Sleep tight, kids, with visions of sugarplums and evil bun-bun Ovi dancing in your heads.
Wednesday night is rivalry night, according to NBC Sports. This means that two random teams without any meaningful relationship play on a Wednesday and the game is on NBCSN and given the label “rivalry night” without any deliberate thought.
Tonight’s game is not on NBCSN, thank goodness, but it wouldn’t be the most random pair of teams to meet on a rivalry night. The Caps meet the Senators, which means we get to watch one of the best players in the league, Erik Karlsson, and a bunch of other dudes play hockey in their Senators jerseys.
Tonight’s game is on the trust CSN Plus. Puck drops at 7 PM.

A sign of a great coach is alienating one of his best players. Keep on tortsing, Torts.
