Last year’s surprise superstars, the Colorado Avalanche, are now fifth in the Central Division. I expect the Dallas Stars to pass them this month, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the Minnesota Wild turn things around, so the Avs might be in the division basement by season’s end. Bummer.
That said, they’re on a 3-game winning streak right now and have a hot goalie. The Capitals have the opportunity to run the Avs down tonight at Verizon Center. This upcoming weekend on the road is looking tough, so it’d be good to get out ahead tonight.
Puck drops at 7 PM on CSN-DC.

Coach Roy: Last year, we had all the bounces, and this year is totally different.

From War on Ice, from the beginning of last season to now, using adjusted save percentage in 20-game moving averages. No commentary from me.
In his entire life, do you think Donald Trump has ever said, “Well, that’s a complicated matter. There’s a lot of smart people on both sides of this issue”?
