Canadiens Vs Capitals 1/24/13 Preview


  • The Caps swept the 4 game series last year.
  • The Caps PK continues to suck (58.3%). This needs to turn around for the Caps to win games.
  • The Habs defense and goaltending has been sharp this year. Only allowing 1.50 goals a game.
  • “What I showed the guys [from] the first period was zero system, had zero to do with it,” Oates said Wednesday after the team’s optional skate and video session. “It was our execution. If a guy’s wide open and we miss him with a pass, that’s not a system. So some of it, we have to accept responsibility that it’s us.”
  • Braden Holtby is sitting on the bench tonight after two terrible games. Michael Neuvirth finally gets to play his first game in DC since Marco Sturm had a seizure in front of the net and landed on Neuvirth.
  • Ovechkin continues to struggle from the right wing. I think he has a power play goal in him tonight though.
  • Mike Ribeiro has been the man for the Caps so far, 3 points in two games. The guy is pulling his weight.

Fan News: @TheHornGuy returns for his first home game on 2013. Let’s hope he doesn’t leave halfway to “hit the strip club early”.


Caps dominate with goals from Ovechkin, Chimera and Ribeiro to win 3-1. Neuvirth has a solid game with 30+ saves.
