Tuesday Caps Clips: Bad Blood Bruin

Jared Wickerham

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Recaps of last night's fight-filled overtime loss, Connor Carrick signs, projecting the Caps' lineup and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night's overtime loss from Vogs, WaPo, NHL.com (and highlights), Monumental video (OatesCarrickHoltbyGrabovskiVolpattiWey), Monumental picsAPESPN BostonCSNNE (and again).
  • Shaking out the team's lineup (and be sure to check out our Venn depth charts). [WaPo]
  • News and notes from game day out at Kettler:
  • A physically and mentally rejuvenated Mike Green is a scary (for the rest of the League) Mike Green. [NHL.com]
  • Rejuvenated Green finally gets a bit of respect on a ranking of this year's defensive crop. [SportsGrid]
  • Oddly enough, John Erskine didn't make that particular list - but he is ready for top-four workload once again. No word on whether we're ready for him to be ready. [WaPoPeerless]
  • As the Caps' training camp draws to a close, the Hershey Bears are getting ready to open theirs under the guidance of new head coach Mike Haviland. [Patriot-News]
  • Gary Bettman says the vast majority of NHL GMs like the hybrid icing. Problem there, of course, is that the players have to like it, too. [PHT]
  • Previews and predictions:
    • Interactive team-by-team previews for the season... [Slam]
    • ...looking at the shiny new Metropolitan Division... [USA Today]
    • ...and predicting the top 200 NHL scorers. [THW]
  • The scientific march towards opening night continues... [Peerless (eightseven)]
  • Yes, there are probably too many outdoor games. But maybe we should all just accept it and enjoy. [Puck Daddy]
  • Three better locations for the Winter Classic than DC. Because when I think marketable players and interesting locales, I immediately think... New Jersey. [THW]
  • Speaking of the Winter Classic, the Caps' marketing team is already using the 2015 game to sell season tickets. And to be fair, they'd be crazy not to. [Bog]
  • The new Monumental Rewards program gives season ticketholders points that can be redeemed for all kinds of cool stuff - including an exclusive Mike Green bobblehead. [Caps Outsider]
  • Finally, happy 25th birthday to Karl Alzner.
