Valentine’s Day didn’t work out well for the Caps, but they’re gonna have to get over it quickly. Reminds me of the Replacements’ song, “Valentine.”
Well if tonight belongs to you, tomorrow’s mine
I think Paul Westerberg meant something different by that, but last night certainly belonged to the Kings. Tonight at 8 PM on CSN, the Caps get a chance to own the day against the Ducks of Anaheim.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
I’m gonna write about this more in the Sunday snapshot (which will be released– confusingly– on Monday), but Barry Trotz’s lines had nothing to do with the Caps losing last night. Nothing.
The Caps won’t look like the same tonight, but here’s last night’s lineup anyway.
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Johansson
Chimera – Kuznetsov – Brouwer
Laich – Fehr – Ward
Volpatti – Beagle – Wilson
Orpik – Carlson
Alzner – Niskanen
Oleksy – Green
Hillen and Peters will be in tonight, so expect changes.
Dead at the too-young age of 35, Steve Montador will be subject of conversation in coming days. His death is not considered a criminal matter right now. The guy’s in every other video on hockey-fights.com but I didn’t embed one of those above. For now, I want to remember him as a player and as a person.
Trotz said every guy would play on dad's trip. @LeRinkRat: per your article, Coach Trotz confirm "Salt" Peters in goal @ Anahiem tonight?

The Walking Dead (9:00 PM on AMC)
I think last week’s episode was the best direction the show has had since Frank Darabont was fired at the beginning of the second season. We’re gonna have to catch it on DVR.
Stay warm, Caps fans.
