Brouwer and the rest of the Caps were held scoreless in Ottawa without the NHL's top scorer in the lineup on Tuesday.

Troy Brouwer has only nine points this season after a breakout 2013 campaign.

Brouwer had 19 goals and 33 points during the truncated 2012-13 season and averaged a career high 18:32 minutes of action in 47 games. But it has been a completely different story this season as he has only five goals although four have come on the power play. He has had a bunch of centers this season after relying on Mike Ribeiro last season and that could be hurting his production.

Troy Brouwer netted a goal for the Capitals in their 4-3 shootout loss to the Coyotes on Saturday night.

When are opponents of the Capitals going to learn? Sure, the Coyotes eked out the win, but they gave the league's deadliest power play seven chances to score -- and it did twice. Brouwer, for his fifth of the year, had one, and John Carlson had the other power-play marker. Twenty of the team's 56 goals have come with the man advantage. Joel Ward also scored for the Caps, at even strength, in the second period.

Troy Brouwer scored his first goal of the 2013-14 campaign on Monday.

Brouwer got off to a cold start after taking a big step forward in the shortened 2013 campaign. He should be able to surpass his career-high of 40 points this season.

Troy Brouwer is stationed on the Capitals' second line with Brooks Laich and Mikhail Grabovski for the season opener against Chicago Tuesday night.

Brouwer notched 33 points in 47 games last season and should be a good bet to beat his career high of 40 points in the coming year given those solid stats and his new gifted linemates.

Troy Brouwer scored in the Capitals' preseason win against the Jets on Saturday night.

The result, a 4-3 victory via the shootout, hardly matters at this stage. Brouwer scored on a nice passing sequence with Marcus Johansson and Nicklas Backstrom on the power play. Brouwer had a very good season, with 19 goals and 33 points in 47 games, as he played very well with added ice time. It would be fair to peg him for 25 goals and 45-50 points this season. Jack Hillen and Stanislav Galiev notched the other goals for the Caps in regulation. Mike Green had the shootout winner.

Troy Brouwer scored for the Capitals in their 4-3 loss against the Rangers in Game 4 of their first-round series Wednesday night.

The Capitals had trouble generating any consistent offense through the first half of the game, but found themselves tied 2-2 by the end of the second thanks to a slick backhander from Brouwer, who now has 15 points in 61 playoff games. Mathieu Perreault had the team's first goal, taking advantage of Joel Ward's hard move to the net and banking in the rebound. Karl Alzner had the other goal for Washington. Ward ended up with two helpers. Alex Ovechkin was limited to one shot on goal and a minus-one rating. He also had two penalty minutes.
