The Washington Capitals will play their next five games on the road, starting Sunday night with the Chicago Blackhawks, who, incidentally, suck.
Puck drops at 7 PM. I’ve got recap duty.
|Shot Attempt %||46.0%||54.5%|
|Power Play||23.1% (13th)||25.0% (10th)|
|Penalty Kill||70.6% (28th)||83.3% (11th)|
No morning skate today. I don’t expect any changes. Braden gets another start.
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Oshie
Hagelin – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Vrana – Eller – Hathaway
Leipsic – Dowd – Stephenson
Siegenthaler – Carlson
Orlov – Jensen
Kempny – Gudas
The first twenty games of a season are weird. You can’t really trust the data you have so far; it’s too easy to think you’re seeing a team when really you’re just seeing the amalgamation of their opponents, warped by a small sample. That’s why I’m not drawing real conclusions yet, but all signs are pointing to the Caps being a very different kind of team in 2019-20. I just don’t know if it’s different in a good way or not.
