The Capitals’ historical, magical, cinnamon-roll-tastic regular-season continues as we approach the trade deadline. The Caps got an early start on their deadline moves by picking up Mike Weber from the Buffalo Sabres last night. Weber, probably a spare part for a hopefully long playoff run, won’t see action tonight; he’s on baby watch. In the meantime, the Habs are in town, primed to give the Capitals their 45th win of the season.
Game’s 7 PM on CSN unless you’re at Verizon Center, in which case it’ll be right in front of you. I’ll be doing your in-game coverage and recap duty, and I’m a bit under the weather today, so please be gentle with me.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|Washington Capitals||44-10-4||51.9%||102.0||23.2% (1st)||84.8% (4th)|
|Montreal Canadiens||28-27-5||52.6%||99.0||18.3% (16th)||83.4% (6th)|
No morning skate. If we assume Marcus is healthy, here’s how they’ll look tonight.
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Williams
Burakovsky – Backstrom – Oshie
Chimera – Johansson – Wilson
Laich – Richards – Latta
Schmidt – Carlson
Alzner – Niskanen
Orpik – Orlov
Have some exciting life news to share. From now on you’ll be able to read my work on the @Sportsnet platform, which I think is pretty cool.
