The Capitals continue their long homestand while playing host to the Vancouver Canucks this evening. The Capitals have won seven out of their last ten games against the Canucks, so here’s hoping they can keep the positive edge going. The biggest thing to expect is a good emotional moment over Jay Beagle being back at Capital One Arena.
Get some snacks, curl up, the puck will be droppin’ around 7PM. If you need to go away and stream instead, you can! The game will be live on the My Teams app. Pete has your recap.

|Power Play||16.9% (22nd)||21.4% (12th)|
|Penalty Kill||79.3% (19th)||77.9% (24th)|
Ain’t no skate like an optional skate! Isabelle from the Washington Post has a few notes for us including Lars Eller was on the ice for practice and our indie darling, Braden Holtby will be in net.

It’s #JayDay, or the return of our beloved baby boy Jay Beagle. If you’re going to the game, don’t forget to print out a few thousand signs for the big celebration.
For those of you keepin’ an eye on what’s going on around the league, Auston Matthews just agreed to terms with the Toronto Maple Leafs. It’s a five-year contract extension at an 11.634 AAV. I love some good memes after a deal goes through, so please join in if you see any others worth mentioning.
