After missing Tuesday’s game against the Sharks, captain Alex Ovechkin will return to the lineup as the Caps take on the defending Stanley Cup Champions. Here’s to hoping the good guys come with a better effort than they did om Tuesday, as they played freaking horribly.
Is everyone ready for some Thursday night hockey action? If you’re a student of Rebecca Black’s poetry, you know that Thursday comes before Friday. If you like mediocre emo-type music, you may identify Thursday as when we seek Understanding in a Car Crash. Perhaps, like Robert Smith, you prefer to watch the walls instead of hockey on this particular day of the week. But if not, you can watch the game at 7 PM on CSN.

I’m going to pass on my chance to put Rebecca Black into this pregame. Not because I’m better than that, but because I don’t want to be banned from this duty.
I like The Cure, but I don’t love them. However, I’ll always remember where I was when I first heard this gem
Oooookay. Now that we’re all under our desks in the fetal position, let’s get ready for some hockey.

Maybe you don’t like baseball. That’s okay, we all have flaws. But if you do enjoy America’s Game, or appreciate people who are the best at their craft, the Dodgers and Mets play in an elimination game on TBS at 8 PM. The pitching match up is going to be fantastic as Zach Grienke toes the rubber for the Dodgers and Jacob deGrom will be on the hill for the Mets.
