Capitals vs Ducks, a showdown in dc
The Washington Capitals face Anaheim Ducks on this Monday evening. The Capitals are without Conor Sheary, Nic Dowd, and Trevor van Riemsdyk who are all out with covid protocol. The last time these two teams met, the Ducks won in overtime in a thriller. Recently, the third and fourth line have been producing more than the first two lines, so scoring is coming from all skaters. While the Caps have been using rookies who have been called up from Hershey, the team has looked faster on ice while using the younger skaters. Alex Ovechkin is having a season to remember as he has already scored 20 goals and has also been dishing the puck very well as he has racked up 19 assists so far this season. Evgeny Kuznetsov is also having a season to be remembered as he has been dishing the puck very well and has been an asset on the penalty kill. This year this Capitals team looks hungry to make a statement during not only the regular season but also the playoffs if they can make it in.
