We didn't feel it was right to focus on hockey in the aftermath of yesterday's horrific events at the Capitol - nor did any of us have the mental capacity to do so. So for today, we're just taking a pause and letting things settle a bit.
Sports can certainly be a distraction in times like these. Preparation for the upcoming season will continue out at Medstar, and we'll pick back up where we left off here tomorrow (and return to our Top 10 East Division countdown on Monday).
For today, though, feel free to use this space to chat - and know we're sending big hockey hugs to every one of you in the meantime.
