The red hot San Jose Sharks come to town against the Washington Capitals. The San Jose Sharks have been one of the more consistent teams in the league. San Jose will travel to Washington to begin the first leg of their 3-game road trip in the east. The Sharks are 6-4-0 in their last 10 games. The Sharks are currently sitting in 4th place in the Western conference with 64 points.
The Capitals will host the Sharks on what some could say to be one of the hardest scheduled back to back games this year. The Capitals will play their first game in Washington against San Jose and than travel to Pittsburgh to face rival Sydney Crosby and company. The Capitals are still struggling to stay alive in the playoff rest. They are 3-4-4 in their last ten. One point separates 5th-8th in the Eastern Conference. The Capitals will try to solve the mystery behind Sharks goal tender Antti Neimi.
The Capitals have made no sign on who will start Tuesday night in net against the Sharks.
