Greetings from Verizon Center (complete with black protective netting once again) where the Capitals will try to spark their offensive creativity after scoring just nine goals in the first five preseason games.
Tonight’s tilt against the Sabres will feature a largely-complete NHL lineup, with a few exceptions. Mike Knuble has been given the game off and the team isn’t taking any chances with Michal Neuvirth, so Braden Holtby will serve as backup in net to Tomas Vokoun.
The game will not be televised but you can hear John Walton and Ken Sabourin call the game on 1500 AM. Also, the Capitals are streaming the in-house feed online here.
As always share your thoughts on the game and preseason in the comment section below.
Check out the lineup after the jump.
