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: Jan. 14
After a game with new lines, Dale Hunter returned to his old units for this skate. The lines were as follows: Ovechkin-Johansson-Semin, Knuble-Laich-Brouwer, Ward-Halpern-Chimera, and Eakin-Hendricks-Beagle-Perreault.
Mike Green and Nicklas Backstrom were nowhere to be seen, again, as they continue to recover from groin and head injuries, respectively. Dale Hunter would not provide an update on either player following practice, and neither has skated in over a week.
Check back later.
