GDP #77: Sens @ The District

It's a battle of Capital's tonight, as the Sens are in DC to take on the league's best team, in what should be a very exciting matchup. The last time these 2 teams hooked up here in Ottawa, it was a classic. Expect the same thing tonight.

When playing the Caps, we all know what to watch out for by now. They have the game's most exciting and best player in Alexander Ovechkin, plus Mike Green, Semin and a bunch of other good players. That's why they're number 1 right now. There weakness is goaltending, where it's unclear which one of their mediocore goalies will get the nod tonight.

On the Sens side of things, there's lots going on. Anoton Volchenkov will sit out after taking that big hit to the neck from Any Sutton, so Brian Lee suits up instead. There was talk of newly signed NCAA player Bobby Butler suiting up, but tonight won't be the night, although we now know he will wear #16 for the Sens. Look fro Brian Elliott, fresh of the 1st star of the week, to get the start.

Predicition: Sens always have a tough time in the DMV area for some reason and this year, the Caps are a superior team as well. I wouldn't be suprised if we got the win, but I don't anticipate it. Caps win 5-2. The streak ends at 4.

Great game by Spezz, Alfie, and Regin. That was a beautiful tip by Kovy; however,imo he is still not forgiven for his terrible play. He rarely moves his feet at all, and he could have cost us tonight if his needless, selfish crosscheck with 4min left had been caught.
