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. 2

The Washington Capitals were on ice Thursday at 12 noon for an optional skate following their 4-2 loss to the Florida Panthers on Wednesday night.  Some updates from Kettler:

Mike Green skated today, as he had done on both Wednesday and Tuesday, according to a Capitals spokesman.  Green said after the skate that he feels good, and is already noticing the positive effects from his surgery.  The defenseman mentioned that he feels he is on track to return within his original projected timeframe, which means he could see game action in 2-4 weeks.  This is certainly great news.
Only eight other Caps skated: Ovechkin, Schultz, Erskine, Beagle, Eakin, Vokoun, Rechlicz, and Ward.  Dale Hunter also indicated after the skate that Nicklas Backstrom is progressing and that he "feels better" but that you cannot rush concussions.  Which we know already.

That's all for now.
