Capitals

Jason Chimera gets to the bottom of Joel Ward's taste in music on this week's 'Chimmer and Wardo.'
The Capitals had not won at home since Nov. 11. They showed some resilience to take three of four points from the Islanders.
With a wide open net at the other end of the ice, Braden Holtby took a shot at Capitals history.
