After a day full of skate tests on the opening day of training camp, the Washington Capitals took part in a for real practice today and some even participated in a scrimmage.

We’re getting closer and closer to the start of the regular season but first the Caps will have six preseason games. That exhibition slate starts this Sunday afternoon against the Buffalo Sabres from Capital One Arena.

We’ve looked at storylines, we’ve looked at burning questions and now it’s time to make some bold predictions.

#3 Caps will go 3-2-1 in the preseason

We’ll start off our bold predictions by predicting game by game results for the Capitals. This part of the bold predictions is just for fun as we don’t know what the rosters will look like for each game and who’s playing in what particular game.

That’s the fun about the preseason as the roster changes each game as more cuts are made to determine the final opening night roster.

Alrighty let’s do this. The first game against Buffalo will be a win. The Caps will fall to the Philadelphia Flyers in regulation and the Detroit Red Wings in overtime. They’ll rebound with a win over the Columbus Blue Jackets and Red Wings before falling to the Blue Jackets in the preseason finale.
