  • Once again last night, the Caps struggled through the second period... and Coach Laviolette has had enough of it. [NBCSW]

  • Looking at the impact of COVID around the NHL so far this young season - and what’s next. [ESPN]
  • There’s no question that the Caps broke the rules, and that’s deserving of punishment. But perhaps the rule itself deserves to be questioned. [FTW, Caps Outsider]
  • Brad Marchand lecturing anyone about respecting the rules is just... downright laughable. [The Score]
  • NBC Universal has decided to shutter NBC Sports Network, moving the NHL and other sports to USA Network by the end of the year. [CNBC, Variety, SBD]
