This is where the Isles play. That’s not where the Caps will play today and it’s not the place where the team they’re playing today plays, but it’s the place where the team they’re playing next week will play and how much they’ll play there depends on how the Caps play against the team they’re playing today. Please don’t make this more complicated than it needs to be dammit, this is the final #rego pregamer of the season. Don’t make a scene.
The New York Islanders. They’re not the team the Caps will play; they’re just the team the Caps will be thinking about as they play today. The Penguins’ loss last night (p.s. ha) means the Caps and Isles will certainly meet next week in the first round of the playoffs. The only question is how many games the Caps will have to play at Nassau. If the Capitals win today, it’ll be less. Errr… fewer. Dammit, final pregame of the season and I can’t remember which word to use.
Anyway, Caps and Rangers at home at noon thirty on CSN. Right in the middle of your beautiful Saturday when you’d otherwise be gardening.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|New York Rangers||52-22-7||50.6%||101.7||16.7%||84.6%|
It’s the final lineup (awful keyboard riff goes here) as told by Alex Prewitt.
Ovechkin — Kuznetsov — Ward
Johansson — Backstrom — Brouwer
Glencross — Laich— Chimera
Burakovsky — Latta — Galiev
Orpik – Carlson
Alzner – Niskanen
Green – Gleason
I don’t know what this longrat was thinking.
Plus, here’s your boy Alex to explain the playoff impact.
The full scenarios:
Caps W: Clinch home ice
Caps L in OT/SO: Need any Isles loss, or Isles SO win.
Caps lose in reg: Need any Isles loss.
