Last Saturday, Wizards TV play-by-play announcer Steve Buckhantz's father passed away. There were many tweets in support for him, including this one from TNT's Ernie Johnson:

Since Buckhantz is out of commission due to bereavement, CSN's Ben Standig announced that Capitals TV play-by-play announcer Joe Beninati will announce tonight's Wizards game against the Hornets:

The Capitals are currently at home and will host the Los Angeles Kings Tuesday night.

Our condolences go to Buck as he attends to his family, and it will be cool to see Beninati announcing a Wizards game.
