Welcome to Game Four. Let’s Do. This. It’s on. It’s so on.
The Caps need this game and, if they play much like they did on Monday night, they have a good chance of evening up the series. Just to make the challenge a little more difficult, Barry Trotz appears to have made a lineup decision that makes his team worse. More on that below.
8 PM start, unfortunately. NBCSN, even more unfortunately.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|Washington Capitals||56-18-8||52.0%||101.1||21.9% (5th)||85.2% (2nd)|
|Pittsburgh Penguins||48-26-8||53.0%||100.6||18.4% (16th)||84.4 % (5th)|
WELP, Nate Schmidt is out and Mike Weber is in. This is peak silliness.
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Oshie
Johansson – Kuznetsov – Williams
Chimera – Richards – Burakovsky
Winnik – Beagle – Wilson
Alzner – Niskanen
Orlov – Carlson
Peter seems to be taking it well:
What a terrible idea. Basically squandering the advantage of the Letang suspension. https://t.co/6es2srNJZW

Spenser and Ian broke down the Weber-Schmidt lineup swap with more substance and more nuance.

Manny Machado and Bryce Harper are the two best players in baseball and they're both in this area. Go watch a game.
