Now begins a tough weekend for the Washington Capitals. There’s the two early games against two very high-achieving teams, the Nashville Predators today and the New York Rangers tomorrow. There’s also the untidy narratives surrounding today’s game, specifically Barry Trotz playing his old team, who got better when he left, and the “return” of Filip Forsberg to Verizon Center, where he never really played as a Capital, but you know what I mean.
Puck drop at 12:30 PM on CSN. Pants optional.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
No morning practice for an early game, but here’s how we looked the other night. Check out Tom Wilson, not on the top line, not on the bottom line.
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Johansson
Glencross – Kuznetsov – Brouwer
Laich – Fehr – Wilson
Chimera – Latta – Ward
Orpik – Carlson
Alzner – Niskanen
Green – Gleason
Fritz can’t catch anything.
“Runaway Turtle; Dear Rocket Cat” 12:00 PM on NBC, 30 min
Owl finds a lost baby turtle, so the gang set out in their submarine to return him to his mother; Poppy suggests they take a rocket ship to the moon to meet the star of Mo’s favorite TV show, “Rocket Cat.”
So don’t miss that.
