The Capitals are at home for their fourth game in a row. Tonight, they will be facing the not-so-hot Chicago Blackhawks who had a quick two-day break after playing five games in seven days. They walked away with a record of 1-2-2.
Maybe I’m about to jinx the game tonight, I don’t care, but I have been very excited to be a part of a world where the Blackhawks are considered meh. They’re hoping to make a comeback tonight, despite missing Corey Crawford who is out with a lower-body injury.
Speaking of injuries, the Capitals have some of their own that hopefully won’t affect tonight too much, but a gal can dream. TJ Oshie will not be in the lineup tonight after suffering from an upper-body injury last game. But, on the upside, Andre Burakovsky might be back before you can blink.
Game is at 8 PM on NBCSN this time, folks! Pat Holden will have your recap before you rest your eyes.

Yes, I agree, the Metro division is fun to watch. Especially when you’re not involved in the division and you’re not a constant ball of nerves thinking, “Yay we won a game!” to immediately thinking “Oh, so did the entire division. Again.”

As I’m sure you’ve seen by now, Spotify has posted everyone’s top song played for 2017. I’m not going to share mine because it is a wild mess of Rosemary Clooney and the Rumjacks, but what I will share is something hysterical my fellow RMNB gal Cara shared.
They did this last year too, but Spotify revealed its users most embarrassing listening habits on massive billboards!!! They are all gold, but here are my two faves.
