The Capitals are still on the road, but this time it’s in New York. They’ll be facing off against the Islanders this evening before they head home and finally play in front of the Capital One Arena faithful. Reminder to everyone, it’s ON Long Island. Not IN Long Island. I think.
The boys are back on the east coast, so puck drop will be at the sweet 7PM EST spot. You can catch all the action on NBC Sports Washington and Christopher from the comments will have his first regular season recap this year. Expect some wrestling puns.

The Dallas Stars played the Boston Bruins last night and lost 2-1. The guest of the evening in Dallas was President George W. Bush (which felt weird, I anticipated a country music star like Nashville does but sure whatever). The only thing I wanted to note was that the jokes about the Stars not getting a “W” were out of control.

I know, it was a stretch. Every year when teams bring out their roster one by one during their home opener, I get so nervous that I’m going to have secondhand embarrassment watching a player fall on his face. Guess what? It happened! Lias Andersson tripped over a wire on the ice during the Rangers preseason player introductions on Thursday night.
Man oh, man. You gotta feel for Lias Andersson. Struggles in Year 1 and trips over the wire to begin Year 2.
