  • Recaps and other assorted musings on yesterday’s loss from us, Vogs, Caps video (Laviolette, Wilson/Dillon, recap), NHL, AP, WaPo, NBCSW,, Herald, Peerless, NoVa Caps, RMNB, S&S, and Stanley Cup of Chowder.
  • With Zdeno Chara already out day-to-day, the Caps’ blueline took another hit when Taylor Hall hit Justin Schultz with a little (uncalled) knee-on-knee action. [NBCSW]

  • One incident that did happen was Garnet Hathaway earning a major and a game misconduct for boarding Jarred Tinordi. Stay tuned. [NBCSW]
  • Turns out Alex Ovechkin isn’t the only Capital making history these days;
  • With their busy weekend in the books, the Caps now get a rare treat: a three-day break, their longest break of the remaining schedule. [NBCSW]
  • Looking back at the week that was for the Caps and their East Division rivals. [Peerless, Caps Outsider, All About the Jersey]
  • After a long run of consistency, Laviolette has shuffled up his defensive pairs of late. So what is the best configuration for the blueline? [NoVa Caps]
  • A few leftovers from a much more fun afternoon in Philadelphia on Saturday. [Caps, RMNB, S&S, BSH]
