I really thought this dude would be gone by now.
The Caps have gone from playing the single worst team in the league, Buffalo, to one of the best, the Islanders, back to one of the worst, the Toronto Maple Leafs. Though they’ve got a better record than the Caps, that poor hockey club just cannot get its act together. Tonight at 7 PM on CSN and NHL Network, the Caps will play visitor to the Leafs.
This is one of those “don’t play down to a lesser opponent” situations. This is also one of those situations where you guys tell me “we are what our record says we are” and I roll my eyes.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|Toronto Maple Leafs||11-8-3||47.8%||100.4||18.5%||84.2%|
I don’t expect many changes, so here’s how the Caps got started last night, but with Peters in the cage.
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Wilson
Johansson – Kuznetsov – Brouwer
Chimera – Fehr – Ward
Laich– Burakovsky – Beagle
Orpik – Carlson
Alzner – Niskanen
Schmidt – Hillen
Hope you had a safe opening day.
