Capitals

When the Capitals play the Bruins it is always a must-see contest.

Two of the biggest hitters in the league have quite the history against each other in Brad Marchand and Tom Wilson. Expect more of the same when they meet again on Saturday night. 

The Caps will be without Nic Dowd and Carl Hagelin, calling up defenseman Tyler Lewington in their place.

The Caps lost in regulation on Friday to Montreal for the first time since Oct. 14. 

Here is everything you need to know about Saturday night's game, which takes place at 7:00 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Washington.

CAPITALS at BRUINS PLAYERS TO WATCH

Capitals:

John Carlson, D: No. 74 has been the best offensive defenseman in the NHL through the first month and a half of the season. He leads all defensemen with 31 points, with Carolina's Dougie Hamilton the next closest with 21. 

T.J. Oshie, RW: After totaling 11 points in 14 games in October, Oshie has just three points in six games in November. Finding the back of the net will be tough for Oshie, as the Bruins allow just 2.39 goals per game, the NHL's fourth-best mark.

Bruins:

David Pastrnack, RW: Pastrnack has 31 points in 18 games.

Brad Marchand, C: Marchand is neck-and-neck with Pastrnack in points this season, as Marchand trails Pastrnack by just three. The duo will look to continue their early-season success in their first matchup with the Caps this season.
