THE STORY FOR THE CAPS

After being shut down by one of their biggest rivals, the Capitals hope to bounce back with a third straight victory over the visitingMontreal Canadiens on Friday night.

In the midst of a 7-1-1 stretch, Washington (12-9-1) totaled 12 goals during a three-game winning streak that ended with Wednesday's 4-0 home loss to rival Pittsburgh. The Capitals were held to a season-low 18 shots, shut out for the first time in a month and outmatched by the Penguins in just about every aspect of the game.
BTW, OVIE HAS 17 GOALS
AS FOR THE HABS:

The Canadiens look to build on their most productive offensive game of the season after Max Pacioretty recorded a natural hat trick in Tuesday's 6-2 victory over Minnesota. They had lost seven of the previous 11 while totaling 19 goals.Montreal's leader in points the past two seasons, Pacioretty snapped an eight-game goal drought with a hat-trick, to run his point total to seven through 13 games. He missed nine games due to injury.

Rene Bourque, who has a lower-body injury and won’t play against the Capitals.
Peter Budaj will get the start in goal for the Canadiens. Budaj has posted a 3-1 record this season with a 1.48 goals-against average and a .945 save percentage.

As usual, great GDT Kinot! Tonight is all about offensive production, a performance similar to that against the Wild will make this an amazing game. Budaj should be able to keep us in it, so its all about putting the puck in the net. Caps today and Pens tomorrow so it'll be a tough back to back, but you can do it boys! Go Habs Go!!

Nice one, Kinot. :)

Not gonna lie, Washington scares me. Their power play is ridiculous, and given the teams ability to be undisciplined and undisciplined, it could be bad. But, it could also be great. Since the '10 playoffs, Capitals fans don't a seem to like us very much. I wouldn't mind reinforcing that tonight. :lol:

The PP, is pretty equal at 24.1% for the Habs and 23.6% for the Caps.

The PK is pretty close as well, with the Habs at 85.0% and the Caps at 86.2%.
The PPO are 89 to 83 for the Caps and times shorthanded are 80 for the Habs as opposed to 89 for the Caps.
CRB is going to miss a goodie.
