Caps Complete Southern Division Title Run With 2 Games Left—Defeating Winnipeg 5-3

Who would have thought it could happen when the Caps were 2-8. Putting together a 10-1 April streak did the job for Washington. As Alex Ovechkin scored his 13th goal in April the Caps finished off the Jets. The guys bought into Adam Oates’ system and it totally paid off.

“I remember 20 games ago looking at the schedule,” said Mathieu Perreault, one of five Capitals to score a goal Tuesday. “Like, ‘Man, we’re probably going to have to go 16-4 to get in’ — and basically did it. It almost looked impossible if you look back 20 games, but this team has got so much character, and they found a way to do it.”

“We had a lousy start,” Oates said. “And I don’t think many of us thought we would come this far. But we obviously put some really good hockey together, and the guys have grown and it’s obviously a good feeling right now.”
