Welcome!

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 6

The Washington Capitals were on ice for a practice Sunday morning following their game four win over the New York Rangers on Saturday afternoon.  Some updates from Arlington:

Once more, the story of the day was that there was no story from Kettler Capitals Iceplex.  Dale Hunter's lines remained unchanged: Ovechkin-Laich-Johansson, Chimera-Backstrom-Semin, Hendricks-Beagle-Brouwer, Knuble-Aucoin-Ward, and Sjogren-Perreault-Halpern.  One bit of news, however, is that captain Alex Ovechkin, who delivered a questionable hit to New York defenseman Dan Girardi in the second period of Saturday's game, is not expected to receive any supplemental discipline.
The defensive pairing of Schultz and Wideman remained unchanged, as well. Some had speculated that after another poor defensive performance by Wideman, he may be benched in favor of Dmitry Orlov for game five, but knowing Dale Hunter and the fact that the Caps won, the likelihood of that happening in a game are very low.

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