Tuesday Caps Clips: League Drops a Deuce on Orlov

Rob Carr

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Dmitry Orlov gets suspended, the Caps try to regroup after a tough loss and the trade deadline draws nigh.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • The Caps were off yesterday, and are scheduled to get back to work at 10:30 this morning out at Kettler. Here's Your Capitals Minute for today. [Capitals Voice]
  • One skater who won't be with them is Dmitry Orlov, who was suspended yesterday for two games for his hit on Brayden Schenn in Sunday's game against the Flyers. [Rink, Puck Daddy, WaPo, CSNW, Patriot-News, RMNB]
  • One skater who will be with them is Jack Hillen, recalled from his rehab assignment in Hershey yesterday and ostensibly ready to step in for Orlov. [CSNW]
  • Other leftovers from Sunday's brutal loss. [Rink (Clyde's Shots), WaPo, WashTimes, NBC4]
  • Looking back at a week that was largely up... until it was down. [Rink]
  • Who's the team's best option for that prime gig riding shotgun on the Backstrom-Ovechkin line? [DSP]
  • Speaking of Ovi, he plays no defense. Does it matter? [CSNW]
  • Matchmaker, matchmaker make me a match, find me a find, catch me... Halak? [SI]
  • "I’d go crazy if I was a Capitals fan." Why yes, we are mad lot, aren't we? [ESPN ($)]
  • What if there were an impact forward that the Caps could add at the deadline that wouldn't cost them any assets? Well, there just might be. [CSNW]
  • Is trading Martin Erat Mission: Impossible? [THW]
  • How sideways are things going in Hershey? Their three stars of the week include... no players. [Patriot-News]
  • Finally, if you missed Craig Laughlin telling the story of how he found out he'd been drafted when he told it during Thursday night's game, here's your chance to unmiss it. [RMNB]
