Hello again my friends. The Caps come into this matchup in Columbus after getting embarrassed by the Carolina Hurricanes 5-1 last Saturday. But fear not Caps fans, Barry Trotz has, uh, optimized his lines. #FirstLineBeagle is back and ready to pounce on the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Meanwhile the Jackets have bizarrely scored eight or more goals twice over the last five games yet sit four points away from the cellar of the Metropolitan division. They are both bad and dangerous at the same time. Also, here’s your daily reminder that John Tortorella sucks.
Puck drop is at 7 on CSN and your various streaming outlets.

Today, November 15th is officially “National clean out your refrigerator day”.
So everyone get to your refrigerators, make use of whatever leftovers you still have left, ration out about a week’s worth of food, and scrub down the space left.
It’s Thanksgiving in a week and two days. Preparation is key people.
Since we’re starting to actually feel some fall type weather in the DMV, I thought this would be appropriate before this season is all but forgotten in a week or so. My personal top 5 favorite things about fall.
