What to Watch for Tonight: #CapsLeafs

orlovThe Russian Troyka: Ovechkin, Orlov, & Kuznetsov. Who scores first and who has the most points by the end of the night??

Game time is 7 pm From Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Braden Holtby is at one end; Jonathan Bernier at the other. Bernier is hoping to get his first point in the win column tonight. He is in for Leaf’s number one goalie James Reimer who is out with a lower-body injury.

The Leafs will need to defend against their old nemesis Alexander Ovechkin and the new brut force the Caps have unleashed in two other Russians: Evegeny Kuznetsov and Dmitry Orlov. In the meantime, the lower two lines are showing that they too pose a threat to opposing teams. Keep a watch on these guys.

 Who to Watch:

Joffrey Lupul who has registered 22 points in 20 games against the Caps. 

Can Dmitry Orlov extend his scoring streak?

Can the Caps make it five in a row and take their first win for this  road series?

Caps Daily Glass Bump: Nov 28, 2015

The Caps took an optional skate this morning at Air Canada Centre in Toronto in prep for a 7 pm game against the Leafs. They are there and we are here…so we give you some shots from previous practices to tide you over.

Tidbit for Tonight

The Leafs have a pretty incredible PK streak going. They haven’t let the opponent score on the PP in five games. They currently rank fifth in home powerplay percentages and have successfully held back the Caps in the past. Let’s hope we are ready for their defense should we pull in a PP.

Toronto Press has pegged hometown boy Tom Wilson as an “enforcer” and the “best agitator” in the NHL. All this to mean that Tom will have to watch his back as the Leafs are likely to try and draw him into some fights to get him off the ice tonight. Not that he doesn’t already have a target on his back!
