Today the Washington Capitals will end a short homestand and start the overrated month of December with a matinee game against the Anaheim Ducks, whose goalie John Gibson is singlehandedly keeping the team from suffering the same fate as the rest of the Pacific Division. The Caps will try to record their great eighth win in a row off ’em.
The puck will drop at 3 PM. Attune your set to NBCSWA or stream it using this here link. Recap services will be furnished by Elyse.

An early game, so there’s no morning skate. Since Wilson ain’t suspended, I’m just gonna assume it’s the same lines as vs NJD, which looked a little something like this:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Wilson
Vrana – Kuznetsov – Connolly
Burakovsky – Eller – DSP
Stephenson – Dowd – Jaskin
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Niskanen
Djoos – Bowey
I’m 30-something-years-old and I cook a lot, but I’ve never made meatballs. Today that all changes, except the 30-something-year-old part, which will mostly stay the same. I’m going to make Aileen a pasta dinner with homemade pasta, homemade red sauce, and some meatballs. Got any advice for me?
I’ll try to keep the recipe pretty simple: a few ground meats with high fat content, some chopped garlic, panko, eggs, pecorino cheese. I’m gonna brown them in the sauce pan and use the fond to make my sauce, which will be mostly more garlic, onions, and carrots, and san marzano tomatoes. I’ll add the browned balls to the sauce and let ’em mingle for an hour on low.
But this is my first time, so I’m open to new ideas. Please and thank you.
CAPS TODAY: Braden Holtby is expected to start against the Ducks, and, should he record eight saves, he'll become the second player in franchise history to record 10,000 saves. More info on him and the Caps at https://t.co/HecIC0ECg1 pic.twitter.com/UTEyVfNnM1

Welcome to the final month of the year. RMNB pregamers often use this space to share their faves of the year, and I’ll get us started with my favorite album, Soccer Mommy’s Clean. Nashville native Sophie Allison’s chops as a songwriter are clear from the opener, “Still Clean.” Allison is wry and startlingly sincere all at once, like Joni Mitchell was at her best. But the arrangements are thoughtful and powerful too, especially in album centerpiece “Scorpio Rising,” which is haunting in the way only the best music can be.
