This game is going to be lit. Not only is this a match-up of two elite NHL teams in the same division and two Vezina Trophy winning netminders, but there are also some serious stakes at hand. The Jackets come to town looking to tie the NHL’s longest win streak of 17 games and give themselves a shot at breaking the record set by the 1993 Pittsburgh Penguins. Caps and Jackets games are normally chippy so strap in.
