Justin K. Aller

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: There are fifteen games yet to play, evaluating Evgeny, Caps in tuxes and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • The Caps were off yesterday, and are scheduled to get back to work at 11:00 this morning at Kettler. Here's the Capitals Report, with 15 games to go in the regular season. [Monumental Video]
  • Hey, the Caps have a history of strong season finishes. Now would be a pretty good time to hit the gas... [WashTimes, CSNW]
  • ... to the tick-tock and you don't stop. [WaPo, NBC4]
  • Talent is as talent does, per Brooks Laich in his weekly radio gig. But winning > talent, or something. [106.7 The Fan]
  • Is Evgeny Kuznetsov's short contract concerning? Not particularly, sez GMGM... [CSNW]
  • ... and Kuzya might well be the difference between postseason/no-postseason for this Caps squad. How do you say "No pressure, kid." in Russian? [ESPN, and again ($)]
  • Back in early February, goalie coach Olie Kolzig spoke to the Caps' fan club about, well goalie coach stuff. [Caps Outsider]
  • Speaking of goalies, Philipp Grubauer's new Caps bucket appears to have been salvaged from the "stars" bin after a tragic Weagle factory explosion. [RMNB, daveart]
  • The Hershey Bears swapped veteran forwards with Philly affiliate Adirondack Phantoms.  Fare-thee-well Derek Whitmore, and welcome Kris Newbury. Oh, and Garrett Mitchell has resumed skating with the team as he continues to rehab his busted shoulder. [Patriot-News, and again]
  • "... we already check the blogs a few times a day," he forgot to add. [examiner.com]
  • Strangers in a strange land all speak the international language of puck and hopefully peace. [NYT]
  • Caps Casino Night is always a red-rocking good time. [RMNB, Caps Outsider]
  • Finally, happy 52nd birthday to Grant Martin and happy 45th to Kevin "Killer" Kaminski.
