The Washington Capitals’ fourth-line has arguably, been its most hard-working this season, lauded throughout the season for their grit and ability to do all the “little things” right. During the Caps’ April 24 contest against the New York Islanders, the line featured prominently on the scoreboard early in the game, with right wing Garnet Hathaway beginning the scoring in the first period of play.

Entering the game with four goals in 46 games played, Hathaway scored his fifth marker of the 2020-21 season at the 2:33 mark of the first frame, putting the visitors ahead 1-0 on an assist from Nick Jensen.

Hathaway’s fifth goal of the season exemplified the fourth-line’s (which also consists of Nic Dowd and Carl Hagelin) efforts this season, as he reached the 15-point mark in 18 fewer games than the 2019-20 season.

Dowd would notch his own goal later in the game, marking a new career-high in the process. Through two periods, two-thirds of the Caps’ fourth-line had found themselves on the scoresheet with a goal apiece.

    4th line has been the Caps best line from start to finish this season. No ifs, ands or buts.
