  • Bless.
  • With his goal last night, 43-year-old Zdeno Chara breaks a franchise record that has stood since the team’s inaugural season. [Caps Outsider]
  • Of course, it wasn’t all fun and games, as Justin Schultz was struck up high with a puck and will be reevaluated today. [NBCSW]
  • The Caps will face off against Chara’s former team tomorrow night... but don’t expect noted pain in the ass Brad Marchand to chirp the big man. Wimp. [NESN]
  • News and notes and a look at Nick’s shiner from yesterdays’ pregame skate. [Vogs, Caps video (Backstrom, Oshie, Rinkside Update/Hagelin)]
  • There is one drawback to Vitek Vanecek’s emergence - and it has to do with this summer’s expansion draft. [NBCSW]
  • Finally, happy 40th birthday to Roman Tvrdon, happy 35th to Chris Bourque, happy 44th to Jason Doig, happy 38th to Tim Gleason, happy 57th to Ed Kastelic, happy 32nd to Kevin Shattenkirk, and raise a glass to the memory of Wayne Stephenson, who would’ve been 76 today.
