The Capitals are up north to take on the Montreal Canadiens in their third preseason game. This game is special, as it’s being played at the Videotron Centre in Quebec City. The arena is built next to the Colisée Pepsi, where the Quebec Nordiques used to play.
This is the first preseason game for Alex Ovechkin, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Tom Wilson, Michal Kempny, and Brooks Orpik. Thursdays tilt also becomes the third game for Jayson Megna, who is battling for the open spot on the fourth line. Megna is the only player to suit up in all three preseason games.
