The Washington Capitals can officially clinch a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference tonight. Woo-hoo! If the red-clad boys earn a point and the Philadelphia Flyers lose in regulation, or if they win outright and the Flyers lose in any manner, the Caps will be returning to the big dance.
We’ll see how it plays out at 8 PM on NBCSN. Pat will have your recap.
|Shot Attempt %||45.2%||48.1%|
DSP and Christian Djoos draw back into the fold, Braden Holtby will get the start after Philipp Grubauer’s injury, and we have an NHL debut for Shane Gerisch! Here’s how they’ll line up:
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Burakovsky – Backstrom – Oshie
Gersich – Eller – DSP
Stephenson – Beagle – Chiasson
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Niskanen
Orpik – Djoos
I don't mean to keep hitting this dead horse but of the top-25 scorers in the NHL only 7, at any point in their career, have been traded.
Four of them were traded by Peter Chiarelli.
8. Taylor Hall
9. Phil Kessel
11. Blake Wheeler
25. Tyler Seguin
That's not just bad luck.

Pretty sure I could do better.
If you have ever wondered what a human would look like in Peep form, I have your answer.
