Tonight's lineup: Thrashers at Caps

By Katie Carrera

The Capitals get a chance to quickly erase the memory of Saturday's disappointing 3-2 overtime loss to the Sabres with another visit by the Atlanta Thrashers. Sunday's evening match-up marks the third meeting between the two Southeast Division foes this season and they face each other again this Friday in Atlanta.

In his pre-game comments to the media, Coach Bruce Boudreau said the Capitals would be without Tom Poti again but didn't offer any details as to why. Poti played against Tampa Bay on Nov. 11 after missing eight straight games with what was believed to be a groin injury.

Based on warm-up here is what the lineup should look like:

Forwards
Ovechkin-Backstrom-Semin
Chimera-Johansson-Knuble
Laich-Fleischmann-Fehr
Hendricks-Steckel-Bradley

Defense
Schultz-Green
Alzner-Carlson
Erskine-Sloan

Goal
Neuvirth
Holtby

Scratches: Tom Poti, D.J. King.

i should apologize to the entire Caps organization. I am the reason the team lost last night. More specifically, I missed last night's game and they lost. The last game I didn't watch was the Minnesota one, which they also lost. So, I take full responsibility and will tell everyone when I am going to miss another game so people can avoid it.

No, Aldred, it was not your fault. It was my fault. Game started at 4 and we weren't having dinner yet. Dinner would be at 6:30 (9:30 your time) and was turkey. I just didn't feel like drinking white wine. So I made gin & 7-Up (it IS white). To start the third I made one with prickly pear syrup to give a red tint and immediately backie scored. Thought I had it figured out, but no.

Don't kill yourself over this, Aldred15 - the blame is mine. Let me take pre-blame today, too. Game is on 2:00 PDT and I am NOT opening red wine this early. Plus we're having pork ribs anyway, after the game, for dinner.

I will drink beer. DARK beer. I think I have Samual Adams Oktoberfest. It's about 75 degrees here with light wind and really sunny and that is NOT, in the middle of the day, red wine drinking weather (should be cool out or night time). Sorry, but beer it is.

Aldred, actually, the problem will be worse for the Winter Classic (9:30 am start here).

I can drink beer any time after 7 am but I really don't like popping the cork on the wine until much later. I'm all for supporting the team but there ARE limits.

Enough talk of last night's shenanigans. This is a new game with different results. This is The Caps game! 2 points this time!!

Actually, the winning combination, so far, is Sierra Nevada Autumn Brown Tumbler Ale and radishes (because they are red).

I have been eating radishes lately for home games and it's been working.
