Tonight, the Caps are gunning for their third straight win. They’ve got a killer second line, and the power play has finally clicked. Yeah, yeah–it’s early in the season, but things are looking really good.
Tonight’s game against the Florida Panthers takes the Caps down south to Sunrise, Florida, where today’s high is a balmy 83 degrees. In addition to fabulous weather, the Panthers also boast a 2-0-1 record. Their lone loss, like the Caps’, was in the pesky ol’ shootout.
The Panthers secured the Atlantic Division championship last season before getting booted in the first round. This season, they’ve returned as a younger, better team. They’re currently a top possession team–as are the Caps. This should be a jolly good game. Puck drop is at 7:30 on CSN.
