Preview:

The Capitals sent D John Carlson back to his junior team and C Mathieu Perrault to Hershey on Sunday. The roster is now down to 32 players. Chris Bourque is trying to make it difficult for the Caps to send him down with two outstanding performances in the last two games. He currently leads the team with 4 points in the preseason. The Caps have scored 13 goals in their three preseason games and 7 of those have come on the power play. They have a 46.7% success rate going 7 for 15. The penalty kill has allowed only 3 goals in 21 chances. If the Caps can keep this up they will win a lot of hockey games. The team takes on New Jersey tonight in New Jersey. Look for the Caps to work on their 5-on-5 game and try to reduce the number of penalties taken.


Joe’s prediction: Caps 4 NJ 2

Isn't this Washington Caps AT NJ? So it should be at the Prudential Center in NJ not Verizon Center.

Very good. That's what I get for following only 1 lead.
