The late-night games are officially done for the year, as the Caps wrap up their west coast trip with an afternooner today with the Sharks in San Jose. The Caps need a W today to avoid going winless on the week.
Puck drops at 4:00 PM. Donya will make her recap debut so be nice.

Tom Wilson missed practice, so this projection is more project-y than usual. Based on yesterday as reported by Isabelle, let’s make some educated guesses.
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Connolly – Backstrom – Burakovsky
Vrana – Eller – Oshie
Stephenson – Beagle – Boyd
Orlov – Niskanen
Kempny – Carlson
Orpik – Jerabek
I respectfully disagreed with Elyse when she volunteered The Crown as one of the best series of 2017, but now that I’m catching bits of season two as Dr. Girlfriend watches, I see what Elyse was saying. Season one had super-thin characters; it just felt shallow to me despite all the pretty visuals. But in season two, the show has really zeroed in the internal struggles of the characters, especially Claire Foy. As Elizabeth, she’s got to show at least two or three layers of emotion in a lots of scenes. It’s terrifically compelling. And while I don’t read the show as anything like History, I admire how directly the show addressed the role of the abdicated King Edward in World War II. That’s a punch in the face, and the show doesn’t pull it one bit.
But I think they should snuggle the good dogs more. People ignore the dogs. It’s not right.
Anyway, Elyse was right. Don’t tell her I said so.
