Silver Nuggets: Elliott to start against motivated Capitals

  • Brian Elliott will start again tonight. Good call, in my mind, because throwing Pascal Leclaire to the wolves would have been a little rough. No lineup changes. (Twitter)
  • Semyon Varlamov starts for the Caps. (Twitter)
  • And you know what's awesome? That the Washington Capitals' winning streak was snapped last night, and it's all controversial. They're not going to be pissed and motivated tonight, or anything. (Puck Daddy)
  • "Battle of the streakers"? Really? (Globe and Mail)
  • Jonathan Cheechoo will keep his promotion to the top line tonight, at least to start the game, and I'm guessing Chris Kelly gets shutdown duty again with Mike Fisher and Daniel Alfredsson. Lines: Michalek-Spezza-Cheechoo; Kelly-Fisher-Alfredsson; Kovalev-Regin-Shannon; Ruutu-Winchester-Neil. (Twitter)
  • Speaking of Kelly, his contract looks better this season than it did last year. Much better. (Citizen)
  • Sens d-man Chris Phillips thinks it will be a "fun challenge" to take on Alexander Ovechkin. You got the 'challenge' part right, Chris, I'm not sure about the other part. (Sun)
  • Covers, "a one-stop shop for current and accurate sports gaming information", is picking Otttawa to win tonight. (Covers)
  • This just in: The Senators are way better than they were last season. (Citizen)
  • Apparently, Chris Neil's favourite jersey is the old Dallas Stars one. I'm hoping he isn't referring to this one. (Citizen)
