The next time the Chicago Blackhawks face-off against the Washington Capitals it will be New Year’s Day and the game will be outdoors at Nationals Stadium in Washington D.C., but tonight these two teams will battle at the United Center.
Last year’s game against the Capitals was a very entertaining game with Brandon Bollig scoring his first regular season goal and after the Blackhawks giving up 3 goals on the penalty kill came back to defeat the Captials on opening night.
This year the Capitals are suffering through some growing pains with new coach Barry Trotz at the helm. The Trotz system is a boring one so we should all hope that the Capitals don’t fully grasp the system until after the Winter Classic.
