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. 29
Alexander Semin was dropped from the first line to the fourth one for this practice, taking his reps with Mike Knuble and Keith Aucoin. The other lines were Chimera-Backstrom-Johansson, Ovechkin-Laich-Brouwer, Hendricks-Beagle-Ward, and Sjogren-Perreault-Halpern.
The defensive pairings were also changed, with Dale Hunter putting Jeff Schultz back with Dennis Wideman and John Erskine back with Dmitry Orlov on the extra pairing. Look for that to be the lineup for game two on Monday night.
As always, follow me on Twitter here for news and updates.
