For the Caps, the entire goal of this year is more or less to see how far they can take their roster before they have to make some painful changes, and of course, to see how far up the NHL Career goals list they can push Ovie up. It’s been a bit of a rough time for it however, since it seems like Ovie is the only player right now actually trying to shoot for the Caps; they’ve become an extremely uneven team where scoring comes in fits and starts like a temperamental engine coming to life. It’s led to them having an essentially .500 record, but a 2-game winning streak just after breaking a 2-game losing streak.
The Kraken meanwhile…need to get right. Currently on a 2-game losing streak, they’ve seen some brutal defensive and goaltending play over the past couple of days and they need to find a way to break that, and being on the road with a number of very tough games incoming, this is the one game where a team going through it could get momentum going in the right direction for Seattle.
Will the Kraken right the ship? or will they be Capped off by Ovechkin and his merry band of extras? We’ll find out at 4!
