Your Washington Capitals have ventured into the Canadian west for their first extended road trip of the season. Tonight they meet good old pal Jay Beagle’s new unit, the Vancouver Canucks. Unfortunately, we won’t see Jay on ice tonight as he is injured.
The legendary Peter Hassett has your late, late night recap. If you’re planning on staying up with us for some after dark puck, tune into NBCS Washington tonight at 9 PM when their coverage starts and with their online streaming service you can do so in bed with your laptop.

Head coach Todd Reirden told the Post’s Samantha Pell that it’s likely that the forward lines that ended the game against Florida would start against Vancouver. These are those lines:
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – DSP
Stephenson – Backstrom – Oshie
Vrana – Eller – Connolly
Jaskin – Dowd – Burakovsky
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Niskanen
Orpik – Djoos
PHILADELPHIA: we decided it’s time to get Gritty. For you, the Gritty Puckster. It’s Doritos ice cream in an ice cream sandwiches, which kinda resembles a puck. This thing is a serious slap shot so get to our shop, try it, and report back. I repeat: Philadelphia only! @GrittyNHL pic.twitter.com/0i3eClDCSx
