Sooooo… The Washington Capitals’ snowbird trek through California has not gone as planned. The team has lost both games so far. They can’t score, and they’re nursing a three-game losing streak.
The good news is that they’re about to play the worst of the three left-coast teams, Randy Carlyle’s Anaheim Ducks. Also good news: the Caps won’t have another late game until the end of the month, so you can get some sleep.
Puck drop’s at 9:30 PM. Telecast on CSN. Your boy Comments has pulled recap duty.
|Team||Record||SA%||PDO||Power Play||Penalty Kill|
|Washington Capitals||44-16-7||52.7%||103.9||21.3% (8th)||84.0% (6th)|
|Anaheim Ducks||35-23-10||50.1%||99.8||19.1% (16th)||85.0% (3rd)|
I don’t know and neither do you. Holtby in net, Schmidt likely returns to active duty. I’ll keep the Fs the same, but this is guesswork.
Johansson – Backstrom – Oshie
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Connolly – Eller – Williams
Winnik – Beagle – Vrana
Alzner – Carlson
Orlov – Niskanen
Orpik – Schmidt

Whatever we call it, seems like some serious weather is imminent. How much snow depends on if you trust North America’s free and patriotic forecasting model or Europe’s tax-and-spend, socialist model. Either way, be safe and be warm!
Guys, I’m so over California.
