From Caps Instagram, which I want to call Capstagram, but I won’t.
The Capitals’ last game against the Tampa Bay Lightning was probably the best of the season, an encouraging 5-3 win over a good opponent on the road. Now the Caps are home, the winning streak is dead, and we look to claim another pelt from what might be the best team in the league.
Unless you’ve got tickets, you’ll be tuning in with me at 7 PM on CSN.

Jason Chimera bows out, making way for Andre Burakovsky’s return. From Prewitt:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Wilson
Johansson – Kuznetsov – Brouwer
Laich– Fehr – Ward
Latta – Burakovsky – Beagle
Orpik – Carlson
Alzner – Niskanen
Schmidt – Green

Miracle On 34th Street (7:00 PM on AMC). One of the most infuriating movies of all time, surpassing even Pearl Harbor. A department-store Santa Claus runs afoul of the store’s nasty in-house psychiatrist and is forced to go on trial to prove he’s the real Kris Kringle. For some reason this dreck was a Best Picture nominee in ’47, and the script won an Oscar, which goes to show that all awards are bullpucky. Bah humbug. Go Caps.
