The Capitals are home hosting a fellow Eastern Conference squad this evening, the Toronto Maple Leafs! There’s a change in goal for the Caps, Ilya Samsonov will replace Braden Holtby in net, forcing some to think about the potential for goalie drama (which in MY opinion….is entirely too early). Hopefully, the Capitals can capitalize (sorry) on the Leafs being a little tired since they played last night at home against the Wild and won 4-2.
Puck drop will be at a normal 7PM EST, thank the Lord. Watch on NBC Sports Washington and Peter is back with the recap.
|Shot Attempt %||56.2%||54.7%|
|Power Play||28.0% (8th)||22.2% (16th)|
|Penalty Kill||81.0% (16th)||84.0% (10th)|
Shout out to Samantha Pell at the Washington Post for hookin’ us up with the lines:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Oshie
Hagelin – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Vrana – Eller – Hathaway
Leipsic – Stephenson – Panik
Siegenthaler – Carlson
Orlov – Gudas
Jensen – Lewington
The dog is only getting cuter. I’d be remiss to not share his latest picture for tonight’s game.

The Nationals have a baby on the team. Juan Soto is 20 years old, so he’s not quite able to responsibly drink with his teammates. The GOOD news is that his birthday is October 25th. Just in time for potentially more celebrations. Someone in the Nationals organization…please keep an eye out for this sweet boy.
Juan Soto: responsible young adult
