The Capitals have hit the road and are in Colorado to face off against the Avalanche. The Capitals will be without Evgeny Kuznetsov due to injury and the Avalanche will be without Nazem Kadri who is out indefinitely with a lower-body injury.
The game is going to be a national broadcast because people want to see Alex Ovechkin get to 700 goals. I keep having this theory that he will hit it the moment we all stop talking about it. The pressure is too much, probably not for him but mainly for me.
Puck drop is at 9:30 PM, please hang out with us.

As mentioned above, Kuzy is out for this game with an injury. The good news is that he did take the ice this morning and it looks like things are getting better! Braden Holtby will be in net. Thanks as usual to Samantha Pell at the Washington Post for providing the lines:
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Wilson
Vrana – Eller – Oshie
Hagelin – Boyd – Panik
Leipsic – Dowd – Hathaway
Kempny – Carlson
Orlov – Jensen

The Houston Astros are really bad at apologizing. Here is your reminder that when the moment comes for you to apologize, just do it. Own up.

I will personally be going away for the long weekend with pals, but if you’re celebrating with some candy, I wanted to kick off the holiday with a little chaos. We’re talking about the Worst Valentine’s Day candy you can buy:
