Two of the best possession teams in the league face off Friday night as the Capitals visit the United Center for a matchup against the Blackhawks. Like Chicago, Washington hasn't exactly converted that into great success, but to an even larger degree -- the Caps have lost five straight games. So hopefully we can keep bringing the pain to D.C. with another big with over an opponent from the East, and keep the momentum rolling, Sharpie or not.

So here's your first thread of the night, let's get a winner.

Go 'Hawks!
