The Previews: My preview from way early this morning can be found here, including a whole lot of disgust at John MacLean's forward lines in Monday's practice. For the Capitals side, please check out Japers' Rink.
Gameday Info: Earlier today, Tom Gulitti reported that Anssi Salmela will be a healthy scratch. Matthew Corrente will likely be paired with Anton Volchenkov. Also from this morning, Greg Schimmel of the Washington Post's Capital Insider blog reported quite a bit for the home team: Matt Hendricks is doubtful, Alexander Semin is questionable, Eric Fehr is still out, and it appears that Michal Neuvirth will be starting for the Caps.
Incidentally: Schimmel also reported this quote from Mike Knuble:
"For all the things that have been terrible about us, it's a little bit worse for them," Caps winger Mike Knuble said. "We know how they're feeling but we're trying to climb out of a hole ourselves, so we're not worried about them. We need to get some wins going."
Well, I can't say it's bulletin board material in that it's entirely true.
Some Whimsy: A reader named David would like me to introduce to you Danger, the unofficial Devils mascot for this season. I know he's a loyal reader because Danger is a unicorn.
A Song for Tonight: It's a game against D.C., and as such, Dag Nasty needs to be represented again. Here's the title track from the seminal Can I Say album.
