Dowd and Oshie still day-go-day, per Caps.— Sammi Silber (@sammisilber) December 19, 2022
Will see how Kuemper feels after skate to see if he can dress tonight.
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.
