The Caps and Blue Jackets played on Tuesday in Columbus. In a weird scheduling quirk, they are playing again 72 hours later in DC with neither team having played in between. Bring your ponchos because we’re on the back nine of a week of Torts hockey.
Not to be confused with Torts hockey is the return of Trotz hockey. That is, Capitals head coach Barry Trotz has removed young and talented but underachieving Andre Burakovsky from the lineup in favor of an inferior hockey player named Alex Chiasson.
The game starts at 7 PM on NBCSW. Outstanding human being Peter will have your recap.
