  • ... but hey, the Russian Machine was back in time for the Caps Canine Calendar photoshoot (about which more below), with wife and pupper, and apparently moving with ease. [NBCSW]
  • Andre Burakovsky’s Swedish Machine may be headed back to the shop as he missed practice with an “upper body issue” and may not make the trip... [WaPo]
  • ... and if he can’t go, what does it mean for the team? For one thing it means shuffled lines in practice. [NBCSW, NoVa Caps,
  • Penalties are getting to be a problem. Just ask the players. [NBCSW, THW]
  • Tick-tock and it don’t stop. Alex Ovechkin has been remarkably consistent in October throughout his career. [NoVa Caps]
  • “One of my main jobs is to not only ensure that I get goalies to the NHL, but also help goalie coaches under me get to the NHL.” Mitch Korn made sure that Scott Murray was prepared to assume the duties of a goalie coach at the top level. [WaPo]
