The Capitals are on the road to face the Predators in Nashville. The Preds are on a bit of a hot streak and hopefully, with the return of Matt Niskanen, the Caps will be able to squash it. Wait, did I just say the return of Matt Niskanen? You better believe it.
The Capitals will also have to watch out for PK Subban, not just because he made Forbes’ #30under30 list with none other than the glorious Braden Holtby, but he has also racked up three goals in the last four games. Montreal was so stupid to trade this man.
The game is at 8 PM airing on NBCSN. Good Tweet Pete has your recap. Let’s party.

A few moves happened today and it is your civic duty to stay up-to-date with the latest news.
First, the Montreal Canadiens claimed goaltender Antti Niemi off waivers from the Florida Panthers. My favorite twitter is sad Habs fans twitter, so I love this move even though it is very bad for the Canadiens.

Second, the Tampa Bay Lighting acquired goaltender Louis Domingue from Arizona in exchange for goaltender Michael Leighton and forward Tye McGinn. Can you imagine being Domingue? From Arizona to Tampa Bay? From zero to sixty?
Yay Matt Niskanen is back. Yay for this cute sign by Jake Bedsaul (via Chris O’Kane). Yay what a day.
