Capitals vs. Senators on Super Bowl Sunday

The Washington Capitals narrowly defeated Canada’s worst team earlier this week. Now, on Super Bowl Sunday, they must take on Canada’s second worst team, the Ottawa Senators

Super Bowl Predictions

I don’t have one. I know nothing about these two teams. I’m not trying to be insufferably edgy or contrarian, but I’m probably gonna watch a Jane Austen movie or play an indie video game about postpartum depression or read a nonfiction book about communist architecture instead of watching the game. That’s just me. Bengals by 6.


Not Auston Watson

The forward was suspended two games for this elbow into Jack Ahcan’s head.

Featuring the return of Ovi and top-six Snively. From Samantha:

Ovechkin–Backstrom–Sheary
Snively–Kuznetsov–Wilson
McMichael–Eller–Sprong
Hagelin–Dowd–Hathaway

Fehervary–Carlson
Orlov–Jensen
TvR–Schultz

Samsonov


1-0 Senators

Washington allows their 7th shorthanded goal of the season. Really dismal start.


2-0 Senators

Gaudette on the rush. This is a bad start. The Sens are unrested and also bad.


Backstrom scores, 2-1 Sens

Ovechkin takes the shot and Backstrom seals the rebound.


Wilson denied

Mondo save by Anton Forsberg here


Brady Tkachuk to the quiet room

After this hit to the head by John Carlson


3-1 Sens

In his first shift back, Tkachuk snagged a loose puck in the slot to put Washington in a two-goal hole.


Wilson vs Nick Paul

Paul, who is probably not the brother of Logan and Jake but let’s pretend, took offense to Wilson’s big clean hit on Chabot. Wilson won the fight.


4-1 Sens

Sammy lets in a soft one from Conor Brown.


Well that sucked. Game recap from Chris here.
