Last night at Verizon Center:

NOTEWORTHY

Of the four players the Capitals and Canadiens swapped March 13, 2001, only Dainius Zubrus is still with the team that acquired him. Richard Zednik has been re-acquired by Washington and Trevor Linden and Jan Bulis both are in Vancouver.

QUOTABLE

“It’s a fun tournament where you learn a lot more about the guys you draft.”

— Capitals general manager George McPhee on the World Junior Hockey Championship

OVECHKIN WATCH

Alex Ovechkin’s goal-less streak has reached five games, the longest this season. He went six games without a goal twice last season. Ovechkin still added to his point total, though, finishing with three assists to bring his season points total to 54.
