Saturday night, the Washington Capitals get their third shot this season at the juggernaut that is the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Caps will not only look to take down the Lightning for the first time this season, but also extend their winning streak to four games and get Alex Ovechkin his 50th goal
Tonight’s game begins at 7 PM. If you’re out and about, you can stream the game on your phone and stuff from the My Teams app. Peter’s got recap duty.

Brett Connolly is the latest victim of the sickness going around the locker room. He is a game-time decision and this is what the Caps will look like if he cannot go (via Isabelle):
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Wilson
Vrana – Kuznetsov – Oshie
Hagelin – Eller – Burakovsky
Stephenson – Dowd – Boyd
Djoos – Carlson
Orlov – Niskanen
Orpik – Jensen
What a story in STL. The Blues were dead last in the NHL on Jan. 3 — and are in the playoffs. As far as I can tell, that's the latest anyone's been last overall and made the postseason since the 1997 Ottawa Senators (Jan. 26).
