It’s a rematch for the ages, folks, as the Washington Capitals will take on the Vegas Golden Knights tonight at Capital One Arena. For those of you that need a quick refresher, the last time the Capitals played the Golden Knights, they won the whole dang thing. The Capitals could lose every game against the Golden Knights for the rest of eternity and I would never be bothered.
Anyway, important news, Michael Kempny will be back in the lineup this evening after taking a terrible elbow to the head during the preseason. It was so bad, Kempny doesn’t even remember the shift he took. We’re very glad to see him back on the ice.
Pete will have the recap for you. You can watch pregame coverage on NBCS Washington beginning at 7 PM and you can stream the game online.
Gotta love some stats when there hasn’t even been five regular season games:
|Shot Attempt %||57.2%||48.7%|
The expected lineup comes from an all-time favorite…Isabelle Khurshudyan from the Washington Post:
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Connolly
Vrana – Backstrom – Oshie
Burakovsky – Eller – Stephenson
Jaskin – Dowd – DSP
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Niskanen
Orpik – Djoos
The winner of “Fat Bear Week” has been crowned and she is a dream! Read all about her in this extremely pure piece from the Washington Post.
The Fattest Bear of 2018 is… 409 Beadnose!
Her radiant rolls were deemed by #FatBearWeek voters to be this year’s most fabulous flab. What does the she win for all this hard work? Stronger chances of living through the winter.
