The Caps open with the Carolina Hurricanes at home, Saturday, October 8 at 7:00 PM EST and will be shown live on CSN-DC. After that, the Caps play once again at home against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday night before traveling to Pittsburgh to take on the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Here's the full schedule for this week and next:

Monday, October 10th vs. Tampa Bay Lightning, 7:00 PM

Thursday, October 13th at Pittsburgh Penguins, 7:00 PM
