Today’s Storyline

A nemesis returns – Vancouver’s Roberto Luongo is one of the best goaltenders in the league and seems to play his best against Washington . The Capitals know Luongo well from his days as a Florida Panther, and have not posted a win against him since Feb. 27, 2004 ( Washington is 0-7-3 against him since, including two shutouts). Luongo and the Canucks topped the Caps 3-2 last year in Verizon Center . Luongo is 2-0-0 this year and has a .947 save percentage and a 1.94 GAA in wins against the Calgary Flames. The Caps enter tonight’s contest after taking 43 and 34 shots in their first two games of the season en route to scoring four goals in each.
