Having delivered yet another rout, the Caps head north to Canada’s capital to face the Senators. With 55 points, the Sens are second in the Atlantic Division.
The last time these two teams played each other, Braden Holtby notched a shutout in a 1-0 Caps victory. That took place last year. You know what else hasn’t happened since last year? The Caps have not lost a game in regulation (since December 27, to be precise.)
Meanwhile, the Caps’ point streak is at 14 games. If they tally another point, the 2016-17 Caps will have tied a franchise record. Casual.
CSN has your puck drop at 7:30 PM.

Here’s what our gal Isabelle is thinking:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Oshie
Johansson – Kuznetsov – Williams
Connolly – Eller – Burakovsky
Winnik – Beagle – Wilson
Alzner – Niskanen
Orpik – Orlov
Chorney – Schmidt
Chandler Stephenson is on my connecting flight to Ottawa, so yeah, he’s been recalled by Caps.
