The Caps visit the Kings tonight in a match-up that is sure to be billed as a potential Cup finals preview. The Caps have understandably not seemed as sharp or up for games recently. Tonight is a game they’ll need to be up for or they’ll likely get blown out of the building. Justin Williams and Mike Richards are returning to their old stomping ground. Here’s hoping they both pot a goal and the good guys emerge victorious.
The Caps come at the Kings at 10:30pm on CSN. They best not miss.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|Washington Capitals||49-13-4||51.4%||101.7||23.2% (3rd)||84.7% (4th)|
|Los Angeles Kings||39-22-4||56.7%||99.3||22.2% (5th)||81.1% (15th)|
The Caps haven’t skated as of the time that I needed to submit this, but they probably will have by the time you read this. Here’s a guess on the lines:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Oshie
Burakovsky – Kuznetsov – Williams
Chimera – Johansson – Wilson
Winnik – Richards – Beagle
Alzner – Niskanen
Orpik – Orlov
Weber – Schmidt
[Editor’s note: Pat was almost right. Chorney’s in for Schmidt, who’s a healthy scratch, per Isabelle.]
During some recent pregames, Peter has included some food opinions which some of you have had strong opinions about. I feel like I’d be letting the entire RMNB community down if I don’t bring up a food opinion for us to argue about in the comments. Today, we talk pizza toppings.
The greatness of pizza isn’t up for debate here, obviously. What is up for debate is the toppings you prefer. There are a lot of great combos that you can put on a pizza, so I’m not going to go with rankings or a 100% firm take here, but instead just lay out a few guidelines.
Hit me with your pizza takes in the comments.

I ran a very important, very meaningful poll on Twitter the other day and wanted to share the results with you. Please feel free to share your vote in the comments.
Also, 309 votes but a 50-50 split means one of these options won 155-154. Is Hungry Eyes highlighted because it won? Or is the first options always the winner in the event of a percentage tie?
