Ovie (far left) celebrates his big day.

The wins continue to pile up for our divisional neighbors in D.C., this time defeating the Ottawa Senators 7-4 on the efforts of Alexander Ovechkin's hat trick. The Caps are now 17 games over .500 (technically) and barring a catastrophic injury, on their way to a solid Southeast championship. Brave words, eh?

The un-Disneyfied water fowl hope for this from their opponent on Monday.

  • Buffalo @ Anaheim, 10p. With a win, the Sabres will hit 59 points in 51 games, increasing their lead over the Hurricanes by four and Florida by five. Shout out to D.O. at Die by the Blade for sublime open thread action, and say a quiet prayer for Gordon Bombay at lunch.
