Saturday Caps Clips: Hershey Kisses Playoffs Goodbye

Paul Frederiksen-USA TODAY Sport

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Hershey's playoff push comes to an end with their loss to Norfolk, a handful of Caps are Minsk-bound and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • They got a little closer than their parent club, but Hershey's playoff push will also fall just short after dropping last night's must-win game to Norfolk... [Patriot-News]
  • ...which probably makes the first question in this week's Bears mailbag somewhat irrelevant. But read it anyway, because there's other good stuff in there. [Patriot-News]
  • Forget those 51 goals he scored last season - the Caps' biggest problem, obviously, is Alex Ovechkin. Obviously. Duh. [ESPN ($)]
  • The grades are in for Ovechkin and his fellow teammates making up the team's top-six forwards. Wait... no Jay Beagle?? [WaPo]
  • Could it be "Game Over" for Mike Green in Washington? [NBC4]
  • And who else could be on their way out? [CSNW]
  • First-time assistant coach Calle Johansson has taken some criticism for his work with the team's defensive corps this year; that defensive corps has his back. [CSNW]
  • Congrats to Troy Brouwer, Jason Chimera and Joel Ward, who will be taking their career years over to Minsk to play for Canada at the World Championships... [Caps, CSNW]
  • ...where they will face off against Ovechkin as he suits up for Team Russia yet again. [PHT]
  • His Erie Otters are down 0-2 in their conference finals against Guelph, but Caps' prospect Andre Burakovsky has been dominant (and added another goal last night). [RMNB]
  • Behind the scenes of Joel Ward's ceremonial pitch from Nats Park Thursday night. [Monumental video]
