Blackhawks at Capitals – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread
The Capitals blew a lead on Tuesday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets, doing the Blackhawks a favor in the Bad for Bedard Sweepstakes. Washington is desperately trying to get into the wild card still, so a bounce-back performance against the Blackhawks tonight could be a recipe for a strong performance by the home team — and a loss for Chicago. But this Blackhawks team has never wanted to hear about how they’re supposed to lose, so stay tuned…

What to Watch For
- Dylan Strome revenge game? Maybe Trevor van Riemsdyk? Both have signed extensions to stay in Washington for the next three years.
- For what it’s worth, Strome has points in eight of his past nine games with 13 points (four goals, nine assists) in the span.
- Lukas Reichel has just one point — an assist — in his last six games. Taylor Raddysh has been held without a point in his last three contests. Will one of them break out tonight?
