Hey Caps fans,
Tonight's game against the Carolina Hurricanes is about to start, so here are the key pre-game notes.
-Jose Theodore will start for the second consecutive game for the injured Semyon Varlamov. Varlamov is currently out with a lower body injury he suffered in the final seconds of Monday night's win at Tampa. Theodore allowed three goals in Wednesday's loss to the Buffalo Sabres.
-Mike Knuble returns after missing 11 games with a broken finger. He will most likely skate on the first line tonight with Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin.
-The Caps are 7-0 versus the Southeast Division this season posting a perfect 7-0-0 record.
-Tonight's starting line features Brooks Laich and Alexander Semin skating alongside center Brendan Morrison.
