Well, I have some great news. We’re now on Snapchat. Let’s get weird, you guys.
The Capitals announced on Wednesday that they have acquired depth defenseman Tom Gilbert from the LA Kings for “future considerations.” Gilbert will report to the Hershey Bears. Sportsnet’s John Shannon was the first to report the news.
The Vancouver Canucks visited the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday for their second match-up of the season. Midway through the first period, Canucks forward/pest Alex Burrows got knocked down into the Sabres’ crease.
As he got up, Burrows decided to get physical with goaltender Sabres goalie Robin Lehner. And that’s when Burrows learned a valuable lesson: Don’t mess with another team’s goalie.
Brent Burns has been scoring in bunches no matter if he’s playing at home or on the road. Sunday, after scoring twice on Devils’ goaltender Cory Schneider in New Jersey, Burns tallied his 15th and 16th road goals of the 2016-17 season.
That now puts Burns one goal away from tying a former Capitals defenseman’s all-time road-goal record.
