The Caps look to get revenge on the Sabres tonight at the Verizon Center, as Buffalo makes the trip down to Washington to face the Ovechkins. Did you know “that’s great” Derek Roy has 21 points, while Ovi has 25? I also wonder if we’ll see an NHL goalie this time around.
Gerbe is back in while Kaleta sits with a bruised sternum. Rivet is…more interesting. He’s healthy, but Ruff may not want to mess with a winning lineup. Rivet isn’t happy about it, but even he said he understands the idea. It’s something to keep watching as the season develops. Would they ever reassign the captaincy with Rivet still here?
