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. 29
The lines were the same as they were for Wednesday night's win over the Rangers: Ovechkin-Backstrom-Semin, Ward-Laich-Chimera, Johansson-Halpern-Brouwer, and Knuble-Hendricks-Beagle-Perreault.
Mike Green also took his third consecutive full practice as he recovers from a groin injury, taking full rushes with his fellow defensemen and not looking like he was hesitating very much at all. After skating, green said that he could be back this weekend but a more realistic timeline would be next week, ideally Tuesday against Calgary.
That's all for now.
