  • Our Fearless Leader checked in with the fine folk at Illegal Curve Radio. [Sports Radio 1290]
  • Prospect playoff update:
    • Stanislav Galiev had his goal-a-game streak snapped as the St. John Sea Dogs dropped a 3-2 decision to the Victoriaville Tigres.  This was their first loss in the 2011 playoffs, and their first loss on home ice in regulation.  For the entire season.  The best-of-seven series is tied at one.
    • Cody Eakin had no points and was on-ice for both goals against, but the Kootenay Ice prevailed and defeated the Saskatoon Blades 3-2 in their building in overtime.  That puts the Ice up 2-0 and the series moves back to Cranbrook. 
    • Samuel Carrier had three assists and was on-ice for four of the MAINEiacs' goals in a 6-2 drubbing of the Montreal Junior.  The series is tied at 1-all.
  • Finally, wishing Enrico Ciccone a very happy 41st birthday.
  • Got one more, actually.  As the regular season draws to a close, and with the kind indulgence of JP, I would like to thank the folks we regularly link here, particularly those who have been writing previews and recaps and taking photos of the games over the course of a full season.  We have enjoyed seeing the Caps through your words and pictures, and we look forward to sharing "the second season" with Caps Nation as well.
