What Do We Expect Tonight?:
We find it interesting how the Caps current six game winning streak started against the Buffaslugs, a franchise they've had the most trouble with throughout their history, and now the Caps are looking to beat the Buffaslugs again to extend that streak to seven games which would be their longest this season. Again looking into history, the Caps haven't had much success up in

Winner by Vanek
(14-16 on the season with one perfect game)
