The Capitals take on the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena tonight in the second and final meeting between the teams this season. The Capitals are 13-11-1-2 all-time against the Predators.

T.J. Oshie is expected to play in his 700th career game tonight. He'll become the seventh forward from his draft class to reach the 700 games mark. Oshie has four points (2g, 2a) in his last four games. On Jan. 8, Oshie recorded his 200th career goal in the Capitals' 5-3 win over the Philadelphia Flyers. Only 51 players have reached the 200 goal milestone since 2008-09, when Oshie made his NHL debut. Since joining the Capitals in 2015-16, Oshie has recorded 90 goals in 256 games to rank second on the Capitals (Alex Ovechkin: 165) and his 17.0 shooting percentage ranks fourth in the NHL among players with at least 200 games played. Oshie's 13 goals this season are tied for third on the Capitals and his 51.36 on-ice shot attempt percentage (454 shot attempts for and 430 against) at five-on-five rank first among Capitals forwards. Oshie is 17 points shy of 500 career points.
