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. 28

The Washington Capitals were on ice this morning at 10:30 as they prepare for their second round series against the Lightning. Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:

Mike Knuble, Dennis Wideman, and DJ King skated with the Hershey call-ups for the second day in a row on the B rink at Kettler.  Both Wideman and Knuble are working their way back from injuries, and there is no specific timetable for either of their returns to the active Washington lineup.
The only player who did not skate was Tom Poti, who is still out with a groin injury.  The lines remained the same from yesterday: Ovechkin-Backstrom-Laich, Semin-Arnott-Sturm, Fehr-Chimera-Johansson, and Hendricks-Beagle-Gordon-Bradley.
The Lightning flew directly to DC from Pittsburgh last night and did not practice today.

That's all for now.  Check back later.
