Tuesday Roundup/Gameday: Caps @ Isles

[WashingtonCaps.com Preview - AP Preview]

The Caps have recalled defenseman Mike Green from Hershey. The third of three Caps first round picks in the 2004 entry draft, Green leads all rookie defensemen in the AHL with 25 points (5-20-25) in 38 games this season and has a plus-4 rating to go along with 65 penalty minutes. For more on Green's current shot with the big club, check out today's WaPo and WTimes.

For a look at the dollars-and-cents side of things, the Washington Business Journal has an article on the Caps in its current issue. Included therein:
The Capitals are sitting on a gold mine of talent in the rookie Ovechkin. Combined with a revamped marketing plan, a new practice facility and a regional push for more fans, the team is hoping to reclaim a prominent spot among the area's sports franchises.
Finally, on a programming note, due to what I'm sure will be an appropriately humble and respectful (not to mention eloquent and flawlessly-delivered) State of the Union Address tonight, the Caps game which was to air locally on NewsChannel8 won't. To see if your cable system will be carrying the game elsewhere on their system, check here.
