The Capitals resume their tour of Canada this evening to face off against the Montreal Canadiens. They will finally return home to Capital One Arena on November 3rd when they host the Dallas Stars.
Both the Capitals and the Canadiens are having a similar start to the season, in terms of their record, but the Capitals take the advantage on the power play percentage while the Canadiens have an edge on the shot attempt. Anything can happen, the Canadiens are wild.
Just to throw you off a tad, puck drop will be around 7:30PM. You can stream the game live and tune in at 6:30PM to the pregame with the good folks at NBC Sports Washington. Your recap will be brought to you from Mr. Peter Hassett.
|Shot Attempt %||53.9% (7th)||49.8% (16th)|
|Power Play||16.3 (21st)||37.1% (1st)|
|Penalty Kill||77.5 (18th)||72.5% (25th)|
