The Scene From Saturday’s Practice at Kettler (Video)

Following a tough loss the night before to the Penguins, the Capitals returned to the ice at Kettler Capitals Iceplex to put the defeat behind them and look ahead to the Vegas Golden Knights. The Capitals will host the Golden Nights as part of their traditional Super Bowl Sunday matinee at Capital One Arena. If you couldn’t get to Kettler on Saturday morning, we have some highlights from the practice videos for your viewing pleasure. 

When the team took the ice, they began working on individual passing drills. With Kettler crazy busy on a Saturday morning there were no rink changes.

When line rushes began, Eveny Kuznetsov scored a goal just like he did the night before.

Here is the fourth line of Devante Smith-Pelly, Jay Beagle and Alex Chiasson taking part in a full-rink 3-on-2 drill.

Then it was on to special teams. Here we have the second power play unit. The power play came up empty in three opportunities in Pittsburgh last night, while the Penguins went 3-for-4. The special teams look to improve as they go up against the best team in the Western Conference. While the Penguins are tops in the league on the man-advantage, Vegas is ranked 14th on the power play.
