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. 23
Alex Ovechkin, who missed Wednesday's loss with a lower-body injury, did not participate in practice with his teammates. Instead, he engaged in some light skating and shooting before practice, again, testing his injury and trying to work through it. All in all, he skated for about 15 minutes.
Without Ovechkin, the entire team that played last night as well as the scratches practiced. The lines were Knuble-Laich-Brouwer, Chimera-Perreault-Semin, Johansson-Aucoin-Hendricks, and Beagle-Halpern-Ward.
That's all for now.
