Friday Caps Clips

Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sport

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Hockey is coming, better know Barry Trotz, Willy sez "bring it", and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • The Caps released their preseason schedule - they'll have two chances to say hello to old friend Michal Neuvirth, but won't be facing usual preseason playmate Nashville. [NHL.com, DSP, CSNW]
  • Getting to know new bench boss Barry Trotz. Fun facts - as a Caps scout he helped draft Olie Kolzig and Byron Dafoe. And he was once Killer Kaminski's landlord. [Dump 'n' Chase]
  • Tom Wilson liked his taste of the NHL last season, and feels he's ready for a bigger bite. [CSNW]
  • This week's #JapersMailbag took a swing at P.K. Subban, the Caps' draft strategies, the evergreen blueliners lament, and goalies-a-go-go. [Rink]
  • St. Louis. April 8. It mattered. [Peerless]
  • :: checks watch :: [WBJ]
  • Nathan Walker is back home Down Under, helping to grow the game in Oz. Suggestion: Ditching those ugly orange and black sweaters would be a great start. [Bega District News]
  • Fun and amateur dentistry with фотошоп. [photoyrok.ru]
  • Come dancing, it's only natural. [super.ru]
  • Finally, happy 37th birthday to Joe Corvo. I guess.
