  • To refresh your memory, this is the fifth of six meetings on the season between the two Southeast Division rivals, with the Caps taking the first four by scores of 5-44-3, 8-1 and 5-2.
  • The Caps are saying the right things, but talk is inexpensive. Or something. [WaPo, RMNB]
  • It's hard to blame Bruce Boudreau for being a bit snippy upon being asked about his goalies, given that one of them hasn't lost a start (in regulation) in calendar year 2010 and the other has had one appearance with a save percentage above .889 since December 7. [CI]
  • Laich is risen! Truly, he is risen! [CI]
  • Guess who has the League's most impactful D-corps. Guess again a few times. Getting warmer. Hint: you root for them. Got it yet? [TSN]
  • A bit of Mike Green-for-Norris love from north of the border. [TSN]
  • Scott Walker has a minor knee injury. More importantly, Scott Walker has perspective. [Corey Masisak]
  • Nice piece on Eric Fehr (who's really bringing new meaning to "net presence," as in Internet presence). [CSN Washington]
  • What thirty fan bases are thinking about their teams. [ESPN]
  • Henrik Sedin won't win the Hart because assists are cheap. Says here that's right. [The Hockey News]

  • Remembering Bryan Murray's time in D.C. [OFB]
  • A much more historically representative "10 Greatest Games" list than what's available on the market. [Ed Frankovic]
  • The latest in Caps sponsorships. Oof. [RtR]
  • John Carlson has been named to the AHL All-Rookie team (and that's likely the last time you'll read "John Carlson" and "AHL" in the same sentence). [Capitals]
  • The Bears tied the AHL single-season win mark last night and Cody Eakin scored on his first shot as a pro. Story. Book. [Patriot-News]
  • Happy 29th birthday to Nolan Yonkman and happier 46th to Scott Stevens.
  • Finally, huge thanks to all of you for making March yet another record-breaking month here at The Rink, with visits up more than 20% and page views up more than 26% over February (and up nearly 200% in both metrics over March, 2009). Here's to an even busier April, start to finish.
