    • Yesterday was a true goalie duel, with two heavyweights going head to head; unfortunately Braden Holtby came up on the losing end. [Montreal Gazette]
    • Amazingly enough, it was only the second time in his career that he'd lost to the Habs (the other time being this year's season opener) - and his first loss in Montreal. [CSNW]
    • Not to play the "hot goalie" card, but there's probably no shame in being shut out by Carey Price these days. [Journal de Montreal]
  • Holtby continues to make his case for being one of the representatives for Team Canada at next year's World Cup. []
  • Just one goal shy of the 30-goal mark, Alex Ovechkin is on the verge of joining some elite company. []
  • Brooks Laich, Eric Fehr and Joel Ward - the best not-a-third-line in the League? [THW]
  • A bit more from the Caps on the potential for player tracking. [WaPo]
  • The Buffalo Sabres appear to have their eyes on one of the more dubious distinctions of Caps' franchise history. [Buffalo News]
  • Previews of today's matinee against the Blues from VogsNHL.comSTL TodayStars and Sticks, and AP, and be sure to check out our SB Nation pals over at St. Louis Game Time (and wish them a belated happy 20th anniversary!) for the other side of today's matchup.
    • After a strong effort in yesterday's loss, the Caps look to bounce back with a similar performance - albeit with a better ending - as they host St. Louis. [WaPo]
    • No offense to some proud papas, but all of us are hoping that the Caps can spoil the Blues' fathers' trip. [STL TodayFox2Now]
    • Before that happens, it might be nice to buddy up to the opposition - so swing by Pi for a bit of pregame fun with some folks from the Gateway City (and perhaps a few Rinkers, too). [Game Time]
  • Two of the Caps' pending free agents, Joel Ward and Aaron Volpatti, remain in contract limbo. [TFP]
