The Capitals’ regulation loss to the Florida Panthers was their first since November 19. It was also probably their worst game of the season, or so I was told. I’ve heard that no shame is worse than shame from one’s father, so the Caps must redeem themselves tonight with a win over the Tampa Bay Lightning, or else seppuku is the only option.
Puck drops at 7 PM. Until then, have a lovely December Saturday afternoon. Maybe go tanning by the pool or play frisbee.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|Tampa Bay Lightning||14-12-3||51.6%||101.7||17.0%||77.5%|
Some more changes in the bottom six, per Mike Vogel.
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Oshie
Johansson – Kuznetsov – Williams
Chimera – Beagle – Galiev
Burakovsky – Laich – Wilson
Schmidt – Carlson
Alzner – Niskanen
Orlov – Chorney
It won’t be this majestic.
