  • Notes and assorted whatnot from yesterday out at Kettler:
  • Today's must-read: when doing the right thing goes wrong. [Peerless]
  • It's time for the goalies to step up and steal some games (though it's hard to imagine a guy playing much better than Braden Holtby did in New York on Sunday night). [WaPo]
  • The Caps have a good record against bad teams and a bad record against good teams. While that will help them within the Division, it's not a formula for success. [WashTimes]
  • Speaking of bad formulas, how about "bad discipline" plus "bad penalty kill"? [WaPo]
  • Thomas Boswell provides some drive-by insight in hindsight when it comes to the Caps and what went wrong. [WaPo]

    • Matt Hendricks on The Sports Reporters... [ESPN 980 (audio)]
    • ... and Holtby on LaVar and Dukes. [106.7 the Fan (audio)]
  • Colin in Great Britain asks, "Is Alexander Ovechkin still a superstar?" (Still waiting to hear from Mr. F in Wee Britain.) [The Guardian]
  • And speaking of Ovi, his thoughts on being wed... to carrying the puck and to his lovely fiancé. [ESPN]
  • Dmitry Orlov continues skating (yay!), but isn't ready for contact yet (opposite of yay!). [Patriot-News, with more on the Bears here]
  • Is it too early to be thinking about Development Camp invitees? Maybe. [CBC (30 Thoughts)]
  • A bit more "Hockey 'n Heels" coverage. [We're A Caps Family, DSP]
  • OMG, the 411 on a VIP STH party, FYI. [Capitals Outsider]
  • Recently retired Andrew Brunette won't soon be forgotten. [Broadcast PR Guy]
  • Finally, happy 57th birthday to Rick Green, happy 56th birthday to Glen Hanlon, and happy 38th birthday to Brendan Witt.
