Tonight the Caps head back on the road to meet the undefeated Minnesota Wild. The Caps are coming off of a win over Carolina Saturday night while the Wild beat Vancouver in a gimmick at home on Tuesday night. The Wild have won all three games by one goal and are playing their fourth straight home game to open the season.

What Do I Expect Tonight?:

Any momentum that the Caps earned Saturday night is gone. According to my DVD recorder, the Caps have only scored one goal in three visits to the Xcel Energy Center. The Wild know how to play defense and the Caps had struggled mightily on the road. I can't see tonight being any different.
