John Carlson picked up a pair of assists Saturday.
The defenseman is having a comeback season with 20 points in 27 games after a down season for him in 2016-17 when he had 37 points in 72 games. He should get 55-60 points this season with the Capitals if he can remain healthy and that should be good enough to be a top-five scoring defenseman in the NHL. Dec 3 - 9:19 AM
