Capital Show: Saturday Open Thread

The one on the right is more likely to wilt under the spotlight than the one on the left.

Once again it's Graham filling in for JJ, who apparently can't hack having 2 daughters now. I'm kidding of course; he could barely handle 1 daughter.

Only one game on the schedule today, and it's an early one, so I hope you have the coffee ready.

New York Rangers (1) vs Washington Capitals (7): 12:30 ET - NBC

The last time these two met they nearly played the equivalent of 2 full games before Marion Gaborik decided it was time to actually, you know, show up and score goals like he's paid to. Henrik Lundqvist is on an 83 minute shutout streak on the ice, but with those eyes and that hair you know it's a different story off the ice. The Capitals will be looking to the 2 Alex's, Ovechkin and Semin, to jumpstart an offense that has scored a grand total of 5 goals in 3 games, but despite their lack of productivity, Dale Hunter hasn't seen fit to take them completely out of the lineup. I mean, who would bench their two best goal scorers in an important game? Not a Coach of the Year candidate like Hunter, that's who.
