Preview: Washington Capitals vs Detroit RedWings 3/19/2012


Tonight Detroit has a chance to avenge a terrible defeat in DC earlier this season which resulted in 7-1 Caps win. It isn’t clear whether Braden Holtby or Michael Neuvirth will start (hopefully the latter but they both suck). “You know, I want to start every game and spot the other team an early lead. I want to create tough adversity for this team so they will be ready when I play bad in the playoffs” Michael Neuvirth told reporters. The Caps best player and Czech rockstar, Tomas Vokoun is still recovering from a groin injury. “I just want to make sure that I take 3 steps back and half a step forward. Being injured is fun because I don’t have to play and I can drink on the bench” Vokoun told reporters gathering at his condominium in Arlington, Va.

The Caps are only averaging 3 Power plays per game, tonight’s game in Detroit could be brutal if everything goes wrong. Detroit is 28-4-2 at home this season and the locals “don’t take kindly to people from DC around there”.

Predictions:

  • At least 5 turnovers in caps zone made by defensemen John Carlson and Dmitry Orlov.
  • Jimmy Howard will play really well. Caps goaltender won’t.
  • Ovechkin will score a goal but turn the puck over so much that no one will care.
  • Caps will make a comeback before falling in OT 3-2.
