I have a feeling they'll build on probably their best 55 minutes of hockey this season in Nashville.
I'm hoping for this but knowing this team they will go the opposite direction. They'll start off extremely sloppy, play bad for the entire 1st period. Go down by a couple of goals. Play better in the 2nd and try to rally back in the 3rd.
This right here is why most winnipeggers are so happy to have the NHL back! Our Jets host the Washington Capitals!!! We are the most penalized team in the NHL right now, if that trend continues you will hammer us! Hoping for a good game and good luck guys! Feel free to stop by our GDT anytime!!!
Anyone know if Lucien Dublois is in tonight? Seems like its been longer than 15 years since our last visit. I hope Ovi puts on a show, as the good fans there have waited long enough to get a first hand look.
Never thought in a million years I'd see my favorite team play my hometown Jets. Still pulling for the Caps. Wouldn't mind the Russian duo of Ovie and Semin put on a show. I won't hold my breath though.
George McPhee....The Teflon GM. 15 years of failure and counting....
6 - Number of playoff series the Capitals have won since George McPhee took over as General Manager in 1997 (which makes him the third-longest-tenured GM in the League), three of which came in McPhee's first season on the job.
