The Caps will host the Flames tonight, but the real story will be the Caps hosting the World Series Champion Washington Nationals. The Nats will be in the Capital One Arena crowd for Sunday’s game, so get ready for some celly.
Puck drop is at 7 PM. I’ve got recap duty.

I’ve resurrected the Sunday Snapshot series for 2019-20. The first installment came out today. Short version goes like this:

The United States won the Overwatch World Cup on Saturday night, first besting the powerhouse favorite South Korea team in the quarterfinals and then the Chinese team in the grand finals. Though San Francisco’s Sinatraa won the MVP award, the US got a great performance out of Washington’s damage player Corey (as well as Space, who was recently traded to LA Gladiators from the LA Valiant).
The US has had disappointing outings in the World Cup in recent years, but at least they didn’t get stomped like the Canadians did this year. That was a total disaster, with their star tank player xQc feeding nonstop.
This has been Peter’s Esports Corner. You are welcome.
