  • Yup, these Caps are pretty good and pretty legit. [Rink]
  • Recaps and other assorted musings on last night's win from us, Vogs (plus game notes), Monumental video (highlights, TrotzHoltby, Orlov, Wilson, Laich, Alzner, McLellan, Oilers room), NHL.comAP, WaPo, CSNMA, Peerless, Frankovic, RMNB, and from up north, Edmonton Sun, Edmonton Journal, Cult of Hockey and Copper & Blue.
    • "Good, veteran teams know how to manage situations. The Oil should have had 3 solid minutes to try and get the equalizer. But the Caps played a very strong final stretch, with a suffocating shift that saw the puck stay deep in the Edmonton zone. Credit to them. That’s how it’s done. I hope the Oilers were taking notes." [Oil on Whyte]
