Thursday Caps Clips: A Locked-Out Thanksgiving

Richard Wolowicz

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: In which the Caps call up a coach from the minors on Thanksgiving Eve

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Some late-breaking news from last night: Adam Oates and his coaching staff are returning to DC.
    • Oates: "I got to meet some of the young guys in the organization, and I got to get some head coaching experience." [Dump 'n' Chase]
    • Mark French: "I think everybody learned a lot in the time we were together. I thought all four individuals made it work as well as it possibly could." [Patriot-News]
    • Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins 4 (30 shots on goal), Hershey Bears 0 (15 shots on goal). [SHoE, @WashCaps]
  • Yay, lockout:
  • Finally, five years ago today a Hershey Bears head coach bid his team farewell, checked the directions to DC, and peeled out of the Giant Center parking lot. Uncanny. [Japers' Rink]
  • Congrats are in order for the ECHL Reading Royals, who used the occasion of a visit by the South Carolina Stingrays to post their tenth straight win. [@RRoyals]
  • We at the Rink wish everyone a healthy, happy, and still-hopeful Thanksgiving.
