Open thread: Capitals at Lightning


(Wilfredo Lee/Associated Press)

The Capitals are looking to extend their modest winning streak to three games tonight as they take on the Tampa Bay Lightning, who have recorded just one point in the past five games.

Usual starter Anders Lindback is sick, so Mathieu Garon (1-2-0, 2.83 GAA, .918 save percentage) gets the nod in net for Tampa Bay while the Capitals will turn to Braden Holtby (3-4-0, 4.04 GAA, .874 save percentage.
