The Caps haven’t lost since December 29, and they haven’t gone without a point since December 27. That was back in the salad days of 2016, when everything was simple, and the Wii U was the best Nintendo system you could get.
Now, after dropping monster teams like the Hawks, Penguins, and Blue Jackets, the Caps will today face their toughest threat yet, a team that has won 2 of its last 10 games and scratches its most interesting player, The Philadelphia Flyers.
Join me, won’t you, at 1:00 PM? Game’s at home, and CSN has the local telecast.

The Caps didn’t practice yesterday, so let’s pretend these lines are still accurate. They’re the same as Friday but with Grubauer in net.
Ovechkin – Backstrom– Oshie
Johansson – Kuznetsov – Williams
Connolly – Eller – Burakovsky
Winnik – Beagle – Wilson
Alzner – Carlson
Orlov – Niskanen
Orpik – Schmidt

Dr. Girlfriend and I attended the Caps vs the Hawks. The above photo is how we looked after the Hawks’ “goal” which was then reversed. A good time was had by all, especially Jay Beagle and Tom Wilson. It was nice to see some RMNB readers, like Megan, Adam, and Owen, plus old friends like Sam and Wes. But most importantly, it was good to shake Aileen’s faith to the core, really break her down as a hockey fan, so we can build her back up again as a 100% Caps fan.
No spoilers, but please do check back with RMNB on Monday for a special announcement. OoOoOoOoO
