It’s happening. The Capitals are streaking. Fresh off their third win in a row, the Caps have traveled to Boston to face off against the Bruins. Big headline of the day is that this Zdeno Chara‘s first game in Boston since he left the Bruins after 14 seasons. But, Chara has made it very clear that his focus is not on his big return to Boston. It’s on getting another win with the Capitals and seeing his family.
We’re back to the usual 7 PM puck drop and Peter Hassett will hit ya with a recap after the game.

I sat down the other day and watched all of “Ted Lasso”. It’s super wholesome, ten episodes, and each episode is 30 minutes. You can find it on AppleTV+, but I did what every sensible person is doing. Which is signed up for a free trial, binged the show, and immediately cancelled. Consider watching if you want to feel good!
