  • As always when the Caps and Pens clash, all eyes were on Ovechkin and Crosby (even if neither did much last night). [NHL, SI]
  • Since arriving in DC, Darcy Kuemper has been pretty stellar on most nights... last night was not one of those nights. Woof. [NBCSW]
  • Lars Eller had some interesting thoughts on what the Caps need to improve (aside from just getting a full, healthy slate of NHLers out there). [NBCSW]
  • The Caps’ upcoming schedule looks intimidating, but is it as scary as it looks on paper? [S&S]
  • With Alex Alexeyev’s conditioning stint complete, the team summoned him from the Bears and sent Lucas Johansen back to Hershey to make space. [Caps]
  • There were actually some good(ish?) updates on the team’s many, many injured players. Hooray... [NBCSW]
  • Former Cap Aaron Volpatti talks about the harrowing experience that changed his life - and almost derailed his NHL dreams. [WHN]
  • Finally, happy 66th birthday to Greg Carroll!
