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: Feb. 15

The Washington Capitals were on ice Wednesday morning for a practice as they prepare for a critical four-game road trip, starting at the end of the week, which will make or break their season.  Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:

Mike Green, who had been skating apart from his teammates and not participating in practice since his surgery, finally joined the Caps for a workout Wednesday.  Green did not take many hits during practice, but did work on the power play, and a decision on his status for the road trip will me made after tomorrow's practice.
Outside of this very good news on Green, Dale Hunter showcased new practice lines to account for the demotions of Joel Rechlicz and Keith Aucoin.  They were as such: Ovechkin-Johansson-Brouwer, Hendricks-Laich-Knuble, Chimera-Perreault-Semin, and Beagle-Halpern-Ward.

That's all for now.
