Lukas Rousek was the story of the night in the Flyers’ game against Buffalo. Rousek scored both goals to give the Sabers the win. Philly had a chance to tie the game, but goaltender Malcom Subban stopped all shots on goal in the second half.
The big question for the Capitals to start the season is how the absence of Nicklas Backstrom will affect this team. The great Swedish center is recovering from hip surgery. These pre-season matches will be a great opportunity for young players to gain momentum. All eyes will be on forward Connor McMichael. He has played mainly in the center in his young career and is looking to move up the ranks.
The Caps will be looking to bounce back from that overtime loss where Vinnie Hinostroza managed to score the game-clinching goal with just 1:15 remaining. How will these young teams react in this Eastern Conference game?
