Capitals vs. Hurricanes: Time, TV Channel, Live Stream, how to watch

Saturday's 5-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils may have been the low point in the Capitals season. Following a 3-2 loss to Philadelphia earlier in the week, the Capitals were unable to do anything against one of the worst teams in the league. The power play continues to struggle, and their lead in the division continues to shrink.

Things are not going well right now, but that has a chance to change on Monday night. Not only can the Capitals pick up a much-needed win, but they can do it against a team that is quickly becoming the rival.

After a grueling seven-game series against the Carolina Hurricanes in last year's playoffs that saw Carolina come out on top, there has been no love lost between the two teams. Plenty of petty moments have turned the Capitals and Hurricanes into budding rivals. The two have seen a lot of each other quite recently, as this will be the third matchup since December 28. Each team has won one game.

In what will be an important game for the Capitals, here's what you need to know.

CAPITALS-HURRICANES PLAYERS TO WATCH:

Hurricanes: James Reimer (10-6, 3SO) and Petr Mrazek (17-10, 3SO), G: No matter who starts in goal on Monday night, a struggling Caps offense will have a hard time getting back on track. Both Reimer and Mrazek have been rock solid in the net, and it is the first time in team history two goalies have each recorded three shutouts.

Capitals: Evgeny Kuznetsov (16,26,42), C: Prior to Sunday's poor showing all around, Kuznetsov had been riding a seven-game point streak. If the Capitals want to get back to their winning ways, they'll need more production from Kuzy.

Nic Dowd and Garnet Hathaway discuss how they would survive a zombie apocalypse

Nic Dowd and Garnet Hathaway discuss how they would survive a zombie apocalypse

Have you ever wondered what to do in the event of a zombie apocalypse?

Sure you have. 

In this worst-case scenario, it’s important to think about where you would go, what you would eat and what would be your weapon of choice. 

But no worries, if you haven’t thought that far ahead Washington Capitals players Nic Dowd and Garnet Hathaway have shared some ideas. 

On the latest episode of Between Two Blue Lines podcast, hosted by Zach Guerette, Dowd and Hathaway had some fun explaining how they would survive a zombie apocalypse.  

“I honestly think I would find as many bags of Power up as I could. Power up lasts forever and its high energy which you’re going to need battling zombies,” Hathaway said.

“I’ve always thought about this do you go into the woods and disappear? I mean the zombies necessarily shouldn’t be out there because they seem like they stick in cities,” Dowd chimed in.

“So the first thing I think I’d do is raid a gun store,” Dowd said.

When asked about their weapon of choice, Dowd replied, “Samurai sword, it’s so sharp you can’t run out of bullets.” 

Dowd and Hathaway also discussed The Bachelor. 

When asked which Capitals player would be eliminated first on the Bachelor, Garnet responded, “Lars.” “I would love to see V in that situation ... he would only last an episode.”

Dowd, on the other hand, answered, “Tom would be the guy that stirs the pot & gets people going.”
