After their mighty beatdown of the Penguins, the Caps continue their homestand against the Detroit Red Wings. It’s unlikely that we’ll see a repeat of Wednesday night’s 7-1 demolition, but the Caps aren’t exactly facing tough competition in Detroit.
Mike Green and Co. are next-to-last in their division and have dismal possession numbers (the Caps are tied for the best score-adjusted possession team.) The Red Wings have also lost center Darren Helm to a shoulder injury. Suffice to say, things could be better in Motown. Tonight, the Caps have the opportunity to bag (what should be) two easy points and have some fun while doing so.
Puck drop at 7 PM on CSN-DC.
