The Washington Capitals are taking on the Carolina Hurricanes for the first time this season. Puck drop is shortly after 1 pm, which we all know is just the greatest time for hockey to start. Sike.
Ilya Samsonov will get his third straight start, while Lars Eller makes his return to the lineup for the first time in two weeks. Dennis Cholowski will get a jersey again as Justin Schultz remains out with injury.
Let’s go Caps!
