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!

Happy Birthday, Michal Neuvirth!

Today, March 23, is Capitals goaltender Michal Neuvirth's 23rd birthday.  The young Czech netminder has been terrific in his first full season with the Caps, compiling 24 wins, a 2.46 GAA, and a .915 Save% in 44 games played.  He has also registered four shutouts, which lead all rookie NHL goaltenders, and has been the Capitals' most consistent goaltender this year due to the extended injury absences of Semyon Varlamov.  Check out this picture of the cake that tweeps Abigail and Garrett made Neuvy for his big day, delivered after practice on Saturday. They painted the mask, too.  Impressive!
