Preview: Washington Capitals Vs Toronto Maple Leafs


The Caps travel to Toronto, Canada tonight trying to extend their win streak to four games versus the Maple Leafs.

Notes:

  • The Caps blew a 2-0 lead in Ottawa on Tuesday, but coach Adam Oates isn’t worried. “On the road, if you’re up 2-1 after two, you’re in a great position,” Oates told the Caps’ unofficial Poke Czech blog. “We were playing great hockey. They had one [scoring] chance, really. All game long they only had six [scoring] chances five-on-five, so we did a lot of good things. But at the same time Neuvirth played like shit and I made sure to give him 10 lashes after the game.”
  • Mike Ribeiro continues to tear it up and show @RMNB that they don’t know what they’re talking about on this subject (goal and 2 assists in last 3 games).
  • The Caps special teams still isn’t good enough. They have a 70% kill on and the PK and 16% on the Power Play. Opposing teams see this and aren’t afraid.

Prediction: Caps squeak out a win, 2-0 with an empty net goal.
