Thursday Caps Clips: Slip Sliding Away

Bruce Bennett

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Not all that much to say, is there?

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Peerless sits in the reviewing stand and reviews March's Death March. [Rink]
  • News and notes from yesterday out at Kettler:
  • Prepare for the gnashing of teeth and rending of garments:
  • Good news!  Contract discussions are ongoing between the Caps and Grabovski's agent.  However, there is a troublesome clause about wanting to win a Stanley Cup that could be gumming up the works. [CSNW]
  • Two words: Retail therapy. [RMNB]
  • With six games left, Ovechkin has 48 goals. Can he pot two more to make the half-century? [CSNW]
  • The next generation of Caps players are working their way up, and looking good while doing so:
    • The team announced that they have signed their 2013 second-round pick, defenseman Madison Bowey, to a three year ELC beginning in the 2014-2015 season. [@m_bows4NHL.com, RMNB, Northland News]
    • Andre Burakovsky had a stellar March; so stellar he was named the OHL Player of the Month. [OHL]
    • Caleb Herbert played his first pro game last night with Hershey.  He tallied a primary assist to Jeff Taffe on his second pro shift, scored the game-tying goal on his very first shot, and was named the #1 star in the victory which put Hershey back into playoff contention. Story. Book. [Patriot-News, SHoE, @ScottStuccio]
  • Get well soon, JoeB. We miss your dulcet tones! [RMNB]
  • Finally, happy 31st birthday to Joey Crabb. Today is also the one-year anniversary of the Forsberg/Erat trade. Discuss.
