Tonight, the Capitals return to Verizon Center to take on the Edmonton Oilers, who have been surprisingly hot lately. After some touch-and-go, the Caps got their groove back Wednesday night to crush the Flyers, 4-1. On the flip side, the Oilers have a 4-1 record in their last five games.
It’s been 13 days since the Caps last took to their home ice. Despite the recent rash of injuries, their recent dominance in DC suggests a good chance of two points tonight.
Puck drop at 7 PM on CSN-DC.
