The Washington Capitals are back home and finally ready to play some hockey in the District…of Champions. This will be the first major DC sporting event played after the Washington Nationals captured their first World Series title. Expect a lively arena.
Puck drop is at 7PM tonight and Peter graciously took the recap for me so I could attend this one in person.
|Shot Attempt %||47.8%||50.3%|
|Power Play||29.8% (2nd)||25.5% (5th)|
|Penalty Kill||79.5% (20th)||85.2% (6th)|
Nic Dowd is out day-to-day. Tonight’s probable lineup comes from the Washington Post’s Samantha Pell:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Oshie
Vrana – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Hagelin – Eller – Hathaway
Leipsic – Stephenson – Boyd
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Gudas
Siegenthaler – Jensen
D.C., this one's for you.
