While you might be on your way home for the holidays, the Capitals have finally returned home too! The team is back at Capital One Arena, this evening, after their four-game road trip. They are hosting the Chicago Blackhawks who are kicking off their own road trip and are hoping to extend their point streak to five games. Corey Crawford is expected to be in goal for the Hawks and currently holds a 3-4-2 career record with a 3.54 goals-against average and .884 save percentage against the Capitals.
Amazing news, we are back to regular puck drop at 7 PM. Watch the game on NBCS Washington and if you are with family and need to sneak away…you can stream the coverage on all of your devices beginning with the pregame at 6 PM. Tonight’s recap? You have Julia! That’s right, it’s Julia’s first recap and you will definitely want to stick around for it.

Barclay is the puppy for the St. Louis Blues and I feel like he’s been doing great. So, for all of you that might be stressed out with Thanksgiving or life in general, here are some highlights.

Also a great question:
can Barclay coach the blues?

I want to talk about the best Thanksgiving foods. I feel like we have definitely talked enough about the bad stuff, but it’s time to shine a light on the goodness. Here are my top three picks in no particular order.
Sweet potatoes/Mashed potatoes. I’ve come to the realization that a lot of you actually have one or the other and some of you have both of these. The potatoes are the best part whether you like them drenched in butter or topped with marshmallows.
The bread. I’m all about a bread basket, so it’s fairly obvious that I will go for any roll. It almost feels like a palate cleanser in between shoving your face with different sides.
Stuffing. I will fight anyone that hates stuffing.
No matter where you are for the holiday, please travel safe and eat plenty. Get that bread (literally).
