This game will mark the return of Olaf Kolzig to Washington where he played all of his 16 NHL years. Ollie The Goalie is very emotional about his game as it's gonna be the first time he'll be wearing the visitor's uniform in D.C.
Brent Johnson will be between the pipes for tonight's matchup.
Johnson will be playing in his fourth straight game. He's done everything in his power to take advantage of Jose Theodore's slow start to the season. Johnson currently has a 3-1-2 record with a 2.12 GAA and .929 save percentage. Johnson was Kolzig's back-up last season...
Look for a goaltending duel tonight, especially since Lecavalier and Ovechkin are off to slow starts this season.
My prediction: Capitals win it 4-2, with Ovechkin scoring a pair of goals.
