The Capitals have traveled to the other side of the state of Pennsylvania, where they will be facing off against the Philadelphia Flyers.
This will be the penultimate time these two teams face each other in the regular season. There is one more game between the two on March 24th, but the final game is in DC. So, I’m hoping for some quality Gritty content this evening.
There is a 7PM puck drop and you can stream the game live from any of your devices on the My Teams App. After racing home from my final meeting, I will have your recap.
|Shot Attempt %||48.5%||49.7%|
|Power Play||17.1% (22nd)||22.1% (9th)|
|Penalty Kill||77.9% (26th)||79.1% (23rd)|
Thanks as ALWAYS to Isabelle at the Washington Post for the expected lines. Quick switch, Chandler Stephenson in for Nic Dowd. People are still screaming in Izzy’s mentions about Christian Djoos like she is the one who makes the decision. God bless her:
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Vrana – Backstrom – Oshie
Hagelin – Eller – Connolly
Burakovsky – Stephenson – Boyd
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Niskanen
Orpik – Jensen
Small, baby, casual reminder that Alex Ovechkin remains the greatest.
The @EdmontonOilers captain also became the 19th player in NHL history to reach 100 points in three or more consecutive seasons.

I mean, I’m not one to make grand observations off one photo on twitter….but it looks like the Gritty candles are going faster and I hope they sell out. Then the Bryce Harper ones are just there. Sad and lonely. For thirteen years.
