The Capitals begin their big five-game home stand tonight against the LA Kings. The Kings are currently tied with the Caps in wins, but are leading the league when it comes to the penalty kill. While this game might seem a bit daunting, history is on the Caps’ side. The Capitals have won three straight home games against the Kings, not to mention they’ve been lookin’ preeeeetty good lately. Not that I’m biased or anything.
The game starts at 7 PM on on NBCSWA(hoooo). Pat Holden will have your recap before you rest your eyes and go to sleep. Welcome back, folks. Work hard, grind it out, and before you know it you’ll be out again for another holiday.

In the least shocking news possible, Joel Ward is still being adorable. Look at him, being all happy to skate out to the Barbados ad, then take this blurry picture, and tweet out a Happy Independence Day to Barbados. It’s their 51st independence day celebration. I love him so much.
If you don’t really care about the LA Kings, I would like to remind you of a reason to care.
Whatever, I’m over it.
