Hendricks had six fighting majors through the Caps' first 27 games, more than the rest of his teammates combined. He fought twice Saturday at the Boston Bruins in a game that underscored how much this team needs Hendricks to answer the bell when opponents take liberties.
There's a saving grace in the Caps' 5-2-1 record against opponents out of the playoff picture because without those points they would be in an even deeper hole. But sitting 15th in the East isn't a spot they want to be in with two games coming up Thursday and Saturday against the defending conference-champion New Jersey Devils.
Going into Tuesday night's game, the Washington Capitals captain had two goals and none at even strength, while the Toronto Maple Leafs forward had yet to score a goal in his first nine games of the season.
Errors by the Washington Capitals in Tuesday night's 3-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs at Verizon Center illustrated what has gone wrong during a disastrous start to the season.

"It was nice to get out there with some shifts with some guys that we might be playing with."
"Obviously we're frustrated, and yeah, we're a little concerned," said right wing Joey Crabb, who scored the Caps' lone goal. "But nothing like hitting the panic button where we don't think we can come out of it."
