Chicago Blackhawks

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…

Injury Report

Chicago Blackhawks

  • The Blackhawks continue to be without Jonathan Toews, Colin Blackwell, Cole Guttman, Reese Johnson, Anders Bjork and Austin Wagner.

Washington Capitals

Carl Hagelin and Connor Brown are on IR.

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?
