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. 6

The Washington Capitals were on ice Tuesday morning as they work towards building consistency following another poor showing Monday night against the Panthers.  Some updates from BankAtlantic Center:

Matt Hendricks missed practice with an undisclosed lower-body injury.  Per a team spokesman, he is day-to-day; he only played 4:22 last night and did not see the ice at all in the third period.  As such, Dale Hunter had to shake up his lines: Ovechkin-Backstrom-Semin, Brouwer-Johannson-Halpern, Chimera-Laich-Ward, and Eakin-Perreault-Knuble.
Roman Hamrlik skated again; he has missed the last three games with a lower body injury.  No word on whether or not he will be able to play Wednesday night in Ottawa.

That's all for now.
