 saves out of 2,112 attempted shots, bringing him to a .904 save percentage and a record of 48-19-7. 


Looking at the Carolina Hurricanes, they were able to attain a 7-2 win against St. Louis Blues recently, brought about by their good offensive performance.
