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. 19

The Washington Capitals were on ice Monday morning at 10:30 as they prepare for Tuesday night's game with the Nashville Predators.  Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:
Mike Green skated by himself for about 40 minutes before practice began, and left the ice as soon as the rest of his teammates came on for practice.  Dale Hunter would not provide an update on Green after practice, saying only that he "looked good skating."  Okay.
Dale Hunter also took a blowtorch to his lines again, rolling the following units: Johansson-Backstrom-Ovechkin, Brouwer-Halpern-Semin, Chimera-Laich-Ward, and Hendricks-Perreault-Knuble-Beagle.  Midway through the skate, a Capitals spokesperson said that Beagle has indeed been cleared for a full practice, including contact.  Players did hit him during practice, and he said he "felt good" but has absolutely no timetable for a return to game action.

That's all for now.
