Thursday Caps Clips

Rob Carr

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: It's August. Know any good jokes?

Your savory breakfast links:

  • The dog days of August, indeed. As an example, the post you are reading right now was very nearly titled: "Thursday Caps Clip". [Dump -n- Chase]
  • Really interesting stuff measuring individual Caps' quality of competition by opponents' time on ice. [RLS]
  • The return of the once-and-future Patrick Division means the Caps and Flyers will once again get to agree to be very disagreeable. [Peerless, dropping knowledge.]
  • Four Caps prospects squared off in yesterday's WJC evaluation camp. In a 4-0 win for Sweden over Team USA, Andre Burakovsky notched 1G 1A, Christian Djoos had an assist, and Connor Carrick and Riley Barber had no points but are receiving good marks for their play. [USoH]
  • Make sure your exclamation point and paren keys are in good working order, then batten your hatches and disable your Twitter feed - it is Tweet Like Ovi Day. Best. [RMNB]
  • Name that still gives Caps fans chills (and not the good kind): Sasha Pokulok. [ESPN $]
  • Finally, happy 57th birthday to Gary Rissling and happy 63rd birthday to Greg Polis.
