The Caps have hit the road again and are down in Florida to take on the Panthers. The Capitals will be facing off against their former teammate Brett Connolly and there is a high chance of my emotions getting the best of me.
Puck drop is at 7 PM. Your recap will come from Julia!
|Shot Attempt %||52.8%||51.7%|
|Power Play||21.9% (10th)||25.9% (5th)|
|Penalty Kill||86.1% (8th)||86.2% (7th)|
Coach Reirden confirmed that Nic Dowd will be out this evening. Dowd will take the ice for warm ups, but isn’t quite ready yet for a return:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Oshie
Vrana – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Hagelin – Eller – Hathaway
Leipsic – Stephenson – Boyd
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Gudas
Siegenthaler – Jensen
The NHL tweeted out a graphic recently about the race for the Richard Trophy this season. I’d like to personally thank the graphics and social media folks for the Alex Ovechkin photo choice.
The RACE for the Richard Trophy is on! 🏁

According to The Athletic, now that players in the NHL are making more money, players have started to shift from enjoying a Bud Light to a nice Cabernet. Bruins forward David Pastrnak also mentioned that the switch to wine is because it’s less “fatter” and in the summer, it doesn’t feel as heavy.
I actually really love this story. Just a bunch of dudes geeking out about wine. Heck yeah.
How the hockey culture shifted from beer to wine. https://t.co/48JK0XpHsT
