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: Apr. 13
Once again, Michal Neuvirth did not participate fully in practice, but took to the ice later in the session and took some shots from Associate Goaltending Coach Olie Kolzig. At this rate, I say we could see him in game three or four, should that suit Dale Hunter's prerogative.
The forward lines were the same as they were for game one: Ovechkin-Laich-Brouwer, Chimera-Backstrom-Semin, Hendricks-Beagle-Johansson, Aucoin-Perreault-Ward, and Knuble-Halpern-Eakin-Sjogren. All eight defensemen were on ice for Washington, and the practice was very status quo.
Also of note is that Bruins center David Krejci did not skate today after a pane of glass fell on him during the Bruins' post game celebration on Thursday night (video below). Krejci is expected to play on Staurday, but Jordan Caron took his spot on the second line with Rich Peverley and Milan Lucic during practice.
That's all for now. As always, follow me on Twitter here for news and updates.
