The Capitals are back on the road and they’re headed up north to face off against the New York Islanders. The Islanders are coming off a 6-1 win against the Toronto Maple Leafs (not to mention an absurd meltdown). Hopefully, they’re still tired since the game was only 24 hours ago.
There is nothing more I want in this world than to have a nice cocktail and watch the Capitals win in Long Island. Say your prayers, light your candles, do your lucky dance, or whatever you need for the good ~vibes.
Puck drop is 7PM. Stream the game from your devices on the My Teams app. Christopher from the sweet, sweet comments will be your recapper for the evening.

The lines are the same. The Caps are winning, so they ain’t changing. People are still mad on twitter about Orpik. The expected lineup is all thanks to Isabelle at the Washington Post:
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Vrana – Backstrom – Oshie
Burakovsky – Eller – Connolly
Hagelin – Dowd – Boyd
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Niskanen
Orpik – Jensen
Look at these little Boston kids taking a note from the Bruins and dressing up like characters from Peaky Blinders for their game:

Personally, I think this is super cool because I literally JUST started Peaky Blinders and now I’m almost done. I can’t stop, it’s too good. Every time I have a glass of whiskey now I start to consider betting on horses and mention how I don’t want any trouble with the IRA.
Are you going to BE at the game this evening? Don’t forget to stop by and say hey to the good folks in the NYC Caps Crew (I am very sad that I cannot attend)! They’ll be tailgating, they’ll be loud, and they’ll be having a good time.
If you are going to the Islanders game tomorrow, let us know. We will be tailgating for at least three hours. Look for a creepy van and a lot of red. pic.twitter.com/cWdlgZKylK
