  • The NHL's got their own top 100 list, and Alex Ovechkin is one of six active players to take his rightful place alongside some of the game's best (and... some other guys). [Caps OT (with Feds!), @capitals, Dump 'n Chase, WaPo, CSNMA, Puck Daddy]
  • Which was worse - Jon Hamm getting Ovechkin's name wrong, or Jon Hamm, noted St. Louis Blues fan, being given a joke mocking the Caps for not winning a Cup? Hmm. [WaPo, Puck Daddy]
  • Their teammates are off on vacation while they represent the Caps at the ASG, but Ovechkin and Braden Holtby have major plans to "chill" in LA. [WaPo, CSNMA]
  • They will have to do a bit of work, though, now that the assignments for today's Skills competition are out. [WashTimes, NHL.com]

  • Braden Holtby and the quest for another Vezina Trophy. [NoVa Caps]
