Welcome home, folks. We are so glad to have you back. To kick off their six-game homestand, the Capitals are hosting the Calgary Flames on Friday. The Flames are currently on a three-game winning streak and hold an 8-1-1 record in their last ten games. To be honest, I kinda forgot about the Flames, but I guess you could say they’re currently…on fire. I’m sorry.
The great return will begin at 7 PM on NCBSWashington. Don’t forget, you can always stream the game live on the My Teams app. The recap will be coming at you courtesy of Chris from the comments.
|Shot Attempt %||52.6%||48.8%|
|Power Play||23.6% (8th)||21.8% (10th)|
|Penalty Kill||79.0% (21st)||77.3% (25th)|
Casual reminder, once again, Alex Ovechkin will be serving his suspension this game for missing the All-Star extravaganza. TJ Oshie will be filling in at the Ovi spot. Isabelle from the Washington Post has us hooked up with the expected lineup:
Stephenson – Backstrom – Oshie
Vrana – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Jaskin – Eller – Connolly
Burakovsky – Dowd – DSP
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Niskanen
Orpik – Siegenthaler
