Open thread: Capitals vs. Wild


(Jonathan Newton / The Washington Post)

The Caps complete their three-game homestand tonight against Minnesota. A win would be their fourth in a row, which couldn’t hurt before they hit the road Saturday for back-to-back games in Phoenix and Colorado.

Braden Holtby, who made 34 saves in Tuesday’s 6-2 victory over the Isles, is starting in net again.

Judging by warmups, the Caps will keep the same lineup that excelled against the Islanders.

Erat-Backstrom-Ovechkin

Laich-Johansson-Brouwer

Chimera-Grabovski-Ward

Volpatti-Latta-Wilson

 

Alzner-Carlson

Schmidt-Green

Urbom-Oleksy

 

Holtby

Scratches: Fehr, Orlov, Beagle

Faceoff: 7 p.m., Verizon Center
TV: CSN | Radio: 106.7 FM
