I officially renounce my every-other-game theory about Alex Ovechkin. For a few weeks, Ovi would do something ridiculous in a game and then take the next night off. Except now he’s doing it every single game. Not to be greedy but the Caps are gonna need even more of Ovi’s magic for Saturday’s matinee match-up against the New York Islanders.
Saturday’s is the first of three games within the Metropolitan division, in which the Caps currently find themselves in second place. It’s gonna be a big week.
The game is on CSN. Puck drops a little after 12:30.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|New York Islanders||39-19-1||54.4%||99.5||19.1%||74.7%|
Assuming no changes as long as everyone is healthy.
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Burakovsky
Johansson– Kuznetsov – Brouwer
Laich – Fehr – Ward
Beagle – Latta – Wilson
Orpik – Carlson
Alzner – Niskanen
Morgan Rielly today said positive approach, strong work ethic during tough time was key. "You're not here to be a girl about it."

Once again, your recap experience will be serviced by Emily Wright. I will be attending my first game at Verizon Center since 2012.
I’ll be sitting up in 411 with my signed Matt Bradley jersey. Come say hi.
See you there!
