The Capitals are still on the road and are making a stop in Columbus to face off against the Blue Jackets. If this feels familiar, it’s because this matchup literally just happened last week. The last game between these two ended up with a 5-2 Jackets win, snapping the Capitals’ six game win streak. Here’s hoping for another road win for the Capitals and the beginning of a new streak!
We’re stickin’ with the usual 7PM puck drop and Peter will have your recap.

Thanks to Samantha Pell at the Washington Post for the lines! Travis Boyd is back in for Nic Dowd because of the Dads trip:

Hagelin – Eller – Panik
Leipsic – Boyd – Hathaway
Kempny – Carlson

He looks so soft, it makes me want to CRY.

I read a bunch this year, but it’s never as much as I really wanted. Looking forward to setting a bigger goal for next year and start using my Goodreads account more often. At any rate, here are some of my favorite things I read this year. Always taking suggestions!
I’m mainly using this section as an excuse to give my favorite author a shout out. Happy Birthday, Jane Austen!
