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!

Practice: Apr. 16

The Washington Capitals were on ice this afternoon at 12 for a practice following last night's 2-0 playoff win over the Rangers.  Some notes from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:

Dennis Wideman skated alone before practice for the second day in a row.  The defenseman skated without pads, and out himself through a little bit of skating and shooting before leaving the ice after about 15 minutes.
The entire team except for Wideman took part in the full skate.  This included Mike Green, who scared many when he took a high hit late last night and immediately left the ice.  Tom Poti also skated after missing the previous morning skate.  There is still no timetable for his return.
There was one curious change up top, however, as Jason Arnott centered Alex Ovechkin and Mike Knuble while Nicklas Backstrom centered Marco Sturm and Alexander Semin.  It remains to be seen whether these changes will go into effect tomorrow.

That's all from a very short practice at Kettler today.  Check back later.
