The Caps come into Ottawa tonight to face a Senators team that they should beat, despite the fact that the Sens have the league’s best defenseman, Erik Karlsson, on their roster.
The Senators aren’t a very good team. If the Caps struggle, it’s another concerning performance to add to the list that’s been growing longer at an alarming rate.
But let’s not talk about that. Let’s talk about something good. I’ve compiled a wishlist for tonight’s game:
I’ll take a win that involves any three of these wishlist items. What’s on your wishlist for tonight?
7:30 faceoff on CSN.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|Washington Capitals||51-15-5||51.2%||101.6||23.0% (2nd)||84.1% (5th)|
|Ottawa Senators||34-31-8||46.7%||101.2||16.4% (26th)||75.4% (29th)|
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Williams
Burakovsky – Kuznetsov – Oshie
Chimera – Johansson – Beagle
Winnik – Richards – Wilson
Alzner – Niskanen
Orpik – Orlov
Weber – Chorney
With all that talk of wishlists in the intro, I bet y’all thought I might drop Pearl Jam’s Wishlist, from their 1998 album Yield, on you. Wrong. It’s Ryan Adams time. Because, when I want to channel positive thoughts about my favorite sports team, I think of Mr. Sunshine, Ryan Adams.
Sorry we dropped some dark posts on you guys today. Here are some rottweiler puppies as a peace offering. Side note: if you have a rottweiler, let’s be friends.
Oh, and then there’s also this:
So, we good now?
Oh, we’re not? How about this image.

Look at Chorney and Latta being all chill af. There’s Evgeny Kuznetsov putting his hand up like “no photographs, please.” Then there’s Smiling Nate Schmidt just being happy, and Matt Niskanen in the background being all emo and introverted. What a pic.
We’re having a party and we want you to come. Please RSVP on Facebook.
