- Let’s do this again, shall we? Previews of today’s rematch from Vogs, and once again be sure to visit our SB Nation pals over at All About the Jersey for the other side of this weekend’s two-fer in Jersey.
- Evgeny Kuznetsov was a late scratch ahead of yesterday’s game with an upper body injury, and remains questionable for today. [NBCSW]
- 20 games into Peter Laviolette’s tenure, the Caps are starting to hit their stride. [NBCSW]
- Those who know him from his previous tenures understand why Laviolette is able to get so much out of his teams so quickly. [WaPo]
- It’s no secret that the Caps have struggled in faceoffs this year - but Nic Dowd has been hot in the dot. [NoVa Caps]
- Finally, happy 63rd birthday to Jay Johnston, happy 53rd to Jeff Greenlaw, and happy 25th to Jakub Vrana.
