  • To refresh your memory, this is the fourth meeting between the Caps and Rangers on the season, with the Caps taking the last two games by 4-2 and 6-5 counts after dropping the first 4-3.
  • Notes from Friday's practice... [Dump n' Chase, CI]
  • ... and from Saturday's - looks as if Eric Belanger might be taking Brendan Morrison's spot on the second line. [@TarikElBashir]
  • On Scott Walker and his Caps debut. [WaPo, CSN Washington]
  • Mike Wise on the Caps' deadline deals: "There is one other concern no one is talking about: [team chemistry.]" Yeah, no one's talking about it, other than the Coach, the beat writer at your paper and just about everyone else that covers the team more than bi-monthly. [WaPo]
  • Tom Boswell also weighs in on the deals. [WaPo]
  • By the numbers, the Caps sure did help themselves on Wednesday. [Puck Prospectus]
  • Is the Caps' goaltending good enough? [RMNB]
  • The Caps are awfully deep from a fantasy perspective as well (and that's not a Brooks Laich reference, ladies - fantasy hockey). [ESPN]
  • It sounds as if the Caps won't be getting third jerseys any time soon. Standing ovation from my wallet (and perhaps my eyes). [Puck Drawn]
  • A look at concussions in hockey, featuring Jamie Heward and a reference to "reckless superstar Alexander Ovechkin." [Winnipeg Free Press]
  • Speaking of slams from up north, Roy MacGregor had a good (and timely!) one yesterday. [Globe and Mail]
  • Stan Kasten on the Winter Classic. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Hotties for Alex! [Examiner]
  • Good stuff on Brian Pothier. [Lord Stanley's Blog, News & Observer]
