  • For some reason Jakub Voracek felt the need to appeal his recent two-game suspension, but alas, the NHL would not budge and the Flyers will be without his services tonight. [BSH]

  • Examining why Nick Jensen and Carl Hagelin have blended so seamlessly into the Caps’ lineup and other top-of-mind issues in this week’s mailbag. [NBCSW]
  • A few leftovers from Tuesday’s streak-snapping loss in Pittsburgh. [Caps, NBCSW, RMNB, StarsandSticks]
  • The Sid vs. Ovi rivalry has gone from one merely constructed by League and media to a one of the great rivalries full of animosity and mutual respect. [NBCSW, Tribune-Review]
  • Jakub Vrana hit the 20-goal plateau for the first time Tuesday night, but he provides so much more than goals... so what will that cost this summer? [WaPo, WashTimes]
  • There’s plenty of Dad Strength to go around the Caps’ locker room these days. [Caps]
  • Every top contender has its weaknesses (unless you believe this idea that Tampa is ~*perfect*~). [The Comeback]
