Ottawa Again = More Chances To Spell It Ottowa!

DC Sports Nexus ---- Tuesday, December 6, 2011

On Wednesday night the Washington Capitals will fly to Canada to face the Ottawa Senators for the 3rd time this season. Just two games ago the Caps and Sens met and Dale Hunter picked up his first and only win for the Capitals.

In Monday's game against the Panthers, Hunter went with the "hot" goaltender Mikey Neuvirth, who was not really hot. But he beat the Senators in OT giving up only 2 goals in the previous game so Dale opted to use him against Florida instead of Tomas Vokoun who had shutout the 1st place Panthers earlier in the year. I would guess that Voko will get the start tomorrow night...or else Hunter has some 'splainin to do...

The Senators and Caps are straddling the 8th and 9th seeds in the East (respectively) but the Caps have won both matchups this year so far.

According to Caps Insider, Ovi, Semin, and Backstrom were all practicing as the first line, so that should be interesting if they go into the game like that.
