The Washington Capitals host the Detroit Red Wings for the third and final time this season. They’ll be looking to snap a four game losing streak. They are 1-1-0 against Detroit this season falling to them 3-1 on Nov. 3 at Little Caesars Arena and then winning 4-3 in overtime on Dec. 19 at home.
In that game, the Caps rallied from a 2-0 second period thanks to two goals from Nic Dowd 11 seconds apart and Dmitry Orlov’s 15th career game winning goal 4:38 into overtime. The Caps have earned points in 16 of their last 17 games against the Red Wings going 13-1-3 dating back to Nov. 18, 2015, including an active nine game point streak at home with a 7-0-2 record.
Some news happened the last couple days. Let’s start with the Red Wings where we’ll see the return of Jakub Vrana to their lineup against his old team. For the Caps yesterday they recalled Dylan McIlrath and sent Joe Snively to the Hershey Bears. Today the Caps sent Aliaksei Protas to Hershey meaning Nic Dowd should be back in the lineup.
