What Do I Expect Tonight?:

During a good part of the 1990's the Caps dominated the series between these two teams. Now the Caps haven't won on Long Island since December 2nd, 2003. Up until recently, the Caps have responded well when they had their backs up against the wall. At some point in time the Caps are going to break out of their funk and start winning some games. In some of these recent losses, the effort has been there, but the luck hasn't been.

Editorial Note For The Dozen Readers Of This Blog:

Once again work commitments prevent me from watching tonight's game and considering my recent track record (I haven't watched the Caps win since 10-30-2006 @ Calgary) this is probably a good thing. Therefore, no post-mortem tonight.
