The Washington Capitals have traveled to Canada’s capital city to do battle with one of the league’s basement dwellers in the Ottawa Senators. The Caps did not play well whatsoever at home against Nashville on Wednesday, so this is a great opportunity to “be better”.
Puck drop is at 7:30 PM again and I will be back with another of my trademark scatterbrained recaps.
|Shot Attempt %||46.2%||52.5%|
|Power Play||14.4% (31st)||20.5% (12th)|
|Penalty Kill||81.0% (15th)||84.3% (2nd)|
No changes in the forward lines, but we do have a new goaltender:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Wilson
Vrana – Kuznetsov – Oshie
Hagelin – Eller – Panik
Leipsic – Dowd – Hathaway
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Jensen
Siegenthaler – Gudas

Here he is dissecting Lonzo Ball’s early jump shot issues.
