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!

Fleischmann Out For Season

Flash has seen better days...
Some sad news out of Colorado this evening as it was announced that former Cap Tomas Fleischmann will miss the rest of the season with pulmonary emboli, or blood clots, in both of his lungs.  Flash was traded to the Avalanche on November 30th for defenseman Scott Hannan.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Flash and his family as he battles this life-threatening condition that could have killed him if he had played tonight.  He is, however, expected to make a full recovery.
