Carlson confident ahead of Caps' matchup vs. Rangers

The Washington Capitals' leading scorer has 14 points in eight games. Most people would assume that would be Alex Ovechkin.

However, the leading point producer in Washington is defenseman John Carlson. Heading into Friday's home clash with the New York Rangers, Carlson has five multi-point games en route to compiling three goals and 11 assists in eight games.

"I'm just getting lucky," Carlson told NHL.com. "I think guys are making some good plays to me, and the guys I'm passing to are scoring right now. Especially as a (defenseman), it's pretty streaky. You just take them when you can."
