Saturday Roundup: We've Seen Atlanta Dish It Out, But Can They Take It?

No local coverage of the Caps today. A week-and-a-half in and our locals scribes are already out of things to say about this team? Not good. I don't have much to offer either, but did dig out the following note:

Alexander Ovechkin may be on the verge of history. If he registers a point against Tampa Sunday night, he'll tie Alexandre Daigle at seven for the most consecutive games with a point by a No. 1 overall pick to start a career. Of course, there's one thing Daigle has done that El Ocho likely never will.

Can't get enough AO? Head over to this new site chock full o' great video clips of #8.

In other news around the League:
  • Kudos to the Thrashers for scoring a goal against a team other than the Caps and for handling themselves with such class in their losing effort. Caps fans can take pride in the fact that even in a blowout loss, Glen Hanlon and his team are above the gutless garbage that Bob Hartley's squad displayed Friday night.
  • With his goal against Atlanta, Eric Lindros moved into 100th place all-time in goals scored. Who did he bump from the top 100? None other than Bobby Clarke. Sweet, sweet irony.
  • Richard Park skated on the Naslund-Morrison line in Vancouver's win over Minny and racked up three points. Quick! To your hockey pool's free agent list!
