  • Oh, you don’t know much about Daniel Sprong? Then check out a little Sprong History 101. [THW]
  • The Capitals will be rocking the green during warmups on Friday, donning green St. Patty’s Day jerseys that will then be auctioned off to benefit Leveling the Playing Field. [Capitals]
  • If you ask Alan May, the Capitals are more than poised to make a solid run this postseason. [NBCSW]
  • The Hershey Bears recalled goaltender Hunter Shepard from the South Carolina Stingrays, the club’s ECHL affiliate, yesterday. [NoVa Caps]

  • Finally, a big happy 44th birthday to Zdeno Chara, the tallest Cap that ever was, and happy 43rd birthday to Jan Bulis, 37th birthday to Jonas Johansson, 49th birthday to Craig Johnson, and 47th birthday to Brantt Myhres!
