John Carlson scored for the Capitals in their 3-1 win over the Red Wings on Saturday night.
If the All-Star lineup didn’t need a representative from all 30 teams (and had five Blackhawks not made it, limiting the pool), Carlson could’ve easily found himself on the team. He’s easily been the Capitals’ best defensemen. He has five goals and 31 points this season. Troy Brouwer and Joel Ward got the other goals. Jan 10 - 9:55 PM
