  • Previews of tonight’s game against the Cats from Vogs, AP, and FLM, and be sure to swing by our pals over at Litter Box Cats for the view from behind enemy lines.
  • Coach Carbery met with the media yesterday to talk about his increasingly banged-up squad. [Caps video]
  • One of those updates was on T.J. Oshie, who is still being evaluated and won’t play tonight, and…yeah, doesn’t sound great. But we’ll see. [NHL, THN]
  • With Oshie out and Nic Dowd still on the shelf, the Caps put out a call for another body from Hershey – this time recalling Hendrix Lapierre. [Caps, THN]
  • A few leftovers from Thursday night’s win over the Bolts. [S&S]
  • One of the few NHL scoring records not held by Wayne Gretzky belongs to Jaromir Jagr…but could Alex Ovechkin pass that one, too? [Caps Outsider]
  • Finally, happy 66th birthday to Tim Coulis, and happy 38th to Wojtek Wolski!
