The Caps are finally back after an eventful West Coast road trip. Tonight, they face the Carolina Hurricanes, who are desperately clawing for a playoff position.
Before Saturday night, the Caps were winning (and occasionally, losing) by a one-goal margin. That came crashing to an end with a 5-2 loss to the Sharks. The ‘Canes are a much weaker team, so where do we go from here? Answer: the playoffs.
The game is at 7 PM. Head on over to CSN-DC.

Yesterday was Pi Day, a holiday that both glorifies your fave irrational number and reveals which of your friends is a true nerd. Whether you love math or think of it as a four-letter word, take a minute to ask yourself: do I have math anxiety? The New Yorker, helpful as always, has written a diagnostic exam for your enlightened, test-taking pleasure. Peace out, Pascal.
