Open thread: Capitals at Senators


(Nick Wass/Associated Press) Mike Ribeiro leads the Caps with six points heading into tonight’s game at Ottawa.

Washington looks to carry the momentum from its first win of the season into Ottawa tonight as it takes on the 3-1-1 Senators, who will be without Jason Spezza.

Michal Neuvirth, who is making a strong case for himself as the Capitals No. 1 goalie, gets a fourth straight start and will be opposed by Craig Anderson (3-0-1, .975 save percentage and 0.74 GAA). In 11 career games against Washington, Anderson is 5-5-1 with a .918 save percentage and 2.72 GAA.
