Monday Roundup

How 'bout a nice open thread to help you all heal your groins, tail bones and undisclosed upper body parts? See, doesn't that feel better already?

Elsewhere 'Round the Rinks:

Happy 36th Birthday to Donald Brashear.... Verizon Center isn't the only NHL rink with ice problems (h/t to KK on the link).... Plenty of Karl Alzner coverage (notably here and here, with a bit more here that includes a mention of Josh Godfrey) in the wake of the World Juniors.... Hey! The Caps won something completely meaningless!... Finally, on this date back in 1989, Mike Ridley assisted on all six Caps goals in a 6-3 win over Chicago. Rids' six helpers are still a single-game team record.
