Gameday Updates

Sammi mentions elsewhere that Dowd is in a regular jersey and lists him on the Capitals’ fourth line. It’s possible that Oshie is in and, if so, he’ll likely bump Aube-Kubel to the fourth.

Keys to the Game

Play both offense and defense

Scoring goals without allowing goals is hard because pressing for one tends to make the other harder to succeed at. I don’t care. I don’t get paid to care. You get paid to care. I’m mad.

Don’t focus so much on one guy that Nick Jensen or Anthony Mantha dominates you

That would make me mad too.

Faster Decisions with the Puck

The extra split-second handling the puck and telegraphing the shots/passes have been a big difference between success and failure lately.
