Capitals tonight

November 18, 1996

Opponent: Florida Panthers

Site: Miami Arena

Time: 7: 30

TV/Radio: None/WWLG (1360), WTEM (570)

Outlook: The last time these two teams met, Nov. 7, the Capitals were outplayed in the opening period, wasted a terrific goaltending performance by Olie Kolzig and lost, 4-2. Tonight, the game plan is to come out with strong forechecking, get the same strong performance from Kolzig and beat the No. 1 team in the Eastern Conference. The Caps (9-9) come in off a 3-1 victory over Montreal, while the Panthers (11-2-5) were tied 3-3 by the Islanders on Friday. This is Washington's first chance this season to go above .500. Caps D Brendan Witt (flu) will not make the trip.
