The Caps won a close one against a profoundly bad hockey team in Detroit last night. Tonight they’ll face a way better team, but one that’s still struggling out of the gate with just two wins in six games. A decisive win over the Florida Panthers would go a long way towards convincing us that the Caps will not be suck this year.
Game’s at 7:30 PM on NBCSNDCWTFBBQ if you’re not attending in person. Your bedtime boys (i.e. your boys with bedtimes), Pat and Peter, will be doing your recap and highlights and then it’s straight to bed.

The Caps had an optional skate today, so we don’t really know what the lines will be tonight. Here’s how they lined up last night, except with probably Grubi in net.
Wilson – Backstrom – Oshie
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Vrana
Connolly – Eller – Burakovsky
DSP – Beagle – Chiasson
Djoos – Carlson
Orpik – Bowey
Orlov – Chorney
Last night, Chris Cerullo called Ovi Ovie.
OVIE WINS IT

This is incorrect. Ovi is Ovi.
Ovie is a bulldog. Ove is Rolf Lassgård. Ovi is Ovi.
We know this because it’s Ovi’s twitter account.

Even if the labels on his sticks disagree, Ovi is four times more common than Ovie. No one calls him Ovy except for Justin Bourne, and don’t even get me started on him.

I am buckwild for horror movies. Let’s discuss some I’ve seen recently and some all-time classics.
I still want to see (or re-watch) this month: Scanners, High Tension, Don’t Breathe,
