The Caps head west for a hugely important road trip, as they fight to keep their playoff hopes alive – and will have to do so against some of the league’s toughest teams, in a condensed schedule of five games in eight nights. The trip kicks off in Manitoba, where the Caps face off against the Jets.

First, some admin stuff:

  • Who: Capitals @ Jets
  • Where: Canada Life Centre
  • When: 7:30 p.m.
  • How to Watch: Monumental
  • How to Listen: 106.7, Capitals Radio 24/7

Some questions about the lineup tonight, as T.J. Oshie may be set to return but neither Tom Wilson nor Charlie Lindgren participated in morning skate for “maintenance” reasons, so…this is what the illustrious Mike Vogel is guessing for tonight:

Ovechkin – Lapierre – Protas
Milano -Strome – Miroshnichenko
Pacioretty – McMichael – Oshie
Malenstyn – Sgarbossa – AubĂ©-Kubel

van Riemsdyk – Carlson
Sandin – Jensen
Alexeyev – Bear


Time to kick this trip off on the right foot. Let’s go, babes!
