The injured Capitals team continues their road trip this evening with a quick stop to visit the Montreal Canadiens. Currently, the Canadiens hold a four-point lead over the Capitals and have a pretty dangerous Max Domi in the lineup. Not only did he beat the Capitals at the last minute on November 2nd, but Domi has registered at least one point for the Habs in each of the last nine games. He’s currently sitting with 24 points, including 10 goals. This makes him 13th in the league for points and only three goals behind Alex Ovechkin. Basically, Domi looks GOOD.
Puck drop is at 7:30 PM this evening. As usual, you can stream NBCSWA’s coverage on all of your devices, including the pregame beginning at 6:30PM and the entire game. Chris from the comments will be providing you with a recap.

As always, thanks to Izzy at the Washington Post for the scoops. TJ Oshie and Evgeny Kuznetsov are dealing with concussions, so they are not on the ice. Pheonix Copley is starting for his fourth straight game, but according to Coach Reirden, you can expect to see Braden Holtby back on Wednesday for the game against the Chicago Blackhawks:
Ovechkin – Eller – Wilson
Vrana – Backstrom – Burakovsky
Stephenson – Boyd – DSP
Jaskin – Dowd – Connolly
Orlov – Carlson
Kempny – Niskanen
Djoos – Bowey
It’s not really a Montreal Canadiens game unless we bring up PK Subban. So.
A youth team from Ontario is here in Nashville. The Preds usually have a player who’s injured come out for photos and a meet and greet. That injured player this time happened to be P.K. Subban. Who was very P.K. Subban. pic.twitter.com/QGwYODhBad

Honestly, the more Gritty the merrier in my opinion. During the first intermission of the Flyers vs. Lightning game, Gritty took to the ice with the Mites on Ice. This time? A Mite tried to fight Gritty.

The kid won, but got thrown in the penalty box.
little kids get a once-in-a-lifetime chance to play on the ice during the intermissions of NHL games. it’s adorable.
last night, one of those kids decided to go rogue and use his time in the spotlight to fight Gritty. twice.
