  • Previews of tonight's game against Buffalo (which, by the way, will air on CSN-plus locally) from Vogs, NHL.com (Rosen), Peerless and RtR, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Die By The Blade for more coverage from the other side of tonight's match up.

  • The Caps appear to be well-stocked in goal, but... [CSN Washington (Masisak)]
  • "George McPhee, asked what would happen if another GM called about Semyon Varlamov, Michal Neuvirth or Braden Holtby? 'We're not trading any of them.'" Since he can't impact demand, it's good to see GMGM reducing supply in an attempt to drive up the price for some of his most valuable assets. [CBC (Friedman)]
  • Speaking of McPhee, he's not thrilled with the team's performance so far and (unrelated) says Varly could be in Hershey for weeks (bet the under). [NHL.com (Rosen)]

  • Jason Chimera is no stranger to outdoor games. [NHL.com (Morreale)]
  • On Alexander Semin being left off the All-Star ballot. [Mike Holden's blog]
  • Wondering when you can catch the preview of HBO's 24/7 "Road to the NHL Winter Classic"? Wonder no more. [Penguins]
