    • Don't look now, but Jay Beagle is on pace for about 12 goals this year. [Monumental video]
    • Fist-bumps all around! [washingtoncaps]
    • From Elias: Eric Fehr scored the overtime goal which earned the Capitals a 2-1 win against the Coyotes and he did so on his only shot on goal in the game. Two other NHL players have scored an overtime goal on their lone shot on goal in a game this season: Rangers defenseman Kevin Klein (October 21 at New Jersey), and Jaromir Jagr (October 25 at Ottawa).
  • Once an area of weakness for the Caps, their prospect pipeline is now chock full of up-and-coming blueliners. [HF]

    • In general. [Monumental video (TrotzChimeraRinkside Update/Brown), Dump 'n Chase]
    • Barry Trotz shuffled his lines again prior to last night's game, giving Evgeny Kuznetsov a bit more talent on his wings. [WaPo]
    • Mistakes are a part of hockey, but lately the Caps have been making mistakes that are costing them goals-against - and games. [WaPo]
    • Brooks Orpik talks about how he measures success against the League's best offensive players - and that it's not just about shots taken. [NBC4]
  • Mike Green doesn't get enough respect. Obvious to all of us? Yes. Worth repeating and explaining in more detail? Always. [RMNB]
  • The Caps have one of the best - and one of the worst - puck-movers in the League right now. Bet you'll be able to guess one more easily than the other. [PDL]
  • Keith Jones talks about the suddenly oft-injured Brooks Laich and his future with the Caps. [CSNW]
  • Enough with the excuses, enough with the laziness - just play better! [THW]
