  • Frustration is mounting along with the undeserved losses for the generally reserved goalie Philipp Grubauer. [NBCSW, Kukla’s Korner, DC Puck Drop]
  • Barry Trotz gave updates for some of the Caps’ injured players, and there looks to be some light at the end of the tunnel. Brett Connolly, Tyler Graovac and Matt Niskanen have moved from “week-to-week” to “day-to-day” but none has yet practiced with the team. Andre Burakovsky is on the shelf until sometime in December, and we’ll know more about Madison Bowey at practice today. [NoVa Caps]
  • “I don’t know why I have to fight in that instance. To me, that’s textbook. Everything I’ve been told about instigating, that’s what that is. It’s frustrating from that standpoint.” Tom Wilson fought Jake McCabe on Tuesday night, and still isn’t sure why. [NBCSW]
  • Caps vs. the Trap. [NoVa Caps]
  • 0-15. That’s the number of DC home wins vs. pro sports teams from Dallas since 2013. Nutty, nu? [DC Sports Bog]
  • Finally, happy 23rd birthday to Zach Sanford.
