Tonight's Lineup

No surprises. Mike Green, Alexander Semin and Sergei Fedorov are out against the Wild at Xcel Energy Center. And since the Caps are off tomorrow, there likely won't be an update on their status until Wednesday.

Goalies
Jose Theodore will get the nod in net and oppose Niklas Backstrom.

Forwards
Ovechkin-Backstrom-Kozlov
Fleischmann-Nylander-Bradley
Laich-Steckel-Fehr
Brashear-Gordon-Clark

Defense
Poti-Sloan
Morrisonn-Schultz
Erskine-Jurcina

I'll have an update after writing my gamer for the newspaper. So check back in a few hours for some post-game thoughts, notes and quotes.

Feed is live and in HD on Versus HD. Enjoy the game everyone!

I don't get Vs so I was looking for it online.

ph0082,

Just like 80% of the country. Good luck

Shocker: 3:10 in and first Erskine give away leads to scoring chance.

Lee: Comcast, Verizon, DirecTV, Dish Network, and RCN all have it. What local provider doesn't?

Posted by: GregAnnapolis | November 24, 2008 8:15 PM | Report abuse

Greg,

In this area we are blessed apparently. I have heard in the hinterlands that Versus is hard to find.

Posted by: Leeguru | November 24, 2008 8:18 PM | Report abuse

Lee: That sucks, they are missing out. Versus has come a *LONG* way in the last few seasons.

Posted by: GregAnnapolis | November 24, 2008 8:19 PM | Report abuse

My sister on the eastern shore is sans Versus.

Posted by: uncatim | November 24, 2008 8:22 PM | Report abuse

Listening to the MN feed. First time. SOunds like the Carolina guys. Thought the caps scored. Stoopid uppermidwesterners!

Make up call, much? :\

Posted by: GregAnnapolis | November 24, 2008 8:27 PM | Report abuse

Lovely Erskine, lovely.

Well, we should be up 3-1. Dang...

stoopid net catching the puck as it goes past Joe-say

Posted by: Leeguru | November 24, 2008 8:37 PM | Report abuse

Come on guys it's the dangerous feared Clutterbuck, you can't be so hard on them!

Posted by: austinsteve | November 24, 2008 8:37 PM | Report abuse

Bernie, yeah, the Minnesota Backstrom is on fire tonight. Let's hope we can fix that.

Posted by: GregAnnapolis | November 24, 2008 8:41 PM | Report abuse

Not a bad period, but I've seen better. Come on, Caps!

Posted by: GregAnnapolis | November 24, 2008 8:45 PM | Report abuse

Greg,
I think we might be playing abit timid, which makes him look like he is "on fire". Anyway, we need to bury our chances.

Posted by: BernieWolfeFan | November 24, 2008 8:48 PM | Report abuse

I think I like Versus.

Posted by: BernieWolfeFan | November 24, 2008 8:50 PM | Report abuse

GMGM on MN feed. I'll keep you posted

Posted by: Leeguru | November 24, 2008 8:50 PM | Report abuse

Maybe if all the forwards weren't on vacation on the other side of the net, Erskine would have had some one to pass to.

Posted by: sidehillman | November 24, 2008 8:52 PM | Report abuse

The Caps are really a lot of fun to watch, and to cheer and be fan of.

However, I think that if we want something more, repairs are needed for our D. We keep getting these... *insert proper adjective here* goals...

Posted by: mauree | November 24, 2008 8:54 PM | Report abuse

Bernie, why, because they actually show hockey highlights during an intermission in a hockey game? :)

Posted by: GregAnnapolis | November 24, 2008 8:55 PM | Report abuse

CSN is a joke. They advertise their "intermission report" and then show some basketball stuff and whatnot and lots of ads but not hockey, same thing after the game. Why do they think people watching a hockey game care about basketball, well some do, but I don't.

Greg,

Linsay who?

Posted by: BernieWolfeFan | November 24, 2008 9:03 PM | Report abuse

I still don't like that Ovie is on the PK :(

Posted by: mauree | November 24, 2008 9:04 PM | Report abuse

Or that. :)

Soto, I think it is.

Posted by: GregAnnapolis | November 24, 2008 9:06 PM | Report abuse

Hello everyone, Just thought I would come by and say hi. I hope the Caps are having a better time of it tonite. Go Caps since they are playing a west team.

Cluster-who?

Luv how the Caps have the power to make a mediocre player look like a stud.

Part Deux: Erskine, lovely. Between him and Juice = Worthless

Clutter_uck Fill in the missing letter yourself

I do believe coach BB just dropped the "f" bomb...twice.

Posted by: cbs75 | November 24, 2008 9:14 PM | Report abuse

cbs yes lol. That penalty was debatable. Luckily we didn't get that 4 minutes minor of Poti high stick.

Posted by: mauree | November 24, 2008 9:17 PM | Report abuse

We are lucky that Poti didn't get a minor for high sticking.

*BIG* penalty kill. Big! Now let's go Caps!

Posted by: GregAnnapolis | November 24, 2008 9:17 PM | Report abuse

Finally a chance on the PP. Now's the time, boys!
