  • A hockey game pitting Washington against Hershey? Never say never... say 66 years ago. [OFB]
  • A post on why you should love Keith Aucoin... obviously written before last night's game. [Homer McFanboy]
  • Abe Pollin went with "Washington Capitals" after holding a "name-the-team contest." Abe's fortunate he held the contest before that first season or AO would be an All-Star for the Washington Skating Turds. [mental_floss]
  • Apparently, Alex Ovechkin "has become notorious around the NHL" for slew-footing, and Zdeno Chara was "was happy to see the league finally buckle down on the back-to-back Hart Trophy winner." "Notorious?" I'm calling B.S. [NESN]
  • A one-stop shop for all of your Caps-related H1N1 joke needs. [Peerless]
  • "If you can skate and survive the occasional lockout, National Hockey League ref is hardly a bad job. Refs make between $110,000 and $255,000 while linesmen earn from $72,000 to $162,000." [CNN.com]
  • Of course, it's not all fun and games... just ask Pat Dapuzzo (heads up: very heavy post). [FanHouse]

  • Per the Hockey Hall of Fame, on this date back in 1998, "Capitals' Rick Tabaracci recorded his 14th career shutout and Flames' Ken Wregget got the 9th shutout of his career as Washington tied 0-0, at Calgary."
