Boyd In For Stephenson; Notes From Capitals Practice In Toronto


The Capitals made their way from Western Canada to Toronto on Sunday. The team  enjoyed a couple of days off in the Vancouver area following their Wild West 6-5 shootout comeback victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Friday. The Capitals conclude their season-long five-game road trip tomorrow evening against the Maple Leafs.

PRACTICE
The Capitals lines this afternoon at the Ford Performance Center in Toronto, Ontario:

It looks like Travis Boyd will get the start tomorrow night against the Leafs, in place of Chandler Stephenson.

In his first game with the Capitals this season, Friday night in Vancouver, Boyd registered one assist. In 53 games with Washington last season, Boyd recorded 20 points (5g, 15a).

No official information yet on starting netminder for tomorrow night, but it’s anticipated that Braden Holtby will get the start.

SHAVINGS

    • The game will mark the Capitals’ final game in October. Currently on a six-game point streak (5-0-1), the Capitals are looking to improve on their 8-2-3 record and their 6-1-1 record on the road. The Capitals lead the NHL with 13 points and six road wins.
    • Should the Capitals earn a win tomorrow, their nine wins in the month of October will tie a franchise high (1991-92: nine wins), and their potential 21 points would set a new franchise record. The Capitals’ current 19 points are tied for the most points in October in franchise history (2009-10).

    Super update, Jon!

    Bring on the Maple Leafs! If the Caps win it will be a great Rock-tober for the Caps, and Coach Reirden will have proved me wrong. And that’s good
