On this lovely Sunday afternoon, the Capitals have trekked up to Philadelphia to play the Flyers in another Metropolitan division brawl. The Flyers have only won three of their last ten games, while the Capitals continue to impress on their four game winning streak. It might be a bit harder for the Capitals to close tonight, being on the road and without Evgeny Kuznetsov, but based on the Flyers recent performance, I remain optimistic.
Look, I’m not usually the first person to have high hopes about anything hockey related, but the fact is that the Capitals are currently on a solid winning streak. This winning streak nonsense is occurring…at exactly the correct time. I’m constantly a ball of both nerves and excitement.
Puck drop will be a tad after 5 PM on NBCSWA, just so you can get to sleep at a proper time. Our favorite boy from the comments, Mr. Christopher, will have your recap.
|Shot Attempt %||49.6%||48.1%|
Soooo we won’t know who is in the lineup until a tad bit later, so who knows what the heck the lines will look like.
Ovechkin – Backstrom– Wilson
Burakovsky – Stephenson – Oshie
Vrana – Eller – Connolly
Chiasson – Beagle – DSP
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Niskanen
Orpik – Djoos
The U.S. Paralympics sled hockey team are officially three-peat gold medal champions! They brought home gold last night after a wild overtime against Canada. Congrats, guys!!
