CAPITALS VS. RED WINGS WHAT TO WATCH
From NBC Sports Washington's Andrew Gillis:
"For as much as Alex Ovechkin has broken records and reached milestones this season, it’s gotten to the point where he doesn’t even know when it happens." Read more.
From NBC Sports Washington's J.J. Regan:
"Tom Wilson was happy about his two-goal game on Monday ... mostly. While Wilson managed to rack up the assists early on in the season, recording seven in his first six games, the goals have been hard to come by. You would expect Wilson to be all smiles, and he was, but there was a part of him that wishes he had just "got out of the way." Read more.
CAPITALS VS. RED WINGS PLAYERS TO WATCH
Alex Ovechkin, LW, Capitals (12 games, 11 goals, 21 points): Alex Ovechkin remains arguably the best goal-scorer in hockey and is a threat to find the back of the net on a nightly basis. His next goal will move him into third place on the all-time list, passing Brett Hull.
Tyler Bertuzzi, LW, Red Wings (10 games, 9 goals, 15 points): Bertuzzi enters Thursday's contest with a team-best 15 points to his name and leads the Red Wings in goals with nine. He's coming off a back injury that limited him to just nine games last season.
