Most People Think It Was The Snooze, But No, No Snooze

DC Sports Nexus ---- Wednesday, November 23, 2011

After a much needed win at home against the Coyotes on Monday night, the Capitals will take on the Winnipeg Jets at Verizon on the night before Thanksgiving. The Red Rally Balloons will be in full force trying to will the Caps to another victory.

I know whenever I have something important I set my alarm clock, my phone alarm, a backup alarm, and I tell 2 people to call me in the morning. Joel Ward didn't have that same system. Ward will miss the game (my least favorite term in the history of sports, "healthy scratch") after his alarm clock didn't go off and he was late to work. Was it the Am/Pm? Was it the snooze? Volume? Separate knob? Failed wake up call?

Although Jean-Paul won't be playing, Alex Semin will after his benching in the previous game. The Semin move spurred a lot of talk about his future with the team, but a strong game tonight could get him back on track in the eyes of the coaches and the fans.

The Jets come into town having won their last 3 games, and having 3 full nights of rest. In their last matchup, Evander Kane looked like an All-Star toasting the Caps D. It will be key tonight to shut him down. Eric Fehr, who according to a Google search was once on the Caps, is back from injury and will be on the ice at Verizon for the Jets.
