- Goaltending: Will Jose Theodore return to the more high caliber player he was earlier in his career? Or will we get to see exciting sensation Semyon Varlamov become the day-to-day starter?
- Mike Green: Can he return to his 2008-09 regular season form that scored 31 goals, had 42 assists and achieved a +/- of +24?
- Crowding the Crease: Will the addition of Mike Knuble add one of the final links to the puzzle that will bring the Cup to DC?
Only time will tell and it's a long season. Every Caps fan -- and every DC sports fan for that matter -- should be excited. Time to Rock the Red! Let's go Caps! Prediction for tonight: Caps - 2; B's - 1
