Be Ready to Compete - Both teams traveled last night. Short turn around after last night's games. The team who can get out of the gate the fastest has the best chance to seize control of the game.
Stay Out of the Penalty Box - Washington has the best pp in the league clicking at 25%. Alex Ovechkin has 24 pp goals himself. The entire team has 58. So Ovechkin has 41% of the teams pp tallies. Stay clean.
Mrazek Must Be Sharp - Howard did his job last night now it's Mrazek's turn. Back to back games haven't been good lately. Solid goalkeeping can change that.
