Tonight the Washington Capitals return to Detroit after beating the Red Wings in overtime at Little Caesars Arena in late October. Mike Green and the boys are amidst an unsuccessful season where their main focus will be on the draft lottery rather than the playoffs. Meanwhile, the Caps look to keep pace with their Metro Division challengers.
We have a 7:30 PM start on NBCSN tonight. Peter has your recap.
|Shot Attempt %||48.3%||48.0%|
