Game 45 Preview: Bruins @ Washington OVECHKIN VS CHARA NIGHT WOOOOOO

Jan 17, 2009 7:00 PM ET
Radio: WBZ 1030AM
@ Washington Capitals (28-14-3)
  • The Caps are on a bit of a tear here. Ovechkin will run wild all over your defense if you let him.
  • Alexander Semin is also pretty good for them, and is an excellent bongo-player.
  • Kinda busy this afternoon, not a big-time preview. But this game should be huge. Ovechkin is a ridiculously good hockey player, and the Bruins have been really good this year. These are the top 2 teams in the east right now.
  • Lucic, Bergeron, and Ference are skating in team practice, but not cleared for battle drills.
  • The 2 Man Advantage will be at the game, so if you're going, say hi to them for me. And tell them about how the instigators really don't have a desk. Watch their hands some time.
  • After the way the Bruins played against the Islanders, this game may be bleak. I hope they have a good time getting fired up.
  • Chara will likely play against Ovechkin the most. Could be a huge game for him.
