The Isles get at it early as they close out their seven-game homestand with a visit from the resurgent Washington Capitals.
Lubomir Visnovsky is confirmed back on these shores and warming up. Game time decision with him and Joe Finley.
Meanwhile, via Staple:
Capuano on Thompson suspension: "He probably used a word he shouldn't have used. That's all I'll say about it." D. Weight will run D today.
The homestand has been 2-1-2. Not awful, but not quite as desired. Can they put a good-feel cap on it today?
This is your game thread. Be yours to hold it high.
