No big write up for this game, just small tidbits. The Capitals are coming of a 1-2-0 road trip, their win coming in a 6-5 offensive clinic with the Dallas Stars. They now return home to face the Predators Tuesday, and then having four days off before their next game against Buffalo Saturday.
This game will not be televised as Versus has the feed, and are instead airing the Philadelphia at Atlanta game.
Alexander Ovechkin will be out of Washington's line-up until Sunday as he has returned to Moscow to be with his ailing grandfather.
Caps fans thoughts and prayers go out to the Ovechkin family.
