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!

Another Day Off

The Capitals have been given today off as well by coach Bruce Boudreau and will not practice.  This is likely due to the Capitals' heavy schedule over the last week and the fact that they did not get back from Pittsburgh after Monday's game until yesterday afternoon.  The Capitals are expected to return to practice at 10:30 tomorrow morning.
As a result, there are no updates on the condition of center Nicklas Backstrom who reportedly suffered a broken thumb Monday night.  The Capitals have only said that he is "day-to-day," and they will not disclose the full measure of the injury, because their team policy is only to do so when a long-term injury is feared.  So I guess that's some good news.
