Jason Chimera, Tom Wilson, Marcus Johansson and Justin Williams scored for the Capitals, who picked up their fifth consecutive victory by defeating the Maple Leafs, 4-2, on Saturday night.
Chimera scored his third power-play goal of the season after having just 10 in his first 15 years, and the Capitals cruised to an easy, 4-0 victory on Friday afternoon over the visiting Lightning.
Schmidt spent parts of the last two seasons with the Capitals and in the minor leagues, and after signing a two-year contract in July, he recognized that he needed to adjust if he hoped to stick in the NHL.
Orlov scored a goal in his third consecutive game and Braden Holtby finished with 23 saves as the Capitals rallied back to defeat the visiting Jets, 5-3, on Wednesday night.
The Capitals’ goaltender reached a number of career and team milestones last season, and a quarter of the way through this one, Holtby had one of his best performances of the year in a 1-0 victory over the Oilers.
