When we chant “back-to-back” we’re usually talking about how the Capitals deserve to win the Stanley Cup again this season. Unfortunately, tonight is a different “back-to-back” for the Capitals as they play their the second set of back-to-back games since the season started. The boys are travelling up to New Jersey to face the Devils in their home opener. Why does it feel like it has been 600 years since our home opener and the Devils are just now celebrating theirs?! Time is wild.
Once again, Mr. Peter Hassett will have the recap for you. You can watch pregame coverage on NBCS Washington beginning at 6 PM and you can stream the game online.
The New Jersey Devils have only played one game, so do what you will with these “stats”:
|Shot Attempt %||60.0%||46.4%|
Tonight, we will see Pheonix Copley in the lineup facing off against the young Devils team.
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Connolly
Vrana – Backstrom – Oshie
Burakovsky – Eller – Stephenson
Jaskin – Dowd – DSP
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Niskanen
Orpik – Djoos
Important announcement…it’s Christopher’s birthday. That’s all.

Have I mentioned Evgeny Kuznetsov? No? Not enough? Okay, well, everyone was extremely chill about Evgeny Kuznetsov playing an incredible game last night, registering four points, and then finishing it off with an all-time quote.
that’s it, that’s the tweet

I’ve only been in D.C. for a month, but it’s become pretty clear to me that Evgeny Kuznetsov is among the Top 3 or so players in the NHL.
