We’ve got one more date before we put a bow on Twenty Semin-teen. Tonight the Caps (49 standings points) host the Devils (50 standings points) with the top of the Metro Division on the line. It’s Marcus Johansson’s first game back at what used to be called Verizon Center since he was salary-dumped this summer.
The action starts at 7 PM back on NBCSWA. The esteemed Chris Cerullo will be your guide for the proceedings.

Pat has an awesome Caps raffle he’s going to tell you about

My 10-year-old niece Kate is running in the Disney 5K to raise money for Team Fox. Her motivation for doing this is that her Gram (my Mom) was diagnosed with Parkinson’s about six years ago.
Here’s the info on the latest raffle:

It’s not up for debate.
Programming note: the Sunday Snapshot will be tardy while I’m off the grid this weekend, putting this miserable year behind me and plotting new schemes to hatch in 2018.
As much as this year has been a festival of depredation and cruelty, there’s been some good stuff too. We spent the last month of pregames sharing some of our faves. Here’s them collected.
