After suffering a broken shoulder blade, Nate Schmidt finally made his return to game action this weekend helping lead Hershey to five-straight wins.
The Capitals and Blue Jackets combined for 80 minutes in penalties, but the Caps emerged with the win.
Vegas sees improvement in the Caps as they keep improving their odds for the team to win the Stanley Cup and Alex Ovechkin to win the Hart Trophy.
