Happy Sunday, friends. Hopefully it’s less rainy and cold than Saturday, and hopefully there’s a Caps win in it for you. This afternoon will be the second of three meetings between Washington and Detroit (the Caps won the first 4-3 in overtime), and it will probably be the final one with Mike Green in the lineup – unless he’s wearing a different uniform for the next one, wink wink, nudge nudge.
The game starts at 3 PM on the usual channel. I’ll be writing about it for your pleasure.

I’ll level with you: I have no idea. I’m gonna say Andre’s in and Braden’s in net, but these are guesses.
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Wilson
Vrana – Kuznetsov – Oshie
Connolly – Eller – Burakovsky
Stephenson – Beagle – DSP
Orlov – Niskanen
Djoos – Carlson
Orpik – Bowey

Those tweets from Teubert (24 games played for the Oilers in 2011-2012) comes in reaction to statements by Montreal’s Brendan Gallagher. You can read some background and perspective on The Athletic.
Teubert and Subban were teammates on Canada at 2009 WJC. Open secret that many of his teammates referred to Subban as “Monday” as in, no one likes Mondays https://t.co/c3I3pgAvlJ
