The Caps are tearing through the league at the moment and their next bullseye has landed firmly on the Anaheim Ducks. This is the first matchup since the infamous spitting incident so expect some hockey guys to do some dumb hockey things tonight.
Tom Wilson says he’ll be “ready for whatever” and Garnet Hathaway says that “we’ll see how the game goes”.
Another 10PM eastern start for us all and caffeinated Chris will be back for your recap.
|Shot Attempt %||47.4%||51.5%|
|Power Play||11.3% (29th)||24.2% (5th)|
|Penalty Kill||77.2% (22nd)||83.5% (12th)|
No changes other than netminders as it looks like Nick Backstrom will miss his eighth straight game in a row (via Samantha Pell):
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Vrana – Eller – Oshie
Hagelin – Boyd – Panik
Leipsic – Dowd – Hathaway
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Jensen
Siegenthaler – Gudas
My other favorite Western Conference team (the Avs are the other) are on top of their division for the first time this late in a season since they moved to Arizona.
For the first time since moving to Arizona, the #Yotes are in 1st place in their division at the 30-game mark.
