Tonight the Caps are facing the St. Louis Blues, who are looking pretty great.
The Blues are neck-in-neck with Capitals in the NHL standings, and are trying to extend a hot streak. They’re coming off of a win over the Boston Bruins last night, so the Capitals are (hopefully) going to look like the more energized team. But check out this stat. In their past eight back-to-back series games, the Blues have won a ridiculous seven of eight. The Blues are also 4-1 in their last five road games, so being in the Verizon Center tonight might not phase them much. Are the Capitals the better team? Skill-wise, probably, but this is going to be a tough game.
Puck drop is at 7:00pm on CSN, folks. Buckle up.
