Greetings from Nashville, or ‘Smashville’, where the Capitals will have the majority of their NHL lineup on the ice against the Predators. It’s the final road game of the preseason and possibly a critical night for players on the bubble for that remaining forward spot.
Wednesday morning, Coach Bruce Boudreau said the next round of cuts could come as early as tomorrow so for forwards Mathieu Perreault, Mattias Sjogren and Cody Eakin (Chris Bourque isn’t expected to play) it’s time to make one more argument as to why they should remain in Washington.
Tonight’s game won’t be televised and while the Predators are streaming video of the contest online, it will be geographically restricted to fans in the Nashville market. The good news, however, is that the game will be broadcast on 1500 AM in Washington beginning at 8 p.m.
As always, share your thoughts on the game in the comment section below.
Here’s what the Capitals’ lineup should look like:
