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: Nov. 30
Mike Green was put through his paces by head strength and conditioning coach Mark Nemish on the ice for about 30 minutes before the rest of his teammates took the ice for practice. Despite the fact that he has now skated for four consecutive days, there is no timetable for his return to the lineup, even though he is "feeling better." Sigh.
As for the actual practice, the lines remained the same as they were for Tuesday night's loss to the Blues: Ovechkin-Backstrom-Brouwer, Semin-Johansson-Eakin, Ward-Laich-Chimera, and Hendricks-Halpern-Knuble, with Mathieu Perreault taking rushes with the fourth line. Why Mike Knuble continues to be banished to the fourth line on a regular basis despite his excellent play, even with a new coach, makes no sense to me. Ho-hum. On to the next one.
That's all for now. Check back later.
