The Capitals are still in North Carolina and will be facing off against the Hurricanes for Game Four. To be honest, I almost wanted to write Game Three because I blocked the actual Game Three out of my mind. We’re brushing it off, we’re moving on.
If the Capitals want to avoid the Canes tying this series up, they will need to do literally everything completely opposite from Monday night. The atmosphere is going to be electric again and the Capitals need to be smarter.
Puck drop is at 7 PM, and you can stream the game using the My Teams app. Recap duty will be brought to you by *drum roll* Chris Cerullo! We’re switchin’ it up for y’all, gotta stay on your toes.

The official Selke Trophy nominees were announced yesterday. Listed are Mark Stone, Patrice Bergeron, and Ryan O’Reilly. Kind of surprised not to see Sidney Crosby there and there was a lot of chatter why Aleksander Barkov wasn’t nominated too. What do you think?
