Welcome back, fans of actual hockey games. The grotesque obscenity of All-Star weekend is now behind us, so we can focus on — well, I sorta forget.
Jog my memory. The team we follow is the Capitals, yeah?. The other guys are the Blue Jackets, and I can’t remember if they’re good or not. Let’s say yes since the Oilers were awful and somehow won anyway.

What are we doing here, that is the question. And we are blessed in this, that we happen to know the answer. Yes, in this immense confusion one thing alone is clear. We are waiting for Godot to come—
That means no changes to the lines. Holtby in net. According to Prewitt:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Burakovsky
Johansson – Kuznetsov – Brouwer
Laich– Fehr– Ward
Chimera – Beagle – Wilson
Orpik – Carlson
Alzner – Niskanen
Hillen – Green
