Verizon Center is about to host a game that hasn’t happened in 25 years. Two teams still stand undefeated. The Caps are 6-0-0 and the Red Wings are 5-0-0. One from the East one from the West. You can’t ask for a better game!
Tonight’s match up is big, both teams want to continue their streaks. Detroit is always a tough opponent and with it being Nick Lidstroms 1500th game (congrats to Lidstrom on becoming the 14th person in NHL history to achieve that mark) i’m sure the Wings are gonna be looking to give their Captain a big W. That means the Caps are gonna need to play a complete 60 minute game tonight.
Vokoun gets his 6th consecutive start tonight against Detroit. Know I feel that he has paid us back already for his rather lackluster start but if he wants to get the guys to owe him then tonight’s the night. I hope the boys give him the kind of defense he deserves but eventually the Wings are gonna break thru so let’s see some Vokeswagon magic!
Time to scream and shout and ROCK THE RED!! Caps and Wings tonight puck drops at 7!!!
