  • Japers' Rink Radio hits the interwaves at 10 Eastern. Russell and Pepper welcome CSN's Alan May to the program. On tap: leadership, streaks both good and bad, and a look at Scotty Hannan, four games in. [JRR]
  • Previews of tonight's clash with Colorado from Vogs, NHL.com (Hunter), SB Nation DC, RtR, RLS and KOL, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Mile High Hockey for more coverage from the other side of tonight's match up.
  • The flu bug has hit. Hard. [CI (Carrera)]
  • Scoring goals is key to winning games. And that goes double if you're the Washington Capitals. [WaPo (Carrera)]
  • Mike Green, Alex Ovechkin, and Jason Chimera share their thoughts on the scoring slump.  [CSN Washington video, Elliot in the Morning audio]
  • Of low points, lost rooms, and panic buttons. [Box Seats, Caps News Network, Dump 'n Chase]
  • Mathieu Perreault on playing in D.C. [CSN Washington (video)]
  • Hannan (and I'm paraphrasing): "I'm just happy to be here, taking it one game at a time, hope I can help the tea... OMG what's with all these cameras following me all over the place!"  [NHL Live! (mp3)]
  • Gentlemen, let's take this outside:
  • The Caps are beating the Wiz on the telly... barely. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • The AHL has announced the captains for the 2011 All-Star Game in Hershey. Fittingly, two former Bears will return to the Giant Center to face off under the Calder Cup banners they each helped raise. Congratulations and welcome back, Alexandre Giroux  (2009, 2010) and Mark Wotton (2006).  [The Hershey Bears]
  • On a related note, Giroux scored two goals against the Manitoba Moose on Friday night. They were career goals #317 & 318, moving him to number 14 on the AHL all-time scoring list, and putting him just ahead of ... Bruce Boudreau. [The AHL, via Twitter]
  • Cody Eakin has been in beast mode on his way to Team Canada camp - 6 goals and 3 assists for 9 points in his final three games before leaving for the national team.  Also, he's been playing his Swift Current season with a torn hip muscle and a "badly infected elbow."  [Taking Note]
  • Finally, today's Living Social deal is 50% off a ticket to "Greenlife Rock for Charity." Pretty cool. [Living Social]
