The Caps just finished up the morning skate here in Arlington. Staffan Kronwall and Brian Pothier are still on the ice — making it a good bet that Kronwall is the odd man out tonight. Bruce Boudreau said there would lineup changes tonight, but having just sent two guys down that played against the Panthers means there had to be.
The Caps host Montreal (don’t forget the late start time to accomodate TSN/NHL Network) as they try to keep pace with New Jersey for the No. 2 spot in the Eastern Conference. Meanwhile, the Bleu, Blanc et Rouge are having some issues right now.
More later tonight from the rink.
