The Caps are off to a rockin’ start against the Flyers. Their 2-0 win on Thursday gave us a lot to smile about. Nate Schmidt, here’s to you.
Now it’s Saturday, and Sean Couturier is out, plus the Flyers have yet to score a goal this series. They’re a feisty team and eager to remedy some of their mistakes from the other night. Caps fans: hold onto your hats and hold onto your hearts.
Puck drop. 7 PM. CSN-DC. It’s gonna be lit.
