  • Ilya Samsonov is getting some serious run support from the team in front of him this season (and really since the start of his career). [Rink]
  • News and notes from yesterday’s practice, which featured the first appearance of new Cap Michael Raffl (but was missing Justin Schultz... ruh roh). [Caps video (Laviolette, Raffl, Caps365), NoVa Caps]
  • Orlov isn’t the only defenseman adding offense; the Caps’ blueline has been prolific, and it’s coming from all of them. [NoVa Caps]
  • Being traded is never easy - but the fact that the Caps really wanted him was enough to make the move to DC okay for Anthony Mantha. [WaPo]
  • With Boston heating up and the Caps, Pens and Isles holding serve, the East Division crown appears to be up for grabs. [NBCSW]
  • Can the Caps go up against those other top teams? [S&S]
  • For the first time in over a year, fans will be on hand to watch the Caps live starting this Monday. Here’s what you need to know about heading back to Cap One. [NBCSW]
  • Finally, happy 64th birthday to Mark Lofthouse, happy 51st to Stewart Malgunas, and happy 44th to Miika Elomo.
