Saturday Roundup/Gamenight: Rangers @ Caps

[Gameday Preview]

The Caps welcome Jaromir Jagr and the Broadway Blueshirts to the MCI tonight as the hosts look to stop a season-high five-game losing streak that has largely coincided with a goal-scoring drought by Alexander Ovechkin. Tarik el-Bashir did all of his homework for Saturday on Thursday night so he could go out Friday night and party (see this article from yesterday previewing tonight's game and this article from today's paper, taken directly from the AP), but I neglected to link to this graphic yesterday which, for those of you who are better visual learners, depicts how much J.J. stunk (relatively speaking) when he was in Washington. Of course one cannot quantify locker room cancerousness (it's a word), so we'll have to go from painful memory on that one.

Unlike his cross-town cohort, Dave Fay did not get his work done ahead of time, and had to stay in last night (his mother is stern, but he'll thank her for it later) to write this piece.

In other Caps news, the team sent Jakub Klepis back to Hershey and will call up someone today, likely Graham Mink, to take his spot. Mink is second (to Eric Fehr) in scoring for the Bears and leads the team in goals with 14 goals and 7 assists in 22 games.
