If the Washington Capitals win tonight against the Pittsburgh Penguins, they will have ten wins in a row. This will also mean that the Metro division will have 3 teams with double-digit win streaks in the last two months (Flyers and Jackets are the other two). What the heck. Tune in to watch the Capitals try to extend the streak, Holtby return to the net, and so much more.
Puck drop is at 7:00 PM. It will be a very fun game so, of course, you can find it on NBCSN.

The Caps had a poorly attended optional skate early this morning, so we don’t have a concrete lineup. What we do know is John Carlson is out with a lower-body injury (but is likely to return Thursday). So please everyone, sound the Chorn Horn and welcome Taylor Chorney back to the lineup. Here’s our best guess at what the D-pairings will look like.
Ovechkin – Backstrom– Oshie
Johansson – Kuznetsov – Williams
Connolly – Eller – Burakovsky
Winnik – Beagle – Wilson
Alzner – Niskanen
Orpik – Orlov
Schmidt – Chorney

PHI-WSH: Turned into a laugher real fast. Caps wrapped up Giroux pretty nicely. Kuz line had trouble with Schenn line but good otherwise. pic.twitter.com/BFZNPemKqo

Is NXT’x Tye Dillinger: The Perfect 10. Hailing from Niagara Falls, Canada, this lovable loser is a great workhorse in the ring
but always falls short in the big match. If the Caps can extend their win streak to a perfect 10 games, we hope you will join us from home, raising both of your arms in the air and flashing both of your palms out. 10, 10, 10.
Finally, we need to take a minute to salute all the RMNB readers who are rocking our Deadguins/I Hate PA shirts around their naked chests today.
