  • The Caps have thus far defied the odds, as they didn’t miss a beat during the pause and sit in a tie for the league lead despite losing a number of key players to injuries and COVID protocol. [AP, THW]
  • Of course, the day they get Martin Fehervary back from protocol, both Dmitry Orlov and Ilya Samsonov left practice early with apparent injuries. Unreal. [Caps, WaPo, NoVa Caps, WHN]
  • Here’s hoping Orlov is okay, because he and Nick Jensen have teamed up to be a pretty dangerous pair at both ends of the ice. [Caps]
  • Hear from the coach and another one of his blueliners after an eventful practice. [Caps video (Laviolette, Carlson)]
