I love hockey on a Saturday night. Nothing better.
Ok a few things, but this is definitely up there.
The Maple Leafs (4-1-0) meander into DC to take on defending Stanley Cup Champions, the Capitals (2-1-0).

Lineup changes see Martin Marincin taking a seat in the advanced stats press box alongside Tyler Ennis.
After eating popcorn, Andreas Johnsson is going to get an opportunity to show Coach Babcock that his practice days have paid off and he is willing to play the game the right way. Leash is getting short, fast.
Igor Ozhiganov is looking to also show the staff in Toronto that he is ready for more minutes and can learn from mistakes made. I believe the organization is allowing Ozhiganov the opportunity to be eased into the schedule of North American hockey.
Meanwhile, Travis Dermott is the one who is truly being tested by Babcock, as players are rotated in and off his right side. Accolades continue to pour in for Dermott who many believe is ready for more minutes in the 2018-19 season.
Frederik Andersen starts again.
