The Capitals have moved on from their lopsided loss to the Predators to match up with yet another Western Conference foe in the Colorado Avalanche. The Avalanche are still very bad and that was true even before they traded away Matt Duchene. The problem is that I’m not exactly sure the Capitals are still good.
Game is at 9PM on NBCSWANTONBOMB, because mountain time is the worst time. Yours truly will have your recap.

A 9PM start is worse than a 10PM start right? I feel like with a 10PM start I can just commit to staying up late that night, but with a 9PM start that extra free hour revs up the bedtime shuffle in my brain. What say you commenters?
That is all.
