  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night's comeback win from us, WaPo (no post-game blog sure does make you miss Tarik, no?), Vogs, DCEx, Ed Frankovic, OFB, Peerless, RMNB, FFODC and Cap Centre.
  • Jason Chimera wins his first fight as a Caps. Emphasis on first. []
  • Is Alex Ovechkin "so upset about having to pay 18 per cent of his salary to escrow he is prepared to pondering [sic] leaving the Capitals after this season"? I'm preparing to ponder thinking about possibly considering perhaps maybe answering that question. [Sportsnet]
  • It's ok, Halpy. Just come on out and say it: you wish you were still here. No need to be passive aggressive about it. [FFODC]
  • Seriously. [Rock The]

  • Per the HHoF, on this date back in 1993 "Washington's goaltender Don Beaupre played in his 500th NHL game, and recorded a 3-0 shutout over the Islanders at New York. Beaupre became the 26th goalie in NHL history to reach 500 games." Nine years later, "Adam Oates become the 8th player in NHL history to pick up 1,000 career assists, and Olaf Kolzig recorded his second consecutive shutout (the 24th of his career) in the Capitals 1-0 win in overtime against the visiting Boston Bruins. "
  • Finally, happy 45th birthday to Alan May and happy - what, 25th? - to Gary at OFB.
