Alright let's ride with what we've got all hands on deck Washington Capitals fans. Here are your top 3 players who need to make an impact tonight. If they do so, they end this trip with a successful two pionts including six straight to vault themselves into playoff contention.

#3 Charlie Lindgren

Charlie Lindgren has been simply unstoppable this month and over his last five starts has posted a record of 4-1-0 with a 1.20 goals against average and a .959 save percentage. He gets the start in goal tonight once again.

Among goaltenders with 35 or more games played this season, Lindgren ranks eigthth in save percentage at .914 and 11th in goals against average. He recorded his fourth shutout of the season on March 7 with a 39 save performance at Pittsburgh and it marked the most he made in a shutout effort and the third highest single game total of his career.

Lindgren has four shutouts on the year which is tied for the fifth most in the NHL. His shutout over the Pens marked his 14th win of the season which passed last year for a new single season career high. Glad he's still here and so are the glass half full fans.
