It’s a secret to everybody that tonight’s foes, the Philadelphia Flyers, are currently outside the playoff picture. Trailing the Islanders by four points purely based on the overtime-loss point, the Flyers look bound for that miserable spot: no postseason and no lottery ticket.
Unless they go on a run, which they’ll try to do tonight at Verizon Center, 7:30 PM on CSN. Until then, let’s all play Nintendo.
|Team||Record||SA%||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|Washington Capitals||43-13-7||52.8%||103.7||22.0% (6th)||84.4% (6th)|
|Philadelphia Flyers||30-26-7||50.7%||99.1||21.4% (10th)||81.6% (13th)|

Orlov – Niskanen
Orpik – Shattenkirk
Micah of hockeyviz.com has a neat-o way to visualize Washington’s potential first round playoff opponent. Looks like we’ve got a date with the Islanders again. (But, man, how cool would it be to watch the Caps play a handful of ex-Caps in Toronto?)
I’m currently faking a knee injury (don’t tell) so that Aileen won’t give me a hard time for skipping exercise and spending all day playing the new Zelda. Have any RMNBers played it yet? Any early reviews? Are there wizzrobes and darknuts? (I ask because, as you may have heard, I recently beat the second quest of the original Legend of Zelda, and yes, I will accept your congratulations in the comments.)
