Tonight’s opponents are the Washington Capitals. The Caps are leading the division – in points, but not in points percentage (That’s still the Bruins – barely). This will be the first time Zdeno Chara will be in the TD Garden as an adversary since he was with Ottawa. The team is looking healthy.
Vitek Vanacek will be in net.
