Okay, now we should DEFINITELY win this one, right? Maybe? Hopefully?
The Caps are up against the Buffalo Sabres tonight, both teams that are struggling in different ways. Luckily they have the home rink advantage but the team could have a rough time facing off against Jack Eichel, who returned to the league on November 29th. Eichel was battling a high ankle sprain. Nonetheless, it looked like nothing had happened since he scored two points upon returning, including his first goal of the season. That will not help us.
As for the Caps, we have a bit of a line shakeup with the return of Winnik and Chorney. They are taking the places of Connolly and Schmidt. You should tune in not only to hear the sound of the chorn horn, but to see if the Caps can actually score on the power play. Help.
We will see you at 7:00 PM sharp on CSN.
|Team||Record||Possession||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
Winnik is taking Connolly’s place and Chorney is taking Schmidt’s. Here we go:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Johansson
Burakovsky – Kuznetsov – Vrana
Carey – Eller – Williams
Winnik – Beagle – Wilson
Alzner – Niskanen
Orlov – Carlson
Orpik – Chorney
We, as a nation, do not deserve videos of hockey player family reactions after their kid scores their first NHL goal ever. Watch the mother of Colorado Avalanche’s Sam Henley after his first goal the other day. Is someone chopping onions?
As the weather begins to get colder, we will have to start doing things we do not enjoy doing. Here are some top things that are the WORST to do during this time of year. Chime in with your own.
