Caps vs. Ducks 12-8-2006 Preview

Washington Capitals (12-15; 30 points) vs. Anaheim Ducks (21-9; 48 points):
Caps Game #28, Home Game #15, NHL Game #420

Verizon Center, Washington, D.C. 7:05 pm. Washington TV: NewsChannel 8. Radio: WTNT 570-AM. Anaheim TV: Fox Sports Net West. Radio: KLAA 830-AM. NHL Center Ice: Fox Sports Net West feed.

Tonight the Caps close out their four game homestand and put their four game winning streak on the line against the best club in the NHL. The Ducks come to Washington starting a five game road trip that hits four of the five Southeast Division teams. Anaheim is coming off a shutout of the Nashville Predators on home ice on Tuesday night and has only lost twice in ten games on the road this season.

What The Natives Are Saying:

(Com)Post. Caps.com. Caps .pdf game notes. I still can't get the Times website to come up.

Open Source Intelligence:

L.A. Times. Orange County Register. I don't think Ducks.com does a preview but they are plugging a Watch Party at Hooters for tonight (I'm hoping they mean the game...).

Neutral Views:

NHL.com AP Wire.

What Do I Expect Tonight?:

Well the Quack Attack, like the Buffaslugs, posses the ability to embarass the Caps if the Caps fall asleep at any point in time tonight. Unfortunately, they won't be bringing busloads of drunken bandwagoners to provide electricity in building. That is going to be left up to the newly formed Caps Division of D.C. United's Barra Brava. Fifty Sixty of them are scheduled to be in Section 406 tonight and how many will be left at the end of the game is up in the air (I predict under 40) just as how much crowd energy they will provide. This is also the first time in four games that the Caps are facing a team that did not play the night before. While traveling across three time zones from West to East is never fun, the Quack Attack has had enough time to adjust.
