In the penultimate game for the month of January, the Capitals are at home to host the Nashville Predators (side bar, I feel like January has been 600 years long). The Caps are on a four-game winning streak and the Preds are currently last in the Central Division. The Preds need this win, but I would also love to continue a winning streak. I’m not biased at all.
Puck drop is at 7:30 PM, just enough to throw you off a little bit. Recap will be provided by our shining star, Christopher.
|Shot Attempt %||52.1%||52.5%|
|Power Play||16.8% (24th)||20.5% (13th)|
|Penalty Kill||74.0% (28th)||84.5% (2nd)|
Ovi is obviously back in the lineup after serving his suspension and Braden Holtby gets the start once again. The rest of this should look pretty familiar:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Wilson
Vrana – Kuznetsov – Oshie
Hagelin – Eller – Panik
Leipsic – Dowd – Hathaway
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Jensen
Siegenthaler – Gudas
This overtime winner from Jamie Benn was incredibly satisfying.

Netflix recently dropped a new docuseries called “Cheer”. It follows the competitive cheerleading team at Navarro College in Corsicana, TX while they gear up to try and win another National Championship. There are only six episodes, but it is a total whirlwind. You learn about their coach, the lives of these kids, how the Championship pans out, and what some of them are up to next. Netflix is insane, getting me to care so much about this team, but here we are. Give it a try.
