The Washington Capitals are facing off against the Arizona Coyotes at home this evening.
Puck drop will be right around 7PM and we only have one injury to report on for tonight.
Don’t look now, but the Washington Capitals are streaking. They’ll be playing to hopefully bring the streak to seven wins tonight when they face off against the Arizona Coyotes. The Capitals will officially welcome back Richard Panik to the lineup after missing ten games due to injury, just in time for him to face off against his former team. Guess you could say we no longer have a cause to panic! I would apologize for the puns, but it’s too easy. We’re all doing them, just get on board.
The puck will be dropping at 7PM and Peter will meet you back here for a recap.
Hockey Night In Canada analyst Don Cherry has been fired for the anti-immigrant comments he made Saturday.
The firing ends Cherry’s Coach’s Corner segment which has aired during Hockey Night In Canada for the last 35 years.
Days after giving his stick up to a boy celebrating his eighth birthday, Alex Ovechkin was back at it again to make some dreams come true.
Monday, after noticing a sign that said Hey, Ovi. Can I have a picture?, Ovechkin went to the glass and cheesed with a group of four Caps fans.
Yes, kids. Yes, you can.
Monday morning, the St. Louis Blues announced that they signed veteran forwards Troy Brouwer and Jamie McGinn to professional tryouts.
Brouwer has not played since being cut from Florida Panthers training camp in September. He’s remained in Calgary since then and has been skating with a junior hockey team.
The Washington Capitals play six games over the next nine days – one of the busiest stretches of the 2019-20 season.
Sunday, before things get insanely busy, the Ovechkins declared that it was a family day. Alex Ovechkin, Nastya Ovechkina, and son Sergei went to an indoor playground. Dmitry Orlov’s wife Varvara joined in along on the fun.
Richard Panik will draw back into the Capitals lineup Monday against the Arizona Coyotes. Before signing a four-year contract with the Capitals in July, Panik played two seasons with the Coyotes. He had 33 points in 75 games last year.
“I’m really excited,” Panik said after practice. “It’s been a long road but finally I’m 100 percent. I’m excited to jump on the running train.”
Panik, out injured since October 15 with an upper-body injury, began skating without a no-contact injury last Tuesday. To make room for Panik back on the roster, the Capitals optioned Travis Boyd and Tyler Lewington, who was put on waivers Sunday, down to the Hershey Bears.
Laurie Wood was a photographer for the Navy for 18 years. Later the Virginia Beach native became a sheriff’s deputy. While leading a training exercise for recruits in 2012, Wood tragically fell from a roof. Wood suffered a spinal cord injury and broke her back. She lost the use of her legs.
The fall didn’t keep Wood down for long. According to ABC 7 news, the Navy veteran became a sled hockey player and months later was playing for the Virginia Beach Hockey Club.
“Sled hockey pretty much saved my life,” Wood said to NBC4’s Aimee Cho. “It kind of let me know that I can still do the things that I used to do before my injury. I just do it a different way now.”
Saturday, Wood attended Capitals practice and was giving out USA Warrior branded hats and shirts to fans. Later, Wood got an emotional surprise herself.
