That win over Pittsburgh was fun, but it was the only victory the Caps have had in more than two weeks. Tonight won’t be easy either, as the Kings come to town with a Cup on their back and a chip on their shoulder– they’re not happy about their record so far.
In the Caps’ favor, however, are some bold new lines courtesy of Barry Trotz. This could be wild. We shall see at 7 PM on CSN.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|Los Angeles Kings||21-16-12||54.5%||99.9||19.5%||77.8%|
Turn and face the strange. Look out, you rock’n’rollers. From the Caps official twitter account, which may or may not be right about this:
Johansson – Backstrom – Ovechkin
Laich – Fehr– Ward
Burakovsky – Kuznetsov – Brouwer
Volpatti – Beagle – Wilson
Orpik – Carlson
Alzner – Niskanen
Hillen – Green
(Is Ovi really on the right wing? Doubt it; we’ll see at warm-ups.)
The Horn Guy shared this earlier. It’s a riot.
I can’t get over how good Parks and Recreation is. Every episode doubles me over with laughter and tugs at my heartstrings, which, I’m surprised to learn, are connected to a functioning human heart and not a cold, mechanized, four-chambered hate engine.
Plus: Agent Carter. That show is diesel too. I’m gonna time-shift the heck out of both shows after the game.
My friend Doug and I played a bunch of shows together back in the day. He’s since moved to Boston (boo), where his band The Field Effect is tearing it up. They’re playing at the Sidebar in Baltimore tomorrow night. Come on out. We’ll have a beer, see some music, and talk about how the Caps beat the Kings 5-2 on Tuesday.
