The Capitals had an awesome comeback on Sunday only to tie it up and lose in overtime to the Detroit Mike Gree- I mean, Red Wings. Twitter exploded, everyone was dramatic, but we’re all over it now (and if you’re not…you should be). Time for the Capitals to focus on the very good Winnipeg Jets they have to play tonight. The game marks the beginning of their four-game, week-long road trip.
Even with the healthy scratch of Jakub Vrana, hopefully the Capitals can snag a road WIN in WINNIPEG (sorry) to start their trip on a high note.
The game starts at 8 PM. Just an extra hour and enough time to throw you off a lil’. I’m an old lady so the possibility of me passing out early is high, but Sir Pete will have your recap.

I hope you’ve all been watching the Olympic Games, but not just any games. The USA Women’s Hockey Team games and not just for the familiar sounds of John Walton…but because I shouldn’t have to convince you to watch them. They’re great.
This morning, the USA Women defeated OAR (not the band, the Olympic Athletes from Russia) 5-0. This also included the two goals that Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson scored in six seconds. Read that one more time. TWO GOALS IN SIX SECONDS. You can read the full recap of the game on usahockey.com, but for now…here’s the third USA goal from Lamoureaux-Davidson that I will have playing on a loop and projected on my gravestone:
And as quick as that it’s 3-0 after an amazing goal from Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson. pic.twitter.com/Lwz187vYQx
