What’s better than ten? Eleven. Your Washington Capitals will be looking for their eleventh straight victory at home as they take on a division rival in the Carolina Hurricanes. The Canes have not been so great on the road of late, giving up a combined twelve goals in their last two road tries.
Another 7 PM start on the familiar NBCSWA. One Patrick Holden will grace your face with the recap.

Lines from Isabelle at WaPo. Braden Holtby will get the first half of the back to back against the Canes. Brett Connolly finds himself as the new odd man out.
