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!

Scoreless After One
Ryan Miller is standing on his head this afternoon in Buffalo, as he made 16 saves in the first period, several of them spectacular. The Capitals were awarded four power plays in the opening frame, including a minute and a half of 5-on-3, but were unable to penetrate Miller and have likely seen the majority of their power plays for the day already happen. With almost any other goalie, this game is 3-0 for Washington right now. Just a testament to how unlucky they are at some times. Be prepared for alot of Buffalo power play time over the remainder of the game.
