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: Dec. 12
The entire team, except Mike Green, was present for the skate. This included Jay Beagle, who is working his way back from a concussion, and Matt Hendricks, who missed most of last week with a knee injury. The fact that Green missed another practice, and has now not skated for four days in a row, officially indicates that he has had a setback in my book, regardless of what Dale Hunter or the team feels like revealing.
The lines remained the same as they were Friday night: Ovechkin-Backstrom-Semin, Brouwer-Johansson-Halpern, Chimera-Laich-Ward, and Hendricks-Eakin-Knuble-Perreault. Poor Knuble, someone get him out of the dungeons. Please.
That's all for now.
