  • Notes and assorted whatnot from yesterday's practice:
    • In general. [Caps365 video (Kettler Report, Boudreau, Ovechkin, Laich, Beagle)]
    • Mike Green skates, briefly, and Troy Brouwer doesn't. [CW (Whyno), CI (Carrera), DCEx (McNally)]
    • Both Green and Brouwer will travel with the team, though it's not certain that they will play. [CI (Carrera)]
    • Jay Beagle makes an appearance. He plans to skate today for the first time post-injury at KCI while the team is on the road. [CW (Whyno, and again), DCEx (McNally)]
    • D.J. King will play the waiting game. [CI (Carrera)]
    • The lines looked a little different at practice, with Alexander Semin on 1R and a Eakin-MJ90-MP85 second line. Will that hold in a game situation? We'll know later tonight. [DCEx (McNally)
  • Bruce Boudreau did his weekly hit with Chad and LaVar. Guess what he talked about. [106.7 The Fan (audio)]
  • Something about this season seems... familiar. [Peerless]
  • Of youth and age. [Dump 'N Chase]
  • Defense-by-committee appears to be the name of the game as the Caps' blueliners work without Mike Green ... [WashTimes (Whyno)]
  • ... but it sure helps to have Dennis Wideman picking up the offense. [WaPo (Carrera)]
  • One more look back at Cody Eakin's big-league debut. [CI (El-Bashir)]
  • Five minutes with Brooks Laich, and his interesting insight regarding his role with the team. [Golden Goal Sports]
  • In which John Carlson, Karl Alzner, Jeff Schultz, and Troy Brouwer help raise awareness and money to end domestic violence by wearing bespoke suits. [, and hey Sarge]
  • "Beer me!" #fancystats for the frosty beverage set at the Verizon Center and arenas around the league. [Puck Daddy]
  • Happiness is Caps' Young Guns. [Mr. Irrelevant]
  • Finally, happy 33rd birthday to Rick Berry.
