We made it! It’s the final game for the year of 2019 and the Capitals are home hosting and early showdown against the New York Islanders.
If any of you are going out tonight, do not drink and drive. I don’t have any power to ban you from everything, but I will ban you from my life. Be safe and have fun! If you’re not going out, I hope you get some good rest or get to watch something good on TV.
Game starts at 1 PM, and Good Tweet Pete will have your recap.
|Shot Attempt %||46.8%||52.1%|
|Power Play||20.4% (12th)||21.6% (11th)|
|Penalty Kill||80.5% (17th)||84.7% (2nd)|
Thanks to Samantha Pell from the Washington Post for the Caps practice lines from yesterday. We’ve got some folks that are sick (Oshie, Kempny, and myself), some that are injured (Djoos and Wilson). Coach Reirden said he hasn’t decided on a starting goaltender yet:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Wilson
Vrana – Kuznetsov – Panik
Hagelin – Eller – Boyd
Leipsic – Dowd – Hathaway
Siegenthaler – Carlson
Orlov – Jensen
Djoos – Gudas
Kids these days.

I listed my favorite reads and shows from 2019, but I don’t have any cool favorite games like Chris and Peter. So, instead, these are some of my favorite things I ate in 2019:
