Is anything better than a Zdeno Chara power-play goal? They are so consistent that we almost expect them. Since Julien plans to leave him in front of the net again tonight, we can expect away. Welcome back, captain.
Ovechkin and Backstrom are both expected back in the lineup tonight. Veteran strength will force defense to clean up and work hard. Rask and Smith have their work cut out of them.
