Please direct questions to Dave Zelio (dzelio(at)ap.org). Plans subject to change. All times Eastern.MONDAY, JUNE 25HKN–FREE AGENCY-LOOKAHEADMovement at the NHL draft sets the stage for one of the most active free agency periods in recent history with John Tavares, Paul Stastny, Ryan O’Reilly, James van Riemsdyk, James Neal, David Perron, Rick Nash, Thomas Vane, Mike Green, Dan Hamhuis and Ian Cole among those potentially available.

By Hockey Writer Larry Lage. UPCOMING: 600 words, photos by noon.SUNDAY, JULY 1HKN–FREE AGENCY RDPJohn Tavares and a host of other players could be in play as free agency opens in the NHL. By Hockey Writer John Wawrow. UPCOMING: 700 words, photos by 7 p.m. Developing from free agency opening at noon.With:– HKN–FREE AGENCY-THE LATEST, real time updates throughout the day.– Team separates on merit.AP Sports The Washington Capitals got the pageantry of winning the Stanley Cup — the banner-raising, one last celebration with their fans — out of their system Wednesday when they opened the 2018-19 season, although a 7-0 win over the visiting Boston Bruins might have seemed like another chapter to the same party.“That’s a huge day for us,” Evgeny Kuznetzov, who had two goals, told NBCSN. “Our fans waited a long time to have a night like that.”Now comes perhaps a dose of reality. The Capitals play on the road on the second of back-to-back nights against a longtime rival that didn’t have to play Wednesday and is champing at the bit to greet them.Article continues below ...“The games are already pretty tense [url=http://www.montrealcanadiensteamshops.com/authentic-andrew-shaw-jersey]Andrew Shaw Jersey[/url] , and this game is going to be no different. It’s going to be a fun one to play in,” Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Brian Dumoulin said after his team practiced Wednesday at PPG Paints Arena, site of the showdown with the Capitals Thursday night. “Even though it’s just a regular-season game, I think the stakes are high.”Dumoulin seems probable to play after recovering from an upper-body injury late in the preseason.The Penguins and Capitals have been division rivals for decades. Pittsburgh had made a habit of beating Washington in the playoffs en route to winning the Cup. Washington flipped the script in the second round last spring and ousted the two-time defending Cup champions along the way to their first title.That left the Capitals thirsty for more.“As soon as you win the Cup, you don’t want to lose that feeling,” Washington captain Alex Ovechkin told the Washington Post. “You want to win more than one. As soon as you taste it, it’s kind of like a really good restaurant. You go there once, and you want to come back more than once because it’s great.”The Capitals will be without winger Tom Wilson, who was issued a 20-game suspension by the NHL Wednesday for a hit he delivered in a preseason game.Wilson was suspended three games during the playoff series with Pittsburgh last spring for delivering a hit that left Zach Aston-Reese with a broken jaw and a concussion.Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby was critical of Wilson before the length of the latest suspension was known.“He still chooses to make those hits,” Crosby said. “I’m sure the league’s well aware of that. It’s not the first time we’re talking about a hit that he made. … For whatever reason, he still decides to do that.“I just don’t know how many opportunities you need, you know? So, obviously, the point hasn’t been made yet.”Perhaps anticipating Wilson’s absence, the Capitals Tuesday claimed winger Dmitrij Jaskin off waivers from St. Louis [url=http://www.montrealcanadiensteamshops.com/authentic-antti-niemi-jersey]http://www.montrealcanadiensteamshops.com/authentic-antti-niemi-jersey[/url] , and he could make his Washington debut against the Penguins. Defenseman Michal Kempny is out because of a concussion.The Wilson suspension aside, both teams returned for the 2018-19 season largely intact, although Pittsburgh has touted the fact that its players got a longer offseason to rest and recover after two short summers following Cup wins.“I think everyone’s really, really excited,” Dumoulin said of the opening of the season. “You feel the energy throughout the team. I think everyone’s excited to start playing for something again and come together as a team — especially after last year, ending it on a sour note.”While Pittsburgh goaltender Matt Murray will be fresh, Washington coach Todd Reirden had not decided whether to go with his No. 1 goalie, Braden Holtby, a second night in a row against the Penguins after he picked up his 33rd career shutout Wednesday.“I definitely have spent some time on this one, probably as soon as the schedule came out,” Reirden said of the decision.
