Carlson recorded the primary assist on Dylan Strome's overtime winning goal on Tuesday over the Detroit Red Wings which marked his team leading 10th game winning assist of the season. He has assisted on all four Caps overtime goals this season, two of which were primary.

The veteran defenseman has registered 16 of his 45 points this season in the final 10 minutes of regulation and overtime, which is tied with Strome for the highest total on the team. So Carly is back to being Clutch Carly once again.

Now tonight is no easy opponent. The Caps lost to the Leafs on home ice last Wednesday by a final of 7-3 but now opponents are starting to fear the Capitals and not the other way around.
