The Washington Capitals will face the Montreal Canadiens for the second time this season. Last time we met T.J. Oshie earned himself two goals and helped bring the Caps a win. The Capitals are in a six-game winning streak and will be looking to secure their lead quickly.
The team returned to the ice at Kettler Iceplex this morning after a four day winter break. They received an extra day above the NHL-mandated three days, probably for good behavior! Not only did the players look happy to be on the ice the rink was packed with cheering spectators.
Outside the rink, fans stood for over an hour to get shots of their favorite players (more on that later).
Check out our post from this morning to read more about the Canadiens. (The Canadiens are Coming)
What to Watch for Tonight
Line-up looks to be the same:
8-19-77, 90-92-14, 25-83-43, 21-46-65
We need to see some activity from Andre Burakovsky and Brooks Laich. Burkie has one assist in five games while Brooks is 0 for 5.
Jason Chimera is one goal away from joining five other players on the team with 10 or more goals.
T.J.Oshie and Alex Ovechkin: Who will finally bring us a hat trick???
Ovechkin is eight goals away from 500 NHL career goals.
