Note: This game is also on the NHL Network in the U.S., with the Caps' feed.

Dwayne Roloson in net. Trent Hunter in -- conveniently returning for, but not replacing, Kyle Okposo. Blake Comeau almost certainly out (and possibly headed back to L.I., if he's that sick), in which case Rob Schremp returns. Alas, sounds like Mike Green is back, which totally breaks the whole sit-more-than-one-weapon handshake agreement I thought we had.

Scott Gordon told Katie Strang that Hunter has "probably the best shot on the team, in terms of release and accuracy." I'm going to assume a statement like that comes with obligatory "except John Tavares" fine print, 'cause ain't nobody placed a corner shot or hit as many posts this year as Tavares.

This here is the in-game thread. Like the diapers in Raising Arizona, "it's got them tapettes already on there. It's self-contained and fairly explanatory." Have fun. Let's. Go. H1N1-ders.
