The Caps, with the exception of Alex Ovechkin, are on a well-deserved break. At the midpoint of the season, the Caps have their best record ever (30-15-3), which puts them in second place in the Eastern Conference behind the Boston Bruins.
So, where is Ovi right now? In Montreal, preparing to represent the Caps in the All-Star game on Sunday. This is Ovi's third appearance in the All-Stars. He will also be defending his title in the Breakaway Challenge.
The Caps will be back in action on the road against Boston on Tuesday, January 27. The Caps defeated Boston 2-1 at Verizon Center on January 17 in what proved to be a tight defensive match-up, and their next meeting should be similar.
