As far as I am concerned, last night looked pretty dang easy for the Washington Capitals. It should be simple for them to replicate last night’s performance again for the rest of the season, but especially tonight when they travel to Pittsburgh to play the Penguins.
I always had an anxious knot in my stomach when we played Pittsburgh. Maybe it was just a hope-esque feeling of wanting the Capitals to do well enough to prove themselves or something. Anyway, it’s now gone because I don’t care about them. I don’t even know who the Pittsburgh Penguins are anymore.
Chris from the comments will have his first recap of the season for you after the game. You can watch pregame coverage on NBCS Washington beginning at 6 PM and you can stream it online.
Stats from last season:
|Shot Attempt %||52.3% (7th)||we did it|
|PDO||99.9 (14th)||see ya suckers|
|Power Play||26.2% (1st)||hahahaha|
|Penalty Kill||80.0% (17th)||byeee|
What’s the point of tweaking the lines if they worked pretty dang well last night:
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Connolly
Vrana – Backstrom – Oshie
Burakovsky – Eller – Stephenson
Walker – Dowd – DSP
Orlov – Niskanen
Carlson – Djoos
Orpik – Bowey
Caps-Bruins got a 3.7 rating in the dc market last night, the best ever regular season Caps rating on NBCSN
