Tonight the Washington Capitals will play the Buffalo Sabres for the first time this season. Last time we saw the Sabres they were toilet tier, tanking for the number-one pick in the draft, which they won. Now with Rasmus Dahlin in addition to Jack Eichel and Jeff Skinner (picked up from the Canes), the Sabres all of a sudden look daunting. Their record is virtually equal to the Caps, and they recently recorded a ten-game win streak. Even for a unrested Caps team, this could be a fun game, if only because Ovechkin will be on ice.
Puck drop in DC is at 7:00 PM and you can watch on NBCSWA on television or from your preferred gadget. The divine Elyse will have your recap.

The Caps played last night, and morning skate was optional today. I imagine lines will be very similar to Friday night’s, so instead here’s a video of a baby polar bear at the Berlin Zoo.
The Buffalo Sabres today announced that forward Patrik Berglund has been suspended indefinitely by the organization due to failure to report to the team. There will be no further information or comment at this time.

I had to change my podcast diet this year. Out were some current events/politics podcasts, which kinda feel tedious to me now. But staying in my feed has been Episode One. E1 is comedy podcast in which the creators imagine themselves as podcast archivists, collecting disparate failed, one-episode podcasts that would otherwise be lost to time. Each episode is different but they all tend to discuss important cultural touchstones like orcs, deagles, Joe Rogan, pig bellies, Soundcloud rappers, war crimes, and whether or not a bag of chips can constitute dinner. It is the single dumbest thing I have ever listened to, and I never miss an episode. (NSFW)
