At the midway mark of their five-game homestand, the Caps have collected exactly 0 points. They’ll be looking to right that wrong against a visiting Kings team on a similar slide, as the two teams renew acquaintances at Capital One Arena this afternoon.

First, some admin stuff:

  • Who: Capitals vs. Kings
  • Where: Capital One Arena
  • When: 3:00 p.m.
  • How to watch: Monumental, NHL Network
  • How to listen: 106.7, Capitals Radio 24/7

With a matinee and no morning skate, there are lots of lineup questions that likely won’t be answered until just before puck drop, including whether the captain will play or if Charlie Lindgren is good to go. The only thing we know, aside from the guys who remain out with various injuries, is that Rasmus Sandin is a no-go, missing his second game with an illness.
