Hope you enjoyed the Turkey Washington Capitals fans. And I hope you got your Black Friday shopping done because the Caps have an early one today.
Today at 2 p.m. the Capitals will host the Calgary Flames in a blackout game as fans will get a reverse retro T shirt while the team dons those sweet Screaming Eagle jerseys.
The Caps held a practice on Thanksgiving since there’s no morning skate today. Here were the lines via Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic:
