The Capitals need this break. I need this break. We all need this break. This is your casual reminder that the boys will have the All-Star break and a bye week. We won’t see their sweet faces in a game for the next EIGHT DAYS. So, let’s root on the good boys one more time while they face off against the Maple Leafs up in Toronto.
Puck drop at 7:30PM and we expect each and every one of you to be watchin’. Tune in to NBCSWA, or you can stream the game live on the My Teams app. Want another recap from Peter? You GOT another recap from Peter!
|Shot Attempt %||51.6%||48.8%|

|Penalty Kill||81.7% (10th)||77.7% (23rd)|
But, on the Maple Leafs end, TSN Sports reporter Kristen Shilton let us know what morning skate looked like:

Maybe you haven’t been online yet to dig out what happened with the Oilers, but they fired Peter Chiarelli last night! Big deal! This was probably what stuck out most for me:
Peter Chiarelli was fired during the second intermission of last night’s game, according to Bob Nicholson. Wanted to give him a chance to leave the building quietly.

OOF. There were also some great twitter reactions.
