CAPITALS VS. MAPLE LEAFS WHAT TO WATCH
From NBC Sports Washington’s Bijan Todd:
“In the effort, Washington went 0-for-4 on the power play. Worse still, the Caps only mustered seven shots on goal in eight complete penalty minutes during the loss. Their third power play of the night, a minor slashing call on Taylor Hall in the second period, was the least effective of the bunch as Washington didn’t register a shot of any kind, on goal or otherwise.
From NBC Sports Washington’s Matt Weyrich:
Kuemper made his debut for Washington in its season opener against the Boston Bruins on Wednesday, stopping 25 of 29 shots for an .862 save percentage as he picked up the loss in the 5-2 decision that included an empty netter. Though the stat line was unimpressive, head coach Peter Laviolette felt the defensemen in front of Kuemper were more at fault for the high score total.
CAPITALS VS. MAPLE LEAFS PLAYERS TO WATCH
Capitals: Alex Ovechkin, LW (50 goals, 40 assists in 77 games in 2021-22): Ovechkin’s durability has been given special and very deserved attention, as the Great 8 recently set the NHL record for most goals in a season scored by a player age 36 or older. Can the Maple Leafs contain him?
Maple Leafs: Auston Matthews, C (60 goals, 46 assists in 73 games in 2021-22): Matthews won the Hart Trophy as the league’s most valuable player after putting up a 60-goal campaign last season. Can Washington’s defensive pairings and goaltender Darcy Kuemper keep him at bay?
