The Capitals are hitting the road to play the Buffalo Sabres tonight, which will hopefully extend their winning streak to four games. The Capitals gained two points last night to pull ahead of the Flyers in the standings, but it was a struggle against the last-place Arizona Coyotes in overtime.
Just like the Capitals, the Sabres are beat up and will most likely to be playing without four of their top six defensemen. Hopefully, the Capitals can improve on the power play and snag two easy points tonight. But for this year’s Caps team, that’s never a given.
Game is at 7 PM on NBCSN and Pat will have your recap.
|Shot Attempt %||46.9%||47.8%|
There was no morning skate for the boys today, so we can only guess what the lines might look like for tonight. Might be a change or two, but we’ll know later.
Vrana – Backstrom – Oshie
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – DSP
Stephenson – Eller – Wilson
Walker – Beagle – Chiasson
Djoos – Carlson
Orpik – Bowey
Orlov – Chorney
It’s that time of year! Get yourself one of the sweetest lookin’ ugly sweater for the upcoming holiday season. Do not wait until the last minute and stress yourself out, like I do every year. They are gorgeous, but I am also very biased.
Last night, the Islanders visited the Colorado Avalanche and there was an entire section that dressed up like referees and cheered very loudly every time a whistle was blown. This is easily one of my all time favorite things I’ve ever seen.

They drank some beers, brought some signs, and even cheered the referees on.
