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: Oct. 28
Mike Green missed his fifth consecutive practice with his right ankle issue; he is not expected to play tomorrow night and has not been able to skate comfortably since sustaining the injury. GM George McPhee does not think that Green's injury is a long-term issue at this point. Bruce Boudreau added that he hopes to have the defenseman back next weekend.
Jeff Halpern took a maintenance day off, with DJ King taking his spot on the fourth line. The other three lines remained the same as they have been for the last two weeks: Ovechkin-Backstrom-Brouwer, Semin-Johansson-Knuble, and Ward-Laich-Chimera.
That's all for now. Check back later for my game preview.
