What Do I Expect Tonight?:

Lots and lots of mullets in the stands... The Caps have been enjoying home cooking recently and for the most part have been playing well on home ice. The Penguin scum have cooled off considerably since their hot start and have been benefiting from playing in a weak Atlantic Division. Tonight is the first game this season to carry a ton of hype into the contest for the Caps. The Caps have played some of their best hockey of the season in front of large home crowds that have a lot of energy in the stands. Tonight should be one of those games.
