Senators @ Capitals, 4.25.13, 7:00 EST, Verizon Center

Per Katie, Neuvirth starting and Ward skating but won't play tonight. Possible return vs Boston which is good news. Line-up and scratches remain the same from Tuesday.

First game in a while I'll be watching stress free. I'd like to see the guys come out flying and carry the momentum, but won't be surprised if they put up a stinker.

Edit: Erik Karlsson returning for the Senators tonight just 10 weeks after tearing his Achilles Tendon. Pretty remarkable.

Would prefer a win here so as to not play OTT in round 1, but we'll see.

Same lineup tonight means no one is really knicked up, outside of what we already knew (Laich and Ward), because anyone who was sub-optimal would be rested tonight.

I'd favor sitting Nicky and Green against the Bruins on Saturday - two injury-prone guys that we can't afford to be without.

We are resting Holtby. I'd prefer we beat you tonight to keep you guys out of 6th. Still hoping the Leafs fall to that spot.

Roll 4 lines and try to pad Ovie's stats.

I was at the last game in Ottawa, Holtby was outstanding. In the 2nd period we were calling for him to be the 2nd star.

Yep, minus that terrible turnover that gave you your second goal. Holtby is either Holtbeast or Loltby, but that's to be expected with someone in his 1st full season as a #1. You guys pretty much dominated the last game so I'm hoping our guys can put up a better fight this time.

OT: Alex Semin out final two games with a concussion. In 44 GP, he had 13 G and 31 A for 44 PTS.

Pretty good year but in the end the Caps made the right decision.

I'd still like to see them win out the season against two playoff teams if for no other reason than to just keep the pedal down and set the tone for the playoffs.

Absolutely. St. Louis killed it last night, plus he has two more games to play.

I want the Caps to win because our last game against Ott was so horrible.

The next year or two will be telling for him. He got paid, now let's see how serious he stays.

This one worked out best for all parties IMO. Happy for him.

Any restrictions on bringing signs to the game?

Sign-holders are worse than leaners (if they're older than 8).

Please do this, if anything for your Southeast division brothers the Jets!!! One last time, help us out

Cheers guys, it's been a fun run.

I doubt they'll allow a pro-Senators sign to remain visible for very long.

I actually had a guy try to tell me to sit down during the player introductions last game.

So long as you're a practitioner of the 'puck-in-play' rule, you can stand or lean as much as you want.
