Final Thoughts:

The problem in the past has been building on momentum from one game to the next, at least we don't have to wait too long to see if we can keep it going.

22 down, 60 to go.

Washington Capitals (7-15; 15 points) vs. Carolina Hurricanes (13-10; 29 points):
Caps Game #23, Home Game #10, NHL Game #328

Verizon Center, Washington, DC. 7:07 pm. Washington TV: Comcast Sportsnet Mid-Atlantic. Radio: WWWT 1500-AM, 107.7-FM. Carolina TV: None. Radio: WCNC 99.9-FM. NHL Center Ice: Comcast Sportsnet Mid-Atlantic feed.

Tonight the Caps look to string wins together for only the second time this season when they face the Division leading Carolina Hurricanes. Carolina played last night at home, beating the Ning 4-3. The Canes have been alternating wins and losses over their last four games and have just two wins in their last five games.

What The Natives Are Saying:

Open Source Intelligence:

Durham Herald-Sun. Raleigh News & Observer: touch returns, last night's turning point, tonight's game, Canes notebook.

What Do I Expect Tonight?:

Will we see the third shutout in three games in the season series tonight? Since I've just jinxed it, I doubt it. But tonight pits two teams looking to regain their footing playing each other after big wins yesterday. The Caps have a little more rest than the Canes because the Caps played a matinee yesterday while the Canes played a regular night game. The question for the Caps now is how long with the "bounce" of having a new head coach last? We've already seen that the Caps can play with the Canes so it which team is going to show up tonight? I have to think that the "bounce" is going to last more than one game.

Caps Nut Official Prediction:

Caps 5
Canes 2
Winner by Poti.

(12-10 on the season)
