By all accounts, 2013 was a great year for Alex Ovechkin. He netted 62 goals for the Capitals in the calendar year, more than any player in the NHL.

The Capitals can score goals. We all know that.
Rookie goaltender Philipp Grubauer will start for the ninth time in 12 games and Brooks Laich will play for just the second time in 16 games when the Capitals face the Carolina Hurricanes tonight
