  • Looking back at two games worth of ups and downs... [Rink]
  • ... and one specific moment that mattered - Alex Ovechkin 's second goal of the season. [Rink]
  • Previews of tonight's Shark attack from, CCTimes, Peerless, Caps OutsiderBrooksLaichyear and Stars & Sticks (and again), and be sure to check out our SB Nation pals over at Fear The Fin for more from the other side of tonight's match-up.
  • News and notes from yesterday out at Kettler:
    • In general. [Monumental video (TrotzHoltby, Carlson, Wilson), Dump 'n Chase]
    • For all of us wondering whether Tom Wilson is headed to Hershey or not once he's healthy, we have an answer: they don't know yet. [WaPo, CSNW]
    • Let's get physical. [CSNW]
    • Abraham Lincoln once quipped, "If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?" In Brooks Laich's case, yeah, probably. (Just be thankful I didn't make a "four score" joke and click through.) [CSNW, WaPo, Puck Daddy]
    • The Captain made a lot of kids (whose schools honor ol' Chris Columbus) happy. [Monumental (video), and for more "Ovi makes kid happy" goodness from this weekend, head over to RMNB]
  • How about that penalty kill, eh? [CSNW]
  • The Bears opened their season with a loss, but weekly features care not - three stars still needed to be awarded, and, dutifully, were. [Patriot-News]
  • Speaking of Hershey, the AHL's veteran rule and the parent club's development tendencies highlight Tim Leone's mailbag. [Patriot-News]
  • Oh, and also the Bears won last night. [Patriot-News]
  • Congrats to Caps' prospect (and Providence forward) Brian Pinho on being names Hockey East Rookie of the Week. [SB Nation College Hockey]
  • Nothing comes between Jason Chimera and Joel Ward (except, y'know, whomever's centering that line). [WaPo]
