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.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
