The Caps visit Glendale, Arizona tonight to take on the Coyotes in a game of hockey sanctioned by the National Hockey League. The Coyotes, a franchise with alumni such as Chris Pronger and Pavel Datsyuk, have lost seven in a row. Their record on the season is 7-24-5 with an equally impressive minus-45 goal differential.
If you sit down to watch this game at 7 PM, you’ll be early. If you turn on NBSCW, you won’t find any hockey tonight. The game is at 9 PM on The Plus, AKA NBCSW+. The recap will be brought to you by CFTC.

The Full 60 podcast with Craig Custance has quickly become one of my favorite listens this hockey season. Back in November, Craig had Coyotes GM John Chayka on as his guest. It’s a fascinating listen, especially if you like content that peels back the curtain a bit on being a GM of a sports team.
My brother texted this to me the other day. I have no idea what the story is behind this craziness, but it was definitely one of my favorite texts I received in 2017.
