  • Previews of tonight's needlin' with the 'Ning from Vogs, NHL.com, Peerless, RMNB, and CRtC, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partner Raw Charge for more coverage from the other side of tonight's match-up.
  • Notes and assorted whatnot from yesterday out at Kettler:
    • In general. [Caps365 video (Rinkside Update, Hunter), CRtC]
    • 'Twas a maintenance day for Jason Chimera ... [WashTimes]
    • ... though he was able to Take 5 with John Walton. [Capitals Voice]
    • It's possible the Caps may be facing a rookie goalie making his first NHL start tonight. [CSNW]
    • Fun? Roman Hamrlik is having none of it. [CSNW]
    • Mike Green is pointless since his return and still looking for his game. [CSNW (and again)]
    • A goal, a near-goal, and success in containing Eric Staal. All in all a promising third-line debut for Jay Beagle ... [WashTimes]
    • ... offset by a much less auspicious day for Dennis Wideman. [WashTimes, WaPo]
    • Stammer time! [WTOP.com]
    • Dmitry Orlov will not face any supplemental discipline for his role in the fracas in the Carolina game. Neither, for that matter, will Jeff Skinner. [WaPo, CSNW, WashTimes (and again)]
    • Opposing teams are not having to work very hard for their goals. Perhaps that should change. [WaPo]
    • Ovie the Goalie makes wishes come true. [Alex Ovetjkin, Glittarazzi, @TheBernieBae]
