The Washington Capitals have the opportunity to immediately bounce back from their very poor showing against the St. Louis Blues on Thursday Night. That opportunity comes against the Dallas Stars, who the Caps have not beat in regulation, in Dallas since October 17, 1995.
We have another 8 PM start on our hands and you can catch tonight’s game on NBCSWA+ as superstar Sam Dekker and the Wizards have the Heat in Miami tonight on the main channel. As always you can stream all of their pregame, in-game, and postgame coverage via the My Teams app on all of your usual streaming devices. I will have your recap.
|Shot Attempt %||46.9%||49.2%|
|Power Play||20.9% (14th)||22.7% (10th)|
|Penalty Kill||82.5% (9th)||76.9% (25th)|
All we really know is that Pheonix Copley is for sure going to be in net tonight. I would expect Jonas Siegenthaler to get back in as well and a change or two to the fourth line. Here’s how they lined up last night (Copley in for Holtby):
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Vrana – Backstrom – Oshie
Burakovsky – Eller – Connolly
Stephenson – Dowd – Jaskin
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Niskanen
Orpik – Bowey
The Stars will be without their captain and third leading scorer tonight due to this hit from Miles Wood.
