  • Gamethread: Wild at Capitals (6:00 p.m.)


    The Minnesota Wild are hoping to continue this hot streak — even if they lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins earlier this week — against the Washington Capitals.

    The main storyline is of course Kirill Kaprizov finally facing his idol Alex Ovechkin, but this is also going to be a significant test against an always-competitive team featuring some heavy hitters. The offense will be there for both teams and they both have blueliners that can drive the puck up the ice with ease, so let’s just hope that the Wild can overcome any road fatigue.

    Projected lineup:

    Kirill Kaprizov—Ryan Hartman—Mats Zuccarello
    Tyson Jost—Frederick Gaudreau—Kevin Fiala
    Jordan Greenway—Joel Eriksson Ek—Marcus Foligno
    Brandon Duhaime—Nick Bjugstad—Nicolas Deslauriers

    Jacob Middleton—Jared Spurgeon
    Jonas Brodin—Matt Dumba
    Alex Goligoski—Dmitry Kulikov

    Cam Talbot will be getting the start against the Caps tonight, as Marc-Andre Fleury earned his third start and third win last night.

    Puck drop is at 6:00 p.m. Join us in the comments!
