Caps vs Flyers pregame: The 700 Club - Russian Machine Never Breaks

After a weird three-day rest, the Washington Capitals are back to host the Philadelphia Flyers in a Saturday night division game. Alex Ovechkin is just two goals short of 700, and the Caps have made some lineup tweaks. Should be a fun night.

Puck drop at 7 PM. Hang out with me for recap stuff.

Projected Lines

A couple interesting tweaks, by way of WaPo’s Samantha Pell:

Ovechkin – Backstrom – Oshie

Vrana – Kuznetsov – Wilson

Hagelin – Eller – Panik

Leipsic – Dowd – Hathaway

Kempny – Carlson

Orlov – Fehervary

Siegenthaler – Gudas

The Columbus Hockey Analytics Conference is happening this weekend, and there has been some great information so far. I’ve been watching the livestream (along with Overwatch League), and I’ve learned a lot. Some tweets:

Per Micah, primary cause of score effects: the leading team sitting back. Not the trailing team pressing. #CBJHAC

Peter’s Esports Corner

Overwatch League is back as of today. A bunch has changed since last season: rules, rosters, team colors, and the streaming platform. The players on my LA Valiant are almost entirely changed along with swapping out their green and gold colors for a beach-y blue and yellow. Last year’s champions, the San Francisco Shock, still look like the team to beat, but with so much tumult anything could happen. I’ll be spending most of the day before the Caps game watching opening day. My picks are above. If anyone can surprise folks, I think it’ll be Toronto Defiant.
