Red Wings Vs. Capitals Game Time, TV Schedule, Announcers And More

The last two undefeated teams in the NHL will square off Saturday evening at the Verizon Center when the Washington Capitals take on the Detroit Red Wings. The Capitals are looking to become just the 10th team in NHL history to win its first seven games of the season. Here is what you need to know about the game:

Who: Washington Capitals (6-0-0, 12 points) vs. Detroit Red Wings (5-0-0, 10 points)

Where: Verizon Center, Washington D.C.

When: 7 p.m.

TV Information: Locally, the game will be broadcast on Comcast Sports Net, with Joe Beninati and Craig Laughlin. The game is also available on the NHL Network.

Radio: Capitals Radio 1500.

Notable developments: Since looking a bit shaky to begin the season, goaltender Tomas Vokoun has allowed just five goals in his last 247 minutes of work, stopping 137 of the last 142 shots he has faced. The Red Wings' last visit to Verizon Center in 2010 ended in a 3-2 loss to the Capitals, and Detroit has not won in D.C. since 2005.
