  • Gamethread, Lineups, and More: Wild vs. Capitals (1:00 p.m.)


    Our beloved Minnesota Wild suffered a brutal 5-2 loss to the Boston Bruins after some goals were called back that just took them out of the game. Well, they have another chance less than 24 hours later to get back on the ice and earn some points against the Washington Capitals.

    The collection of injured players remained out yesterday, but they could return as soon as this afternoon. Jonas Brodin and Brandon Duhaime are the closest, with Marcus Foligno following them. So, in short, this lineup could be completely wrong and we won’t know until warm-ups.

    Projected Capitals lineup

    Alex Ovechkin — Dylan Strome — Conor Sheary
    T.J. Oshie — Evgeny Kuznetsov — Tom Wilson
    Sonny Milano — Nicklas Backstrom — Craig Smith
    Aliaksei Protas — Nic Dowd — Nicolas Aube-Kubel

    Rasmus Sandin — Trevor van Riemsdyk
    Matt Irwin — Gabriel Carlsson
    Alexander Alexeyev — Martin Fehervary

    Charlie Lindgren
    Darcy Kuemper

    You can really tell that this is a hockey team that is suffering from some key injuries and also sold at the NHL trade deadline. The group of forwards is fine, especially the fact that their top-nine still looks dangerous, but the blue line is full of either young up-and-comers or just depth journeymen. It will be interesting.
