It’s the final game of the Capitals six-game homestand. They’ll hit the road for a tough six-game roadtrip after tonight, which is their longest of the season. But, for tonight, they’re still at home playing host to the LA Kings. Hopefully the boys can hit the road with a final win under their belt because, to be honest, they might really need it.
The game begins at 7 PM on NBCS Washington. It’s Monday, so you’re probably tired. If you need to go to bed and just stream the game on your devices, you can on the My Teams app. I’m your gal for the recap too. You can never get rid of me.

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good award show. But, I think it’s important to remember that you like what you like. Was the Scooby-Doo movie slammed by critics, but loved my millions? Yes, so who really cares about what “wins”. All that matters is that you like what you like. That being said…Brandi Carlile deserves everything. I saw her perform a few years ago and it straight up rocked me. Look up her performance from last night and listen to all her albums.
