A trio of Saturday transactions for the Caps, as they've reportedly claimed Marco Sturm off waivers from the L.A. Kings, waived D.J. King and recalled Jay Beagle (with Mathieu Perreault reportedly set to take a night off). Sturm's stats for the season:


GP G A P +/- PIM PPG SHG GWG SOG
Marco Sturm 17 4 5 9 6 17 1 0 0 27

Chances are, these moves are just the beginning of what's sure to be a busy next 50 hours for Caps' GM George McPhee.
