The best goal-scorer in the NHL returns to the Caps’ lineup tonight as the Islanders make the trip down from Brooklyn for a Metro battle. The Caps beat the Isles 4-1 when they met on January 7th.
The mission remains the same: pad the division lead. The Caps have 74 points, a 15 point lead in the division, and they are our guys. If things go badly tonight and you want to boo the team in red, we kindly ask that you get a grip. Thanks.
NBCSN has the coverage for the 7:30 game.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|

Chorney is still feeling a little yucky but he skated this morning. Ness has been recalled on an emergency basis and will go if Chorns can’t. MJ90 is still out. Per Katie Brown:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Oshie
Burakovsky – Kuznetsov – Williams
Chimera – Richards – Wilson
Laich – Sill – Latta
Alzner – Niskanen
Schmidt – Carlson
Orlov – Chorney
There are a lot of good songs about Brooklyn. What’s your favorite one? Here’s a list to get you started.
The Islanders move to Barclays this season hasn’t been without some hiccups, to put it nicely. One of the issues is that some seats have majorly obstructed views. Certainly the people in charge of such things want to fix this to better serve their paying fans, right? Right? Guys?
