Washington will turn to goaltender Michal Neuvirth Tuesday night, as the Capitals look for a second victory in three tries on the current homestand. Neuvirth, despite a loss to Toronto last Thursday at Air Canada Centre, is 4-2-1 lifetime against the Leafs. Nicklas Backstrom carries a four-game assist streak into Tuesday's game, as the Caps look for win number three of the season.
Below is my game-day conversation with head coach Adam Oates, as we discuss special teams, Mike Ribeiro, and playing a team that played the night before when your team is rested. Airtime tonight on 106.7 The Fan, 1500 AM and the Capitals Radio Network is 6:45.
