  • Things are starting to heat up in the Metropolitan Division, and the whole hockey world is talking about it. [SBN, WaPo, Sportsnet,, AP, CSNMA, RMNB]
  • So it's probably a pretty good thing that the Caps seem to be turning a corner. [CSNMA, Caps Outsider]
  • And that Evgeny Kuznetsov is potentially becoming extremely dangerous again. [CSNMA]
  • The future's looking pretty bright, as well, as Jakub Vrana is settling in nicely to his new NHL role (even if he doesn't believe it)... [CSNMA]
  • ...and down in Hershey, Zach Sanford is racking up the points against AHL opponents. [NoVa Caps (and again)]
  • Checking in with the boys out at Kettler. [Monumental video (Trotz, Rinkside Update/Beagle)]
  • A few leftovers from Sunday's win over Vancouver. [Rink Rank, CSNMA, CBS DC]

  • Remembering the contribution of Brett Leonhardt and the other emergency backup goalies over the years. []
  • Finally, happy 41st birthday to Bates Battaglia, happy 31st to Andrew Gordon, happy 47th to Sergei Fedorov, and raise a glass in memory of Doug Mohns, who would have been 83 today.
