The Washington Capitals have officially clinched a playoff spot, so I guess we’re done here. Wrong! We still have a few more games to go, but I swear we’re almost at ‘loffs time.
The Hurricanes are still barely alive in the playoff race. By “barely alive” I mean they are still technically in the race to get a playoff spot, but they will need to win tonight and have the Devils not earn a single point in any of their remaining games. If they lose tonight, they are done.
As for the Capitals, they are cruising through on their five game winning streak. If they win tonight, this will be their longest winning streak of the season. If the Capitals also win tonight and win one more game before the end of the season, they will clinch the Metro Division title. This is not a bad space to be in.
The puck will drop a tad after 7 PM on your local NBCSN. Delightful boy, CFTC, will have your recap.

There was an optional skate this morning, but with some information gleaned from Isabelle, these look like the likely lines. Don’t quote us on this. Please.
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Burakovsky – Backstrom – Oshie
Vrana – Eller – DSP
Stephenson – Beagle – Connolly
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Niskanen
Orpik – Djoos
Since the Washington Capitals are officially going to the playoffs, you should already know exactly what to do.
It’s buy a ‘loffs shirt (or mug) time. They are very stylish and I bet you didn’t know that we have a model on the RMNB staff. Yep, it’s true. Here is Peter modeling his very own, which he will be wearing tonight at the game. It’s sure to be one of the hottest pieces of merch this spring/summer, so get yours while you can before they hit all the fashion week runways!!

No matter if you celebrate Easter or not, I think we can all talk about one of the best parts of this holiday. Here’s a hint, it’s the same as Valentine’s Day.
That’s right it is the candy (especially when the holiday passes and you can get all the candy for 50 percent off at your local drugstore). I’m ranking my top five favorites and you should too:
