The WTimes has a piece on how the Caps' next destination, Rochester, holds a special place in Olie Kolzig's heart. Awww. Perhaps most noteworthy is a throw-away note at the end of the article that Dainius Zubrus missed practice yesterday with a "lower body injury." Uh oh.
In other NHL news:
- The Coyotes traded former Caps blueliner Rick Berry to Nashville. Hey, David Poile, your team is undefeated and you trade for a defenseman the Caps didn't even want?
- Marian Gaborik is back out of the Minnesota lineup (though he did not reaggravate his groin injury), the Oilers sent goaltender Ty Conklin to the AHL for "conditioning," and Thrasher tough Eric Boulton was suspended six games for his cheap shot against Tampa.
