The Washington Capitals have made several moves in preparation for tonight's game against the Boston Bruins, and some changes to the lineup might be in order tonight.
-The Washington Capitals have signed D Steve Oleksy (not Olesky) of the AHL Hershey Bears to a 3-year deal worth $1.6 million and recalled him to Washington. According to Adam Oates, the right-handed defenseman, who leads the Bears in fights and penalty minutes, is definitely not going to fight tonight in his NHL debut against the Big Bad Bruins Oates says "he helps us with the balance" on defense. He will skate on the third pairing with Tom Poti, meaning left-handed Jeff Schultz, he of just one NHL fight, will be sitting out.
-Goalie Braden Holtby refuses to name the dirty players on the Bruins, instead calls the entire team dirty. He will be in net tonight behind defenseman Steve Oleksy, who he says will keep those cheap-shotting Bruins honest.
