The Capitals are on the road and headed to the land of Cuban sandwiches, Big Cat rescue, and nothing else. That’s right, the boys are in Tampa Bay to face off against the Lightning. A quick change in net is the only real change you’ll be seeing from the Capitals, while the Lightning are most likely trying to embed video of Alex Ovechkin’s play into their brains.
Personally, I’m going to be doing some voodoo rituals in order to make sure we see a hat trick of Ovechkin hat tricks, so I suggest you do the same.
The game’s at 7:30 PM on NBC Washington. Good Tweet Pete will have a bedtime story for you, also known as the recap.

Ya girl, Izzy from the WaPo has your lines. No changes, except in goal. Philipp Grubauer is in the net, but it was planned so DON’T PANIC.
Burakovsky – Backstrom – Oshie
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Vrana
Connolly – Eller – Chiasson
Walker – Beagle – DSP
Orlov – Niskanen
Orpik – Carlson
Ness – Chorney
Is Alex Ovechkin currently en fuego? Yes, he’s a monster, but let’s not forget the unsung hero of those goals…Evgeny Kuznetsov.
It’s banana’s that Alex Ovechkin has 7 goals in 2 games, but I think it’s more crazy that Evgeny Kuznetsov’s assisted on all 7 of them.

A couple in Edmonton is divorcing after 35 years of marriage. Recently, they had to appear in court for a custody dispute over their Oilers season tickets. The judge decided to order the couple to split the 41 home games up evenly, with the husband choosing first since the tickets have always been in his name. He also has to pay $15,000 in monthly spousal support to his now ex-wife, so technically she could just buy her own tickets, right? But, like author (and twitter superstar) Pete Blackburn said, the timing here could not have been worse. This couple has had these tickets for years and years. The Oilers just broke their 11-season playoff drought and now they have to split the tickets? Unbelievable, but also, maybe this couple was the key to the Oilers making it into the post-season.
