Week 3 for the Washington Capitals brings a change in climate. Week 2 had them paying visits to cities with dry, warm-weather and defensive-oriented teams; this week they’ll be hosting a trio of clubs from colder climes who can bring a deluge of offense before heading off to the Windy City. The four teams on the schedule might be fun to watch, but perhaps not so much fun to play, as we will find out.
Colorado Avalanche (Monday/5:00 pm)
The Avs will arrive in Washington for the first game of their first road trip of the season.
