Time to brush off the shootout loss to the Lightning, the Capitals are facing the Philadelphia Flyers in another round-robin matchup.
The Capitals have John Carlson down as a game-time decision, due to his injury from the exhibition game, and they will also be without Lars Eller. But don’t worry about Eller, it’s because he’s gonna be a papa again! Eller left the bubble, so Travis Boyd will be taking his spot. Wishing the Eller family all the best on the delivery of their new tiger cub.
The puck drops at 4 PM and Peter will meet you back here for another impeccable recap.
|Shot Attempt %||51.1%||51.8%|
|Power Play||20.8% (14th)||19.4% (17th)|
|Penalty Kill||81.8% (11th)||82.6% (6th)|
As mentioned above, Lars Eller will be out because of baby reasons. Travis Boyd is in. John Carlson will be a game-time decision:
Ovechkin – Kuznetsov – Wilson
Vrana – Backstrom – Oshie
Hagelin – Boyd – Kovalchuk
Panik – Dowd – Hathaway
Dillon – Orlov
Kempny – Gudas
Siegenthaler – Jensen
The Dallas Stars last won a game on February 25th. That was the day that I had come home from a fantastic birthday weekend with my best pals and also started a brand new job. Twitter user Alyssa Turner couldn’t have put it better.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m having a rough time. I can’t focus, I am always tired, I’m overwhelmed by little tasks, etc. Just feeling incredibly heavy things and I know that I need to take some work time off to reset, but it’s hard to do that when you’re not going anywhere. I know I’m not alone in this, a ton of you probably feel exactly the same.
SO, how do I try and get myself outta these weird funks? Sometimes it’s movement, it’s reading, it’s taking a day off, or it’s just laying on the floor and staring at the ceiling. It’s also sometimes just revisiting my favorite videos and I thought I’d share a couple with you guys. If you need more, tell me. I’d also love to hear how YOU get yourself out of funks.
