Okay, I’ve got good news. Yeah, yeah, the Capitals are playing like irradiated toilet trash lately and Alex Ovechkin has decided to stay at 699 goals forever because he says it is “nice”, but today the Washington Capitals will play a team so bad that they might win without actually playing any better.
The New Jersey Devils are hosting the boys today at 1 PM. My favorite friend, Chris Cerullo, has the recap.
|Shot Attempt %||45.8%||51.8%|
|Power Play||15.8% (27th)||20.6% (14th)|
|Penalty Kill||81.4% (13th)||84.0% (4th)|
A bunch of little changes from yesterday’s practice.
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Vrana – Backstrom – Oshie
Hagelin – Eller – Panik
Leipsic – Dowd – Hathaway
Dillon – Carlson
Kempny – Orlov
Siegenthaler – Jensen
Our friends at PQST are hosting a fancy clothes soiree today. It’s called #CapsProm2020. If you’re in the hood, go and send us pics. Have fun everyone!

The Overwatch League makes its DC debut today at The Anthem as the Washington Justice host the weekend’s games. I’m pretty excited to see how the crowd reacts and what the turnout is. I’d have been there myself if not for a bunch of conflicts.

NYXL should cruise through the weekend with two easy games, but I’m thinking Outlaws will get their first W of the season against Boston today. Justice might be able to sweep their homestand; Paris is unproven, and Spitfire looked a bit of a mess in their opening games. I’m just bummed I’ll miss Kariv and Agilities (late of LA Valiant) playing in DC for the first time, as I’ll be covering tomorrow’s Caps-Pens game.
