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!

Around the NHL: Big Win for Bruins

The Boston Bruins got back in the win column Sunday, knocking off the Philadelphia Flyers by a final score of 2-1 inside the Wells Fargo Center to clinch a spot in the playoffs. The Flyers took an early lead five minutes off the stick of Kris Versteeg, but the Bruins then began to take control of the game and tied it with 12 minutes left in the second; Nathan Horton equalized for Boston.  After furious next 29 minutes that saw both teams get great chances to take the lead, the Bruins finally capitalized on a power play and Brad Marchand scored the game winner with about four minutes to go.  With their win, the Bruins pull within four points of the Caps for second in the East, and they also hold a game in hand on Washington. Since the Penguins also won Sunday, clinching a playoff spot in the process, the Flyers' loss now has them only two points ahead of the Pens for the Northeast Division lead. Philadelphia does, however, hold a game in hand on Pittsburgh.
