Hard to get excited about this one. My predictions:
- Konopka beats up a Cap.
- Brads jumps Konopka from the stands. Then bleeds on him.
- Fehr breaks his other collarbone via Twitter.
- Steckel scores hat trick and accidentally pummels the Zamboni guy.
I'm changing my prediction. 4-2 Capitals with an ENG by.... Holtby.
Seriously though, Holtby should be fine. I predict one or two gaffes (might not lead to goals), but a solid game otherwise and some sweek puckhandling.
Worst case scenario is that Steckel injures Holtby.
In a huge twist, Steckel will find a way to blindside hit himself in the head, knocking him out for the season. He will receive universal praise for taking out one of the game's dirtiest cheapshot artists.
