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: May 4

The Washington Capitals were on ice Friday for a practice for the first time since their marathon loss to the Rangers on Wednesday night.  Some updates from Kettler Capitals Iceplex:

As has become the pattern for the last two weeks or so, news of the day from Arlington was that there as almost no news to report; the Caps continue to run their practices status quo.  Dale Hunter's lines remained the same: Ovechkin-Backstrom-Johansson, Chimera-Laich-Semin, Hendricks-Beagle-Brouwer, Knuble-Aucoin-Ward, and Sjogren-Perreault-Halpern.
The defensive pairings also remained the same, meaning that Jeff Schultz is still in the lineup alongside Dennis Wideman and Dmitry Orlov and John Erskine remain the "fourth" pair.

That's all for now.  As always, follow me on Twitter here for news and updates.
