The Washington Capitals and New York Islanders will meet for the first time since the 28th of January. Two of the NHL’s hottest teams doing battle for the top stop in the East Division. Spicy.
Puck drop is at your usual 7 PM, and Peter will have your recap coming off his successful Vitek Vanecek shutout prediction.
|Shot Attempt %||51.3%||50.0%|
The Caps played last night and it went pretty well so we can assume they roll with this lineup again but add Ilya Samsonov.
Ovechkin – Backstrom – Oshie
Vrana – Kuznetsov – Sprong
Sheary – Panik
Hagelin – Dowd – Hathaway
Dillon – Carlson
Orlov – Schultz
Chara – Jensen
Legend: 🌮 = win; 🚽 = loss; 🤷 = OTL; 😷 = postponed
#MNWild coach Dean Evason out of context: "You’re not going to be banging each other down low when you banged the night before and you’re about to get hammered the next night."

Who do you have winning the whole thing? Who are your non-trendy upset picks? Hockey and college basketball, what a perfect match.
