Thursday Roundup/Gamenight: Caps @ Wild

[NHL.com Preview - WashingtonCaps.com Preview - Official Gameday Thread]

Hey, the Caps finally get to play again. The WaPo details the (hopefully) rapid ascension of Mike Green to Orr-like status (right now he's at about Pete, hopefully heading in the direction of Bobby) while the WTimes for some reason has a piece on Donald Brashear (or, as I like to call him, Donald Brashear).

Elsewhere 'Round the Rinks:

  • Is it just me or is Radek Bonk just about the worst hockey player you've ever seen?
  • Not a bad score for a dude with Hepatitis.
  • If you knew that entering this season, Chris Osgood had more regular season wins than Dominik Hasek, you probably could have won a few free drinks. Now you'll just have to hope that the cute guy in the corner wants to buy you one.
