Two very sad teams are facing off this evening. In their last two games, the Caps lost bad to both the Islanders and the Maple Leafs. Now, they will be in Tampa Bay to play the Lightning, who are coming off a three-game road trip with zero wins. Both will be looking to break this depressing streak, especially Washington during their power play. Yikes.
Currently, Tampa Bay is sitting fourth in the Atlantic division which is exactly where the Caps are in theirs. While Washington might be currently sitting in the same spot, that doesn’t mean they’re equal especially considering Tampa Bay has played three more games. The Lightning are also at a slight disadvantage with their empty captain spot. Steven Stamkos is hurt and not expected to play for about the next four months.
We begin at 7:00 PM on CSN.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|Tampa Bay Lightning||13-11-1||49.45%||101.0||23.9%||81.3%|
Here we go:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Johansson
Burakovsky – Kuznetsov – Vrana
Carey – Eller – Williams
Connolly – Beagle – Wilson
Alzner – Niskanen
Orlov – Carlson
Orpik – Schmidt
Absolutely new level of dabbing. pic.twitter.com/8RC1nCP1Gp

It’s December and I am desperately trying to get into the holiday spirit despite the warm weather. So, let’s rank the best holiday movies.
I celebrate Christmas, so I don’t have any great Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Three Kings Day, etc. films but please chime in with them!
