Caps vs. Canes 11-17-2006 Wrap Up/ Caps @ Bruins 11-18-2006 Preview

The Local Yokels:

(Com)Post. Times: Canes buzz saw Caps, Captain Chris Clark Courageous.

The Neutral Observers: AP Wire.

The Other Side:

Raleigh News & Observer: Dads happy, Brind'Amour streak broken. (For those who need a good laugh after last night's game, watch your speakers, click here, and stay for the outtakes at the end.)

Final Thoughts:

Glen Hanlon and Olie Kolzig were right when they noted that this isn't the Carolina Hurricanes team that the Caps blew out in the home opener. The Canes are where the Caps want to be and clearly are not there yet. 19 down, 63 to go.

Washington Capitals (8-11; 21 points) @ Boston Bruins (7-9; 16 points):
Caps Game #20, Road Game #11, NHL Game #283

Tonight the Caps limp out of this week and a three games in four nights set by visiting the Boston Bruins. Since beating the Caps in a gimmick, the Bruins beat Toronto 2-1 in overtime on Thursday night.

What Do I Expect Tonight?:

With Clark and Alexander Semin not making the trip tonight along with the recent spate of poor play, there isn't much reason to bet on the Caps tonight. So far in this young season the Caps have responded well and have played good solid hockey games after very poor performances with their backs against the wall. The Caps are likely to start Brent Johnson in goal tonight which has always seemed to pick the team up a bit. Whether or not this all translates into a much needed win remains to be seen.
