Jakub Vrana is set to make his NHL debut tonight when the Isles come to town and presumably lose to the Caps. The Caps selected Vrana in the first round, 13th overall, of the 2014 entry draft. He’s posted 16 points in 18 games with Hershey this season and is the Caps top offensive prospect. Maybe he’ll do great! Maybe he won’t! But this definitely adds some extra intrigue to tonight’s matchup.
Speaking of things that are defininite, Tom Wilson will definitely do something tonight that will cause the Isles, as well as a portion of their fans on Twitter, to lose their minds.
The action starts at 7:00 pm on CSN.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|New York Islanders||8-10-4||45.6%||100.0||12.1%||80.8%|
Per Isabelle, here’s what we’re working with tonight:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Johansson
Burakovsky – Kuznetsov – Vrana
Connolly – Eller – Williams
Winnik – Beagle – Wilson
Alzner – Niskanen
Orlov – Carlson
Orpik – Schmidt
Interestingly, Trotz seemed to suggest that Kuznetsov is better on zone entries on PP1 than Johansson.

Music game time, here’s the criteria: you have to pick two songs to listen to for the rest of your life. But they can’t be just any two songs. The songs have to be the last two songs from the same album. A pretty strong contender for me would be Nightswimming and Find the River off of REM’s Automatic for the People. What songs you got?
