Monday Caps Clips: Shot Out

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Caps replay the game with Buffalo from two weeks ago with fewer shots and the same result, Miller's ridiculous save on Grabovski, a prospect roundup and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • If you missed any of this weekend's Clips, un-miss them here. Especially go back and read about Mikhail Grabovski's agent and negotiations for a new contract.
  • Recaps and other assorted musings on yesterday's shootout loss from us (and the night in quotes), , Monumental video (Oates, Ovechkin, Chimera, Grubauer, Ward, Nolan, Sabres players), NHL.com,  WaPo (gamer, blog), CSNW (gamer, blog, blog), Frankovic, RMNB, Peerless, and from Shuffalo, Die by the Blade.

  • Norman Chad tunes in to hockey once a year or so, which is more than I usually tune in to his columns. [WaPo]
  • Down a level, Riley Gill notched his first AHL win in Atlantic City with a 4-1 Hershey victory over Alex Urbom and the Albany Devils. [Patriot-News, SHoE]
  • A quick look at some of the Caps' prospects:
    • Andre Burakovsky returned from the WJC in a scoring mood, going 1-5-6 in his first three games back.  Unfortunately, yesterday Windsor forward Cristiano DiGiacinto "...thought it was a good opportunity to make a hit on a top player," and Burakovsky left the game with an upper body injury. (DiGiacinto left the game with an unsportsmanlike and game misconduct; the OHL may review for additional discipline.)  Erie coach Kris Knoblauch says he will hold Burra out of practice Monday and Tuesday as a precaution. [Windsor Star]
    • Riley Barber had a 4-point weekend with three goals and one assist in two games, but his offense was not sufficient in back-to-back losses to Western Michigan. With 14-18-32 in 20 games, he remains the points-and-goals leader in the NCHC, and is tied for 4th overall in the NCAA.  [Hustle Belt]
    • Madison Bowey's Kelowna Rockets defeated Jaynen Rissling's Calgary Hitmen in a game between the WHL's top Eastern and Western Conference teams.  Bowey had a goal and a +2 on the night, but Rissling was not available to play due to LBI. [Calgary Sun]
    • Chandler Stephenson's Regina Pats also had a big victory against the Rissling-less Hitmen this week. Stephenson potted his 20th goal of the season and also holds the SHG scoring lead with six. [Regina Leader-Post]
    • Caleb Herbert broke a four-game goal-less streak and snared a piece of all three of Minnesota-Duluth's goals in Saturday's game as the Bulldogs swept Nebraska-Omaha at the weekend. [Duluth News Tribune]
    • The Cody Eakin trade is the gift that keeps on giving. No, not that trade. This trade. --> [Southwest Booster]
  • Finally, happy birthday to Mike Palmateer, who hits the big 6-0 today plus a stick salute to the memory of Art Ross and his one (yes, really) NHL goal.  He would have turned 96 today.
