Things didn’t turn out great for the Caps on Friday night in Arizona. But the team in red can get back on track in Vegas on Saturday night against the Golden Knights.
You know the Schmidtuation. We know the Schmidtuation. The Golden Knights have a player named Nate Schmidt. We kind of like that guy and were bummed when Vegas selected him in the expansion draft.
Vegas is 14-2-1 at home so far this season which I’m sure has nothing to do with opposing players visiting casinos and the like while they are in town.
It’s an 8 PM game and NBCSW has the TV coverage. Some guy named Peter Hassett will have the recap for you tonight.
|Shot Attempt %||50.9%||48.6%|
Best guess: Bowey draws in and Holtby is between the pipes.
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Wilson
Vrana – Kuznetsov – Oshie
Connolly – Eller – Burakovsky
Stephenson – Beagle – Chiasson
Orpik – Carlson
Orlov – Niskanen
Djoos – Bowey
As far as I remember, Peter was the first writer on the Schmidt bandwagon. Let’s celebrate that today with some Peter/Schmidt related links
This is just a small sample. Have any Schmidt links you want to share? Leave them in the comments.
TJ Oshie turns 31 today and Eddie Vedder turns 53. Having grown up listening to Pearl Jam, Vedder turning 53 is yet another reminder of how quickly this whole life thing goes by. Here’s one of my favorite Pearl Jam songs, one that talks about attempting to live in the moment because, after all, our time on this planet is going to be over in the blink of an eye. Carpe Diem, my friends.
