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!

1-1 After Two
The Capitals and Sabres traded goals in the second period and the teams are still tied after the second, although it is now at one. Mathieu Perreault converted first for the Capitals when a Matt Hendricks dump in pass bounced off the glass sanction and kicked out to the front, where the Quebecois slapped it past a surprised Miller. But the Sabres answered right back on the power play when Jason Pominville slapped shot over Varlamov's shoulder while the netminder was being screened by Scott Hannan. The Caps again outshot the Sabres, 18-10, and Ryan Miller is still on fire.
