A Southeast Division rivalry will be on display on national television Thursday night.
The Washington Capitals, who have built a six-point lead in the Southeast at 18-8-3, will host the Florida Panthers at the Verizon Center. The game, which is slated for 7 p.m. ET, can be seen in the U.S. on VERSUS.
