  • Recaps and other assorted musings on yesterday's overtime loss from us, Vogs, Monumental video (Trotz, Backstrom, Green, Johansson, Niskanen, Holtby, Alzner),, AP, WaPo (gamer, blog), DSP, RMNB, Stars and Sticks, and from the Ottawa end of the ice, Silver Seven, Ottawa Citizen.
    • Ottawa's Racing Prime Ministers want to throw down with the Nats' Racing Presidents. Bring it, America's Hat. [RMNB]
  • Previews of this evening's 5pm tilt at Joe Louis Arena from Vogs (plus game notes) and; be sure to check out our SB Nation pals over at Winging It In Motown for the other side of today's matchup.
  • The Hershey Bears bid a fond farewell to the Norfolk Admirals with a Pheonix Copley shutout; their tenth (and record-setting) whitewash of the season. The Ads are weighing anchor and sailing West this offseason, and as of now there are no plans to host any more hockey in Norfolk. [Patriot-News]
  • More appreciation for Alex Ovechkin:
    • From Steve Simmons (!) - Ovi laid waste to a record that has stood since Bobby Hull roamed the ice. [Toronto Sun]
    • An even Greater 8. [Sporting News]
    • Awards? AO8 gets them. [SF Gate]
  • Coach Trotz would like to get Dmitry Orlov into the lineup, but the timing (meaning a playoff berth clinched) has to be right. [PHT]
  • Justin Peters would certainly love to get some game time, and to that end Coach Korn has him trying some new things. [WaPo]
  • The ones that got away - the Caps could ice a mostly formidable team with players active in the Lig they either allowed to walk or traded elsewhere. Scabs, be prepared to be picked at. Also, Marty Erat still can't catch a break. [DSP]
  • Finally, spend some time with Jakub Klepis, hockey pilgrim. He talks about his career from the Dub to the A to the NHL and on to Siberia with Jaromir Jagr and beyond. [ via GoogleCzech, and don't miss the photo gallery]
