The Canucks come to town for a game the Caps need to take advantage of. For starters, the Canucks just aren’t a very good team. Furthermore, they played last night in Florida and are in the midst of a five game road trip that has seen them away from home since Tuesday. When the schedule does you favors like this, you need to take advantage. If the Caps don’t take two points this evening, it will be a missed opportunity.
Puck drop is at 5:00 pm on CSN.
|Team||Record||SA%||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
Matt Niskanen might return to the lineup this evening but we won’t know until closer to game time. Barry Trotz will speak to reporters at 3.
Johansson – Backstrom – Oshie
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Williams
Burakovsky – Eller – Vrana
Winnik – Beagle – Wilson
Alzner – Carlson
Orpik – Orlov
Schmidt – Chorney
Just going on a hunch here, but maybe the Canucks shouldn’t have the Sedin’s spend the majority of their 5-on-5 minutes with Brandon Sutter. After all, the twins possession numbers drop around 10 percentage points when they play with Sutter.
Apparently this is a thing? A funny, beautiful thing
