It’s Friday the 13th, the DC baseball team suffered a crushing defeat on Thursday, and it’s an overcast day in the DC/Baltimore area. But fret not, friends as we’ve got hockey tonight to cure anything that may be ailing you.
Tom Wilson returns to the lineup for the Caps and Marcus Johansson will face his former team for the first time in the regular season. The former needs to stay out of trouble and do his best to help stabilize a third line and penalty kill unit that’s been bleeding shots against so far this season (he writes, not optimistically). We hope the latter has a wonderful season, but if he can stay off the score sheet tonight, that’d be great. Miss you, Mojo.
Young Chris Cerullo has the recap duties tonight so expect a lot of tweets about avocado toast and hotel room closets from one of my favorite millennials.
NBC Washington has your TV coverage for the 7 PM game.
|Shot Attempt %||50.3%||46.8%|

Burakovsky – Backstrom – Oshie
Connolly – Eller – Wilson
Chiasson – Beagle – DSP
