Darcy Kuemper will certainly begin his 4th straight video game and also his 5th total for the Capitals. He had his ideal video game to day versus the Senators, making 39 reduces 42 shots.
Alex Ovechkin has just one factor in the 4 video games various other than his excellent efficiency versus the Vancouver Canucks.
