🏒Capitals: Yesterday, the Caps erased their early two-goal deficit to beat the New Jersey Devils 4–3. For the first time in forever nine games, winger TJ Oshie scored not one, but two goals. Still, that score is a little too close for comfort against the Devils, a team we don’t consider a tough test.

  • The Caps will need to be sharper against the Pittsburgh Penguins tomorrow night at 7 p.m. ET. Here’s hoping that Ovi’s words of congratulations for rival Sidney Crosby’s 1,000th NHL game doesn’t actually bring the Pens luck. 

🏀Wizards: All we do is...win? With Saturday’s victory over the Portland Trail Blazers, the Wizards are now on a four-game winning streak (!!!), their longest in three years. First-time All-Star starter Bradley Beal still leads the offense, but the Wizards’ improved defense also deserves kudos. Growth.

While it’ll be a tall order to defeat the LA Lakers tonight at 10 p.m. ET, the defending champions have been shaky lately, especially without star Anthony Davis. Let’s see if the Wiz can brew up an upset.
