The Washington Capitals stay out west as they look to split their season series with the Arizona Coyotes in Glendale at good ole Gila River Arena. The Caps are riding a two game losing streak heading into Thursday night’s action and they have yet to lose three games in a row this season.
Puck drop is at 9 PM, which I think is even worse than a 10 PM start because at least with the latter you know you’re fully committing to a later work week night. Get your TVs and/or streaming devices tuned to NBCSWA to catch this bad boy live. Julia has graciously taken the recap for me tonight because my mouth is killing me from the dentist.

Pheonix Copley gets the nod in the cage, Tom Wilson is out injured, and Jonas Siegenthaler checks in for Madison Bowey. Here’s how that all shakes out via Isabelle with WaPo:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Burakovsky
Vrana – Kuznetsov – Connolly
Stephenson – Eller – DSP
Jaskin – Dowd – Boyd
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Niskanen
Siegenthaler – Djoos

The 2018 Game Awards are tonight and in honor of that lets discuss video games in 2018. Last year, believe it or not I picked Fortnite in this category when it was barely a fledgling battle royale game. I now hate Fortnite. Moving on, of course the big three names out there right now for “game of the year” are probably God of War by SIE Santa Monica Studio, Marvel’s Spider-Man by Insomniac Games, and Red Dead Redemption 2 by Rockstar Games. I’m going to deviate from those three with my choice and pick a game up for the “Best Direction” award in Detroit: Become Human by Quantic Dream.
Detroit is a PS4 exclusive that was released in very early summer 2018. The plot revolves around three separate androids and the player has to navigate all three through thousands upon thousands of dialog and action choices. I’m a huge fan of adventure games that involve human choice, but also make those choices have direct consequences in later gameplay. This is a game that is very easy to play till its completion as the story is engaging and ever evolving, plus you jump around from character to character so things never really get stale. I highly suggest a playthrough if you’re a fan of the choice-based adventure genre.
