The Washington Capitals are up 2-1 in the Stanley Cup Final and have another opportunity to take a win at home tonight. The Vegas Golden Knights are going to continue trying to find their momentum again, which could happen with their recent lineup changes. As for the Capitals, they’ll be sticking with their usual lineup.
It’s taken a while for all of this to sink in for me, but it’s starting to and I’m becoming a little speechless. Be safe wherever you’re rallying, have a good time, and let’s go Caps.
Puck drop is at 8PM on NBC (probably a bit more toward the 8:15PM mark, but still). After the game, Peter will have your recap.
The final regular season stats:
|Shot Attempt %||51.5%||48.3%|
No lineup changes, fam. Why fix what ain’t broken at the moment? Thanks to Isabelle Khurshudyan at the Washington Post, as always.
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Vrana – Backstrom – Oshie
Burakovsky – Eller – Connolly
Stephenson – Beagle – DSP
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Niskanen
Orpik – Djoos
Washington is 5-5 at home this season, 1-2 in Game 4s, with the win coming to tie the series in Columbus. Caps have been 2-2 after 4 first three rounds this playoff, will look to avoid that tonight.

I mean this, from the bottom of my heart. Don’t pollute the stairs, don’t pollute the streets. Have fun, but please be courteous.
If you do not pick up your trash from the steps or anywhere else after your capitals celebrations I will personally pick it up for you, drive to your house, and make you eat the piece you left so help me god.
