The Washington Capitals take on the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night from Capital One Arena in the second game of a three game pre Christmas homestand.
Their five game winning streak came to an end against the Dallas Stars on Thursday night and the visitors ended up avoiding being on the wrong side of history as Alex Ovechkin was held without a goal.
All eyes will be on him tonight both across America and in Canada for their Hockey Night in Canada broadcast. Sitting just two goals away from second place all time, he could pass Gordie Howe.
There was some good news at Capitals morning skate at MedStar Capitals Iceplex. Nicklas Backstrom was on the ice in a normal jersey. Sonny Milano, who missed Thursday night’s game against the Dallas Stars with a non COVID illness was also on the ice.
