Gameday Information: As expected, Stefan Matteau will replace the injured Ryan Carter, who is out with a head injury. There will be no changes to the Defense- Mark Fayne will sit out again. From the Caps side, Forwards Marcus Johansson and Brooks Laich will not play tonight per Stephen Whyno of the Washington Times. Mike Green's status is up in the air for tonight- if he can't go, Tom Poti will take Green's place in the lineup.
A Song For Tonight: If you've never heard of guitar virtuoso Tosin Abasi, you're missing out on quite a lot. While I'm not too sold on the "djent" movement of which he's part of, I still think he's incredibly talented. Today's song comes courtesy of his instrumental metal band- CAFO by Animals as Leaders
