    • The Verizon Center faithful got their first look at the Caps' new Winter Classic display. [RMNB]
  • Camp continues today with a morning skate for the players headed to Boston for tonight's game (roster released in the morning, but we're told nobody is playing back-to-back). The remaining players will form Groups Red and White and their practices will be from 10:30-1:30 or so.
