Ladies and gentlemen, Capitals forward Andre Burakovsky has a bold prediction for tonight’s game. After a lightly attended morning skate, Burakovsky said this to the media.
Andre Burakovsky on Columbus win streak: "It's going to be a really fun moment for us to end it."

Yes, Andre Burakovsky is already thinking about what the taste of tonight’s sweet victory will taste like.
And Burakovsky should be confident. The Swedish winger has put special preparation into this game. Last night, he participated in a thrilling Instagram Live session with Tom Wilson (and former roommate/brobean Michael Latta commenting).

But tonight’s competition will be difficult and highly-motivated. The John Tortorella-led Columbus Blue Jackets are currently on a 16-game winning streak and are looking to match the league’s all-time record set by the Pittsburgh Penguins (17-straight wins during the 1992-93 season).
The Caps meanwhile have a modest three-game winning streak and trail the Blue Jackets by seven-standings points.
So good luck tonight, Burra, backing that up. Sure, the Caps have lost to the Blue Jackets both times they played them this season. But that just means the Caps are due.
