Washington Capitals (5-2-2, 1st/SE) at New York Islanders (1-4-3, 5th/Atl)
7 p.m. EDT | Nassau [gloriously unsponsored] Veterans Mem. Coliseum | MSG+, radio

If you didn't catch the update in the preview or check elsewhere: Doug Weight still out, joined by Rob Schremp Hockey and Freddy Meyer The Fourth. Jon Sim and Bruno Gervais back in. (If any of this has changed, to let others know in comments.)

Frans Nielsen has to center Sean Bergenheim and Sim. The point-per-game first line is re-united. Cancel out the first lines and ... the Capitals are just a tad bit better.

As of pre-scheduling this thread, I'm not sure if/how much I'll be back to catch live. Either way, I'm looking forward to your reactions in the game thread -- which, depending on the score, I may have to peek at through the tiny gaps between my fingers.
