The Capitals journey to Atlanta tonight to take on the Thrashers for the second time in under a week. The Caps won last week in DC by a 6-4 count.
Boyd Gordon and DJ King will sit out tonight as healthy scratches.
Tomas Fleischmann will make his return after being a healthy scratch last game.
The Marcus Johansson with Alex Ovechkin experiment has ended. Ovie will be re-united with Nick Backstrom and Mike Knuble tonight. It is still unclear as of now who will play with the second line; Johansson or Fleischmann.
Braden Holtby gets the start for the Caps tonight is goal. Atlanta will counter with Ondrej Pavelec.
Puck drops 7:37ish. I have a game of my own tonight so I may not be back in time to watch the beginning of the game. As a result, the Rapid Rewind may be delayed a bit.
Welcome to Caps 'Round the Clock, a blog covering the Washington Capitals and the NHL. In season, I update the Blog after every practice and on game day with Caps news and information, and then provide a recap and analysis after each contest. I also write a periodical Prospect Watch and weekly feature pieces on the state of the Men in Red and other things Capitals. And of course, I will post videos and tidbits from around the League and offer my two cents as the season wears on. In the offseason, I write a Report Card for each player, and will keep you updated on all the news about the Caps through the summer. I'm glad you're here, and hope you come back!
